The MLB trade market officially got a lot hotter on Friday.


According to reports, the San Francisco Giants are planning on making longtime ace Madison Bumgarner available for trade, which is bound to shake up the offseason.

​​The 29-year-old is coming off a solid 2018 season where he went 6-7 with an excellent 3.26 ERA and has posted four seasons in the last six years with an ERA under 3.00. 


Although the four-time All Star has been limited the past two years because of various injuries, he's still an enticing option for a team looking to bolster their starting rotation for a title run, especially with his team-friendly salary for the 2019 season.


Some are already speculating that the ​New York Yankees may be interested in his services.

Bumgarner has previously stated that he would like to ​spend his career in San Francisco, but in the wake of back-to-back losing seasons and the hiring of Farhan Zaidi as the team's new president of baseball operations, the Giants are primed for a roster shakeup.


The Yankees seem like a good trade partner considering their wealth of prospects and the fact that the Giants' farm system has just two prospects in the top 100. 


Dealing Bumgarner is the right call for this team, as he has just one year left on his deal and will prove to be expensive once he hits the market.
