According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Giants are at least willing to listen to offers on star southpaw Madison Bumgarner.
Advice: As the winter meetings begin, the Giants aren't anywhere close to trading Bumgarner away, but they are at least willing to listen to see if anything piques their interest. The Phillies, Brewers, Yankees and Braves are among the teams that have expressed interest thus far.
According to Jon Morosi of MLB.com, the Phillies have spoken to the Giants about Madison Bumgarner.
Advice: The Phillies were out-bid by the Nationals for Patrick Corbin and might now have to look to the trade market to acquire a left-handed co-ace for Aaron Nola. Fancred's Jon Heyman was told by a Giants source last week that Bumgarner isn't "going anywhere" this winter, but perhaps the Phillies can put together a package that would sway the new front office in San Francisco. Bumgarner, 29, registered a 3.26 ERA and 109 strikeouts over 129 2/3 innings in 2018 after missing the first two months of the season with a fractured pinkie.
Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports was told by a Giants source that he doesn't see Madison Bumgarner "going anywhere."
Advice: The Giants are in a tough spot with Bumgarner. He's in the final year of his contract for a team that's unlikely to contend. However, "MadBum" is also a franchise icon and the Giants probably wouldn't get an overwhelming package for him since he's not the pitcher he once was. The Phillies and Brewers reportedly are two of the clubs that have had preliminary talks with the Giants about Bumgarner.
