Giants | Madison Bumgarner does it all

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 19:58:07 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner improved to 8-4 with a win over the Colorado Rockies Sunday, June 28, allowing two runs on five hits over 7 2/3 innings and striking out eight to surpass 1,000 for his career. He also went 2-for-3 with a solo home run at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) is enjoying his best stretch of the season, and he has allowed two runs or less in four straight starts while striking out 38 batters in 31 innings over the same stretch. When he is dealing, Bumgarner can be one of the toughest pitchers in the game, and he is a borderline must-start at FantasyScore right now.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner fans 14 in no-decision

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 05:04:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner retired the first 14 San Diego Padres hitters he faced and finished with 14 strikeouts, but he did not pick up the decision. The Padres needed 11 innings for a 3-2 win over the Giants on Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Chalk this up as bad luck for Bumgarner ($9,100, 18.2% of cap), who pitched a whale of a game but didn't get the credit in the end. The biggest headache Bumgarner owners will have this season is a lack of run support at times, but it doesn't prevent FantasyScore players from making him a must-start.

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:34:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner is 4-2 with a 1.65 ERA in seven career starts against the Milwaukee Brewers, who he faces Tuesday, May 26. He is 1-0 with a 0.57 ERA in two starts at Miller Park.

Fantasy Tip: Even though the Brewers aren't nearly as anemic on offense as they were in the season's opening month, Bumgarner ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) remains a fine starting pitching option tonight on the road, especially given his career numbers against the Brew Crew.

Mon, 04 May 2015 19:49:26 -0700

Diamondbacks | Ender Inciarte solid against Bumgarner

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 01:41:06 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Ender Inciarte is 6-for-15 lifetime against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has six hits against the Giants' top pitcher, so the best bet is to leave him in your lineup when he goes up against the World Series MVP.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner roughed up

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 19:15:29 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner lasted just three innings Saturday, April 11, against the San Diego Padres, his shortest outing since June of 2011.

Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) allowed 10 hits and five earned runs, while striking out four batters. Unless an injury is revealed later on, chalk this one up to just a bad day for one of the league's best left-handers. This should serve to more of a testament to the Padres improved offense.

Giants | Madison Bumgarner tapped for opener

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 04:23:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner is slated to start the opener Monday, April 6, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Bumgarner ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) carries a hefty price tag, but the investment is worth it. He faces a weaker-hitting lineup in the Diamondbacks, a team that Bumgarner was 2-0 with a 2.22 ERA against last season. The Giants' hitting lineup has some holes to fill, but Bumgarner is a pitcher that can easily overcome those flaws.
