More musings from Jayson Stark at The Athletic:

Now that the universal DH is coming to a National League park near you, guess how many players even started 110 games as a DH last year. Incredibly, that would be just two: Khris Davis (123 for the A’s) and Nelson Cruz (114 for the Twins). But this magic number could have been 130 – because, for the first time in any full season in history, nobody in baseball started 130 games as any team’s DH. How ironic that that happened in the same year Edgar Martinez and Harold Baines got elected to the Hall of Fame.

Not to suggest that the arrival of the DH to the National League isn’t quite as big a deal as it may have seemed, but … hey, whatever happened to David Ortiz anyway? Do they even make DHs like that anymore? (Correct answer: Hell no.)

“As soon as this was announced,” said one AL exec, “you saw all these sites posting pieces like: ‘Who’s this NL team’s most likely DH?’ And I’m thinking, it doesn’t matter, because there’s almost no such thing as a primary DH anymore. That’s the rarity.”

... But beyond the sheer numbers, this position has evolved in other ways, too. Did you know that only seven of the AL’s 15 teams started the same primary DH in even half of their games last year? And naturally, no team zagged in the other direction more than the Rays. Their revolving DH door was spinning so fast that seven different players started at least 10 games at DH.

“That’s just how most teams look like they’re going to use the DH going forward,” said an AL exec. “It’s a high-performance rest day.”

So while the universal DH looks like it will be a big help to the roster construction of teams like the Mets, Reds, Dodgers and Phillies, there’s a decent chance that 100 NL players will rotate through that DH spot this year, even in a nine-week season. So here’s my only request: Can one of them please be Madison Bumgarner?

Madison Bumgarner (P) AZ - Jul. 04

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=742414

Bumgarner was able to participate in the Diamondbacks' workouts Saturday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bumgarner wasn't seen at practice Friday, but that was evidently simply due to the fact that his COVID-19 test results hadn't been processed yet. Now that he's been cleared to play, expect him to serve as the Diamondbacks' Opening Day starter.

Madison Bumgarner (P) AZ - Jul. 03

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=742325

Bumgarner didn't work out with the Diamondbacks on Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bumgarner is still waiting for clearance from the league's COVID-19 test protocols, so he was part of a group of players that wasn't present for Friday's workouts. The results from his test are still unknown, and it's unclear when the southpaw will join the team.

Tyler Kepner in the Times yesterday: 

Bumgarner rebounded last season after missing parts of 2017, when he hurt his shoulder in a dirt-bike accident, and 2018, when he broke his hand on a comebacker. He ranked second to Washington’s Stephen Strasburg in innings among N.L. pitchers, with 207⅔, and while his earned run average was a career-high 3.90, his underlying numbers were strong.

The Handbook's ERC agrees with that: 3.38.

The Forecaster's xERA disagrees: 4.16.

Here's the full article, but don't read it expecting to learn more about Bum's winter on the rodeo circuit.

Sweet story, partly because he isn't bareback bronc riding.

His performance away from AT&T Park the last 2 years leaves a lot to be desired.

How did it turn out for Grienke?

This season he'll get to pitch a number of games against the SFG offense (29th in OPS+ last year) ?

Am I the only one scared to death of how him going to Arizona may turn out?

Is there any metric any can show that can put a positive light on it?
