Giants | Madison Bumgarner takes hard-luck CG loss

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 19:45:28 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner went the distance but suffered his first loss in exactly two months Monday, June 20, despite yielding only one run on five hits while striking out eight against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The 1-0 defeat also ended a 10-game stretch in which the Giants won each time Bumgarner took the mound.

Fantasy Tip: Erik Kratz's fifth-inning solo shot proved to be the difference. Despite the setback, Bumgarner has allowed one run or less - and no more than two earned - in any of his last 12 outings, striking out at least seven at least eight times over that span. The Giants' ace will be an elite play in all formats in his next scheduled start at home Saturday against the struggling Philadelphia Phillies.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner wins seventh in a row

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 23:05:08 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner won his seventh straight decision Tuesday, June 14, against the Milwaukee Brewers. The perennial NL Cy Young contender recorded eight sharp innings of two-run ball, allowing only four hits and one walk, while striking out eight. For what it's worth, he also went 1-for-2 at the plate with a couple walks.

Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner is on some kind of amazing run right now, as he's now surrendered two earned runs or less in 11 straight starts. In the process, he's registered at least eight strikeouts in six of them. Simply put, Bumgarner looks like he'll be putting up a fight over this year's NL Cy Young award. Fantasy owners just need to keep starting him every time he toes the rubber.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner dominates Braves

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 15:31:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner was outstanding in his start Thursday, June 2, versus the Atlanta Braves. He worked 7 2/3 scoreless innings, scattering just four hits and two walks, while tying a season high with 11 strikeouts. For what it's worth, he also went 1-for-4 at the plate with a two-run homer -- his second of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner was in his usual top form here, as Atlanta couldn't get anything going at all other than a little rally in the first inning that ended up producing nothing. With the exceptional performance, MadBum lowered his ERA to a microscopic 1.91, en route to improving his record to 7-2. He's a must-start option every time he toes the rubber.

Cubs | Miguel Montero not starting Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 14:17:21 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not starting Sunday, May 22, against the San Francisco Giants. C David Ross is batting eighth against Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Montero and Ross have been largely platooning, so this move should come as no surprise to Cubs fans. Ross generally has little fantasy value even though he has shown he can hit home runs off Bumgarner (one in six at-bats).

Cubs | Jason Heyward out Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 14:11:18 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jason Heyward (ribs) is out of the starting lineup Sunday, May 22, against the San Francisco Giants. OF Matt Szczur will bat seventh and play right field against Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: As mentioned in previous tips, Heyward could be out anywhere from three to five days following his rib injury on Saturday. Szczur, himself just back from the DL due to hamstring issues, has six hits in his last 15 at-bats and makes a decent pickup in daily contests.

Fantasy Tip: The former World Series MVP was out to a bit of a slow start through his first few assignments this season, but has settled in nicely since then, as he's now yielded two runs or less in six straight starts.
