2014 World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner has been assigned a DFA by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
On the 21st (Korean time), the US’MLB.com토토사이트’ said, “Arizona assigned the name a day after Bumgarner recorded 7 runs (7 earned) in 3 innings against the St. Louis Cardinals on the 20th. 5 years, 85 million dollars (approximately) 112.4 billion won) It has only been three seasons since the contract was signed,” he said. “Arizona called up left-hander Anthony Misiewitz to fill the vacancy of Bumgarner.”
Bumgarner, who was drafted by the San Francisco Giants with the 10th overall pick in the first round of the 2007 draft, entered the major leagues for the first time in the 2009 season. He went 7-6 in 18 games in 2010 with a 3.00 earned run average (37 earned) in 111 innings and earned a World Series ring for the first time. He won his second championship in the 2012 season.
Bumgarner had one of his best seasons in 2014. He went 18-10 in 33 games, gave up 81 runs (72 earned) in 217⅓ innings, and had an earned run average of 2.98. In the postseason National League Championship Series, he was selected as the MVP with 2 games, 1 win, 15⅔ innings, 3 runs (3 ERA) and an average ERA of 1.72. In the World Series, he led San Francisco to the World Series with an average ERA of 0.43, 2 wins, 1 save, 21 innings, and 1 run (1 earned run) in 3 games (2 starts). The World Series MVP was also Bumgarner’s.
Bumgarner, who played in San Francisco until the 2019 season, moved to Arizona ahead of the 2020 season. He signed his five-year, $85 million contract. But in Arizona, Bumgarner became a different player.
The 2020 season, which was shortened in the aftermath of Corona 19, finished with 9 games, 1 win, 4 losses, 41⅔ innings, 31 runs (30 ERA), and an average ERA of 6.48. He then scored an average ERA of 4.67 in 26 matches in the 2021 season, 7 wins, 10 losses, 146⅓ innings, and 82 runs (76 ERA), and an average ERA of 4.88 in 30 games in the 2022 season, 7 wins, 15 losses, 158⅔ innings, and 97 runs (86 ERA).
And this season, he was sluggish with an average ERA of 10.26 in 4 games, 3 losses, 16⅔ innings, and 20 runs (19 earned runs). “It’s not very good. It’s frustrating. I’m trying to throw better,” Bumgarner said after allowing seven runs (seven earned) in three innings against St. Louis on the 20th. However, Arizona chose to part ways with Bumgarner.
‘MLB.com’ said, “Bumgarner complained of arm fatigue after the Los Angeles Dodgers match. The MRI scan showed no problems. After that, Bumgarner played in three more games, but it did not improve. Arizona paid him $34 million. I have to pay more than 45 billion won, but I decided to end the relationship.”
