Bumgarner (1-3) allowed four runs on six hits with seven strikeouts and one walk across six innings in a loss against the Pirates on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

It looked like Bumgarner was headed for an uneventful first inning, but with two outs and nobody on, five straight hitters reached for the Pirates, as they scored four runs. Bumgarner yielded only three baserunners (one on an error) after that, but the damage was already done, and the Giants couldn't muster any offense against the Pirates, who feature the best starter's ERA in the league. Bumgarner is 1-3 with a 3.66 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 32 innings across five starts this season. His next start should be against the Yankees on Friday.

Bumgarner (1-2) secured the win against the Rockies on Saturday by allowing two runs on six hits across seven innings. He struck out seven and issued one walk.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner gave up only a pair of singles through the first five innings, but the Rockies were able to break through for two runs during his final two frames. The veteran lefty came out to start the eighth inning, but was pulled after Chris Iannetta hit a leadoff double. Bumgarner has a 3.12 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 23:4 K:BB through four starts (26 innings), and next lines up to pitch Friday at Pittsburgh.

Bumgarner didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Padres, allowing five runs on four hits and a walk over six innings while striking out three.

EDGE Analysis

Staked to a 5-0 lead after a big fourth inning by the Giants, Bumgarner couldn't make it stick, serving up homers to Fernando Tatis Jr. and Wil Myers in the fifth and sixth as part of the Padres' comeback. The southpaw threw 63 of 93 pitches for strikes, including 18 first-pitch strikes to the 25 batters he faced, but he continues to be hittable when he is in the strike zone -- he's given up four homers in 19 innings through three starts. Bumgarner will take a 3.32 ERA and 16:4 K:BB into his next outing Saturday, at home against the Rockies.

Bumgarner (0-2) allowed five runs in a loss but none were earned on five hits with four strikeouts and two walks across six innings against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants ace had one bad inning, and it was his own error that opened the door for the Dodgers, leading to five unearned runs. Bumgarner did his best to erase the deficit by hitting a two-run homer later in the game, and the Giants rallied in the ninth, but it wasn't enough to tie the score and get Bumgarner off the hook. He's lost each of his first two starts in 2019 but owns a 1.38 ERA.

Bumgarner allowed two runs on five hits while striking out nine in seven innings during a 2-0 loss to the Padres on Opening Day.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants ace looked great, forcing 16 swinging strikes to go with 15 looking strikes on his way to nine punchouts. But he did give up a pair of hits to Wil Myers, including a homer, which led to both runs against him. Unfortunately, there could be a lot of games such as these for Bumgarner in 2019 with the Giants not expected to win much in 2019. While dealing with injuries, Bumgarner has gone 10-16 in the last two seasons combined.

Bumgarner gave up seven runs on 10 hits and a walk over just two innings Friday against the Royals. After the game, pitching coach Curt Young said that there was nothing wrong with Bumgarner physically, Henry Schulman of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner had cruised against the same Royals team in his last outing, throwing 6.2 innings against them while allowing just one run. For the spring he's got a 20:2 K:BB over 20.2 innings, but has given up 19 runs on 35 hits, including three homers.

Bumgarner allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out two over three innings and was saddled with the loss Thursday against Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner was hit with his second loss in spring training, although this isn't overly concerning given how early it is in camp. The 29-year-old lefty surrendered a run in the second and fourth innings on the way to a 5-1 loss.

Bumgarner fired three innings of one-run ball while allowing three hits and striking out five in Friday's exhibition against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner gave up six runs in his first spring outing, so Friday's results were closer to what fantasy owners are expecting from the southpaw this season. The 29-year-old did give up a long ball to his first batter, an aspect of his game that will need to improve after surrendering 1.2 HR/9 over his last two injury-shortened seasons. Bumgarner still managed to pitch his way to a 3.26 ERA in 2018, but a declining velocity and strikeout rate coupled with a career-high 4.03 FIP last season should keep him just out of the top tier of pitchers in this year's drafts.

Bumgarner allowed six runs on five hits while striking out one batter in one-plus innings against the Cubs on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

After retiring the side in order to open the game, Bumgarner allowed six consecutive batters to reach base to start the second before getting the hook. The inning went: double, single, HBP, single, single, single. It's just his first outing of the spring -- the bigger concern is Bumgarner's body of work over his last 34 regular-season starts, since his dirt bike accident (4.15 FIP, 20.6 percent strikeout rate).

Bumgarner has been involved in trade talks this offseason, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner is the Giants' beloved ace with three World Series titles to his name, but his team is firmly in a rebuild, and the lefty has just one year remaining on his contract. The Brewers and Phillies appear to have the inside track to land Bumgarner, with the Braves also checking in but not actively involved in talks. All three situations would represent a downgrade in home park for the veteran hurler, though each would likely provide more opportunities for him to pick up wins.
