MLB Rumors: Madison Bumgarner Agrees To Five-Year Deal With Diamondbacks

First it was Stephen Strasburg, then Gerrit Cole who received long-term lucrative deals on the open market.

Now, it’s Madison Bumgarner’s turn.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, Bumgarner on Sunday agreed to a five-year deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The veteran left-hander spent his first 11 Major League Baseball seasons with the San Francisco Giants.

MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reported Bumgarner’s deal is worth $85 million.

Bumgarner recorded six straight seasons with double-digit wins from 2011-2016 but combined for just 19 victories over his last three.

Arizona finished the 2019 season second in the National League West with an 85-77 record.
