Madison Bumgarner, who was once called the number one pitcher in the major leagues, is finally going to be released.
Arizona said on the 21st (Korean time), 메이저사이트“We transferred Bumgarner to the DFA,” and said, “Instead, we called up left-handed pitcher Anthony Misiewicz from Triple-A.”
Prior to the start of the 2020 season, Bumgarner signed a five-year, $85 million contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
However, after moving to Arizona, Bumgarner recorded an average ERA of 5.23 with 15 wins and 32 losses in 69 games and 363.1 innings.
As a result, Arizona made the decision to release Bumgarner like a knife, although there remains a contract worth $34 million including salary for next year.
Bumgarner began his professional career in 2007 after being drafted by the San Francisco Giants. After that, he made his big league debut in 2009 and achieved 100 wins at the third-youngest age in San Francisco history, while posting an average ERA of 3.42 with 131 wins, 121 losses and 2,060 strikeouts in 354 games in 14 seasons.
Meanwhile, Bumgarner will be moved to the minor leagues or appear on the free agency market if the club he wants to recruit does not show up for a week.
