Giants want to talk contract extension with Madison Bumgarner


Madison Bumgarner is signed through 2019, but that hasn’t stopped the San Francisco Giants from approaching his representatives about an extension.

Giants general manager Bobby Evans told reporters on Thursday that the team has already reached out to Bumgarner’s representatives to gauge interest in a new contract.

In the sense that Bumgarner is under team control through 2019, with two affordable $12 million team options covering the last two years on his deal, it’s a bit of a surprise. Of course, things have changed a bit since April 2012, when he signed that contract. He’s since established himself as one of the greatest playoff pitchers ever, as well as an elite celebration artist, so the Giants may see fit to reward him properly for what he’s meant to their franchise and lock him up while they have the chance well beyond 2019.
