In a move that has shocked the baseball world as a whole, Madison Bumgarner will be looking for a new home in the near future. Things just haven't worked for the star hurler with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

That's why on Thursday, the team made the tough call to designate him for assignment. Just like that, Bumgarner's time with Arizona will be coming to a close and it's going to cost the team a pretty penny.

In his prime, Bumgarner was one of the best starting hurlers in the game. However, his play has dropped quite a bit, leading to Arizona deciding to move on from him.
