2019 FANTASY BASEBALL SPRING TRAINING NEWS: MADISON BUMGARNER SHELLED FOR SIX RUNS IN 1 IP

Already under the microscope as a former ace starter who is looking like he is trending downward fast, the San Francisco Giants' Madison Bumgarner was absolutely rocked on his first spring outing Sunday in giving up SIX runs in 1 IP.  While Bumgarner started out good with a 1-2-3 first, he couldn't get anyone out in innings two as he hit a batter and gave up five hits.  Even though Bumgarner has a long history of getting hit hard in spring training, the fact he has been losing velocity for years now and saw his K/9 drop to mediocre levels in 2018 amid more injuries make this very concerning.  Like we have said with Clayton Kershaw, Bumgarner in our view is a major PASS candidate as he looks like yet another Giants former ace who has declined rapidly as he approached 30 like Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain before him.  NO way you want to be dealing with the fallout here.
