Eventually, the Arizona Diamondbacks classified Madison Bumgarner (34) out of power.
On the 21st (Korean time), MLB.com, the official website of the Major League Baseball (MLB), reported that Bumgarner had been designated for assignment (DFA) by the Arizona team, citing sources. According to ESPN, an American sports channel, Bumgarner wore an Arizona uniform with a five-year contract worth 85 million dollars (112.4 billion won) ahead of the 2020 season.
There are more than 34 million dollars (45 billion won) of contracts remaining, including 20.4 million dollars (27 billion won) left this season and 14 million dollars (18.5 billion won) next year, but Arizona chose to give up the player rights. Clubs that want to sign him after clearing the waiver need only pay 720,000 dollars (950 million won), the lowest annual salary in the big leagues. The remaining contract size is so large that the possibility of a trade is not high.
Bumgarner has started 4 games this season and recorded 3 losses with a 10.26 ERA. He pitched poorly, averaging 8.1 walks per 9 innings. He became the losing pitcher with 7 hits, 4 walks and 7 runs in 3 innings against the St. Louis Cardinals on the 20th, the previous appearance. He even got into an unnecessary verbal battle with the opposing catcher during the game.
It wasn’t just this year’s problem.먹튀검증 Bumgarner was a rival of Clayton Kershaw (LA Dodgers) during his time with the San Francisco Giants and a left-handed ace representing the big leagues. He has been voted in the National League Sai video poll for four consecutive years since 2013. His career record with San Francisco was 119-92 with a 3.13 ERA. However, he took the plunge in an Arizona uniform. After the transfer, his performance fell short of expectations with a career record of 14 wins and 32 losses with an average ERA of 5.23. Arizona judged that his rebound was not great, and ended his relationship.
