Bumgarner tossed six innings of shutout ball Wednesday, allowing just one hit and striking out three against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants' ace was only scheduled to go four or five innings Wednesday, but he made such quick work of the Angels that he was allowed go a full six frames. Bumgarner -- who isn't known for stellar spring numbers (3.98 ERA) -- has posted a 2.81 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP in sixteen Cactus League innings. He appears to be in mid-season form and is about as safe as a No. 1 fantasy starter can be.

Bumgarner went two innings in his second start of the spring, giving up two runs on two hits while walking one and striking out one against the Padres on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner has now given up four runs in three Cactus League innings, but there is absolutely no cause for concern. With pitchers of his ilk, spring training stats mean little to nothing. Bumgarner is no exception, posting a career 4.28 spring training ERA across 138.2 innings while owning a 2.99 career mark. As long as he is healthy heading towards Opening Day, then Bumgarner should be considered a top-tier starting pitcher for the 2017 season.

Bumgarner opted not to participate in the WBC this year, instead focusing on preparing for the regular season, CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Potential Bumgarner owners will be delighted that he isn't putting his body through any additional high-leverage innings. If there were any pitcher that would be able to handle that workload, the former World Series MVP would top the list. Workload concerns have always surrounded Bumgarner, but he appears to be cut from a different cloth, quashing any sort of arm fatigue concerns with consistent dominance on the mound. He should be considered a top-tier pitcher again this season.

Bumgarner (15-9) allowed eight hits, but he rebounded to allowed just three runs over 7.1 innings to lift San Francisco to a crucial victory over Los Angeles on Friday night. He also struck out five and walked one.

EDGE Analysis

With St. Louis already winning, the Giants had to win in order to stay one game ahead of the Cardinals. Bumgarner yielded two runs in the first, but he basically shut the door from there, allowing just five more base runners over the final six frames. Bumgarner will now prepare for either the NL Wild Card or a playoff tiebreaker, which he surely will start should the Giants make it. He finishes the regular season with a 2.74 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 251 strikeouts over 226.2 innings.

Bumgarner allowed five runs on four hits, including three homers in a no-decision over the Padres on Saturday. He also struck out five and walked one.

EDGE Analysis

It was the first time all season Bumgarner yielded three homers in one outing. The Giants ace has now tossed up 26 home runs this season. San Francisco is 2-2 in Bumgarner's last four starts, and he hasn't won a game since Sept. 3. He is 14-9 with a 2.71 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 246 strikeouts in 219.1 innings this season. His final regular season start will be Friday against the Dodgers.

Bumgarner threw seven shutout innings and allowed just one hit with 10 strikeouts but was left with a no-decision Monday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner must be furious at the lack of support from his teammates, as he did everything he could to give the Giants a chance to win Monday night. This marks the sixth time he has reached double-digit strikeouts this year. Monday's performance brings him to 241 strikeouts for the season, enough for a career high and a brilliant 10.2 K/9.

Bumgarner took the loss in the series finale against the Padres. He allowed three runs on seven hits, struck out five and walked two over 6.2 innings, as San Diego completed the sweep.

EDGE Analysis

That's now six starts where Bumgarner posted a quality start but took the loss. There are also six other quality starts where he received a no-decision. That explains why he is only 14-9 with a 2.66 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 231 strikeouts in 206.1 innings. Bumgarner will look to turnaround his fortune in his next start Monday against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

Bumgarner allowed four runs on six hits, struck out nine and walked one over six innings in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

He yielded just over a base runner per frame, but a pair of two-run homers prevent Bumgarner from throwing his third straight quality start. This was the fourth time since Aug. 2 that the left-hander has allowed at least four runs in a game. Overall, he is 14-8 with a 2.61 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 226 strikeouts in 199.2 innings. His next start will be Wednesday against San Diego.

Bumgarner (14-8) was in vintage form in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Cubs, recording 10 strikeouts while allowing two earned runs on five hits over six innings.

EDGE Analysis

He's undeniably had some hiccups this season, but Saturday was a performance befitting the caliber of pitcher that Bumgarner is. He recorded 14 swinging strikes and first-pitch strikes on 19 of the 25 batters he faced. The only runs he gave up were rather innocuous, coming on a Jake Arrieta infield single and Javier Baez foul sacrifice fly. It was the southpaw's first double-digit strikeout performance since July 10 versus the D-backs, as well as his second straight quality start. He'll look to keep it going when he faces Arizona on Friday night.

Bumgarner allowed three runs with five strikeouts and two walks across seven innings Sunday versus Atlanta, earning his 13th win of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner cruised after allowing a sacrifice fly in the first inning, but a two-run homer by Freddie Freeman in the sixth compromised his overall stat line a bit. On a positive note, the left-hander surpassed five innings pitched after lasting just five frames in each of his last two outings, and his ERA sits at an impressive 2.49 for the season. Bumgarner is firmly in the National League Cy Young race, along with fellow frontrunners Max Scherzer and Jose Fernandez, and although he ranks third among the trio in strikeouts, he leads in ERA and innings pitched. He will look to further make his case Saturday against the Cubs.
