According to MLB.com’s Jon Paul Morosi, the San Francisco Giants are listening to offers regarding pitcher Madison Bumgarner. The Milwaukee Brewers, Philadelphia Phillies, and the Atlanta Braves have already inquired about his services.
He is entering the final year of his contract. He is slated to make $12 million in 2019 before becoming a free agent.
According to ESPN.com’s Phillies depth chart, Jake Arrieta is the ace, while Aaron Nola is the No. 2 pitcher. Vince Velasquez is slated as the No. 3 pitcher with Nick Pivetta and Zach Eflin rounding out the rotation.
According to ESPN.com’s Braves depth chart, Mike Foltynewicz is listed as the ace. Anibal Sanchez is listed as the No. 2 pitcher with Julio Teheran as the No. 3 starter. Kevin Gausman and Sean Newcomb round out the rotation.
Brandon Woodruff is the ace of the rotation, according to ESPN’s Brewers depth chart. Jhoulys Chacin is listed as the No. 2 starter and Gio Gonzalez is the No. 3 starter. Wade Miley and Freddy Peralta round out the rotation.
The Phillies seem to be mentioned in with almost every high-profile player this off-season. Earlier Monday, it was reported they were talking to the Arizona Diamondbacks before the deal fell through.
Philadelphia is also considered the front-runner for Bryce Harper. The free agent outfielder is expected to sign the richest deal in MLB history.

He is 10-16 in the past two seasons in 38 starts. He has given up 92 runs (88 earned runs), including 31 home runs, during this time. He also struck out 210 and walked 63.
Bumgarner has not had a 10-win season or more since the 2015 season. He went 15-9 during the 2016 season. From 2011 through 2016, he went a combined 93-70.
