News: Bumgarner will start the Giants' Cactus League opener Tuesday against the A's, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Fittingly, the Giants will begin the Cactus League slate just as they ended the World Series; with their ace on the hill. He figures to only toss a couple innings before calling it a day. Bumgarner tossed 270 innings last season between the regular season and the postseason, which has led to concerns about how he will hold up this season, but he's still easily among the most appealing starting pitching options in the NL.
