Madison Bumgarner is currently the fifth starter in the San Francisco Giant's rotation, but he hasn't been producing as well as he should be.
The Giants haven't won any of Bumgarner's five starts, and he holds a record of 0-4. Along with that, he's failed to reach the sixth inning three times, and has a sky high ERA of 6.17
There has been talk stemming from these poor performances that Bumgarner needs to be sent back to Triple-A for a while until he can get his command back. Even though statistics show he's hurting the Giants, sending him down would be a horrible decision.
There are many other factors that need to be considered before going through with a knee-jerk reaction to send him down.
