There will be a Giants reunion in the desert to start off the next decade. Forever Giants Madison Bumgarner and Stephen Vogt are staying in the NL West with the Arizona Diamondbacks

Bumgarner reportedly agreed to a five-year, $85 million contract with the D-backs on Sunday. Vogt signed a one-year contract with Arizona on Nov. 26. 

And Vogt, who caught Bumgarner in four games last season, told the Associated Press' Janie McCauley that he couldn't be happier to play with the veteran left-hander once again.

Vogt was behind the dish for 24 of Bumgarner's 207 2/3 innings pitched last season, and could be for many more next year in Arizona. The two will return to San Francisco to face the Giants at Oracle Park for the first time from April 6-9. 

Bumgarner is reuniting with another former teammate, too. Fellow starting pitcher Mike Leake was with the Giants for two months in 2015, when he was acquired from the Reds at the MLB trade deadline.
