In case you didn't know, Madison Bumgarner was a starting pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks. I heard that the team had cut ties with him after designating him for assignment. I did some research and found mixed information. Some sources say that the d-backs cut Bumgarner because he wasn't pitching well. I somewhat disagree with that being a legitimate reason to cut someone, considering another Diamondback starting pitcher, and my favorite pitcher of all time, Zac Gallen, was not doing well either (this was at the beginning of the season) and they didn't even consider cutting him. Of course, Gallen probably isn't a great example, considering he's younger than Bumgarner and will last longer than him, so he wouldn't be worth cutting.
Back on topic, other than not doing well, why did the diamondbacks cut Madison Bumgarner?
