News: Giants manager Bruce Bochy has announced the worst-kept secret in San Francisco's clubhouse - Bumgarner will start Wednesday's wild-card game against Pittsburgh or St. Louis. Impact: Bumgarner was 18-10 with a 2.98 ERA this season. He has a 3-2 record with a 3.79 ERA in six postseason starts, all during San Francisco's runs to the 2010 and 2012 World Series titles.(STATS, 3:10pm)

News: Bumgarner will take the hill for the Giants in Wednesday's NL Wild Card game, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Bumgarner was scratched from his scheduled start Sunday in anticipation of starting in this deciding game. The 25-year-old lefty leads the Giants in wins (18), ERA (2.98) and strikeouts (219), making him the clear-cut choice to start in this one-and-done scenario. He'll face either the Cardinals or the Pirates, depending on how Sunday's games play out.(RotoWire, )

News: Bumgarner will not pitch in his next scheduled start Sunday against the Padres, Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: Bumgarner was originally slated to take the hill for the Sunday matchup, but with the Giants clinching a Wild Card spot Thursday, he'll now be used to pitch in that game. Tim Lincecum would be a potential candidate to take his place Sunday, but the Giants have yet to make an official announcement.(RotoWire, )

News: Bumgarner lost for the first time in eight starts Tuesday, surrendering four runs over 7 1-3 innings in a 4-2 defeat to the Dodgers. Impact: Bumgarner - who hit his fourth home run of the season - had been 5-0 with a 1.88 ERA in his previous seven starts.(STATS, 6:33pm)

News: Bumgarner pitched 7.1 innings, allowing four runs on six hits (three home runs) and no walks, while striking out five in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday. Impact: Bumgarner tried to complete the eighth inning but ran into trouble, allowing another home run to Justin Turner (his second of the game), and he was pulled shortly thereafter. The lefty is still having a fantastic season, as he now boasts a 2.98 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 219:43 K:BB in 217.1 innings. He will likely make his final start of the season against the Padres on Sunday, but there is always the risk of the Giants pushing him back if they are locked into a wild card spot and want to use Bumgarner for the play-in game.(RotoWire, )

News: Bumgarner struck out six and walked two while holding the D-backs to two runs on seven hits over six innings Wednesday. Impact: He did not factor in the decision, as Arizona rookie Andrew Chafin turned in a similarly productive quality start for the D-backs. With the Giants still pushing to secure a playoff spot, Bumgarner has two more turns in the rotation lined up before the end of the regular season. He'll take the ball against the Dodgers on Tuesday before making a second start in the regular season finale on September 28 against the Padres.(RotoWire, )
