Giants reportedly mulling trading Madison Bumgarner to Astros

In the weeks leading up to Wednesday’s MLB trade deadline, it appeared that the San Franciso Giants went from sellers to buyers.



The team is currently in the midst of a 25-game stretch that has seen it go 20-5. San Francisco is currently just 2.5 games out of a playoff spot, leading to speculation that Madison Bumgarner and others might not be available.

It’s no secret Houston is looking for an upgrade in the rotation behind Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole. Bumgarner would certainly provide that.

If Houston were to make a move, it’s likely that top prospect Kyle Tucker would be shipped to San Francisco.
