MLB Rumors: Phillies, Yankees Scouted Giants’ Madison Bumgarner Recently

Some interested teams reportedly got a good look at Madison Bumgarner recently.

The Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees were among “several clubs” who scouted the Giants ace in his second-to-last start last Saturday, USA Today’s Bob Nightengale reported Wednesday.  Bumgarner pitched 6 1/3 innings that day, striking out six and allowing four earned runs in a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Phillies and Yankees both reportedly feel they could use a top-line starter, although both teams entered Friday in the top 10 in earned run average. Still, both teams are on Bumgarner’s no-trade list.

What might be a bigger deal to the Giants, however, is the quality of both team’s prospects.

Rather painful to watch in multiple regards- the dominant team in one of the largest and wealthiest metropolitan areas in the United States should never be in this position….
