Madison Bumgarner stays put as MLB trade deadline passes

When the MLB trade deadline passed at 1 p.m. PDT Wednesday, former World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner remained a member of the San Francisco Giants.

It had been reported in the weeks leading up to the deadline that the Giants were unlikely to part with the former World Series MVP, and The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal confirmed shortly after 1 p.m. Bumgarner was staying put.

“Bumgarner stays, Wheeler stays, Vázquez stays, sources tell The Athletic,” Rosenthal tweeted at 1:02.

Bumgarner has a 3.74 ERA in 23 starts this season. He has just one year left on his contract, and The Chronicle’s Henry Schulman reported the Giants have not discussed an extension with the pitcher.

The Giants dealt relievers Drew Pomeranz and Mark Melancon in the hours before Wednesday’s deadline.

In return for Pomeranz, the Giants reportedly received Mauricio Dubon, a 25-year-old shortstop who ranked as the 5th-best prospect in the Brewers system prior to the 2019 season, according to Fangraphs.

In return for Melancon, the Giants reportedly received reliever Daniel Winkler and minor-league RHP Tristan Beck.
