MadBum DFA’d

The Arizona Diamondbacks have designated pitcher Madison Bumgarner for assignment. They have decided it’s better to absorb the $34M they owe him over the next two seasons rather than try to resurrect him as a productive starting pitcher. The velocity of his fastball has dropped to less than 90 MPH, and his ERA has ballooned to over 10. In the 4 games in which he has appeared, the team is 1-3… when he hasn’t pitched, they are 10-5. They have apparently decided he is the Dodgers’ and Padres’ MVP.

The Snakes have one week to find a trade partner. It’s very unlikely anyone will want to take on his deal or throw them any kind of bone. Thus, Bumgarner will be a free agent next week, and any team can then sign him for league minimum.
