If the San Francisco Giants are going to part with left-handed ace ​Madison Bumgarner, the Milwaukee Brewers ​appear to be the favorites to land the World Series legend at the moment.​


However, according to Jon Morosi of MLB.com, the Brewers would have to pay a hefty price, as the Giants are reportedly asking for one of Milwaukee's young starters -- Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff or Freddy Peralta.

​​Never say never, but it's hard to imagine the Brewers trading any of them, as all three are expected to be key parts of their rotation in 2019, which already lacks depth. Moving one of them for one year of Bumgarner might not be the way to go.

There's no doubt that Bumgarner would be a difference-maker for the Brewers, which are looking to get back to the NLCS once again in 2019. However, the 29-year-old has only one year left of club control and he's missed some time over the last couple years.


In 21 starts last season, Bumgarner posted a 6-7 record with a 3.26 ERA and had 109 strikeouts over 129.2 innings.
