It's hard not to like Bumgarner looking at his vitals. At 6'5", 220 pounds, and left-handed to boot, Bumgarner is a scout's dream. He wowed those scouts all summer long, recording a few 95 readings on radar guns, readings that are nearly unheard of from prep lefties, much less any left-handed pitchers. After his fastball, Bumgarner's secondary pitches need a lot of work. His breaking ball is really loopy at this point in time and lacks bite. His changeup shows promise, but like his curve, needs more work and added consistency. There's no reason to think those pitches won't get better in time, as his size and fastball are plenty good to take a chance on. In addition, his size gives him the natural advantage as he is always throwing from a downward plane despite throwing from a low 3/4 arm angle. That arm slot gives him fairly good movement on his fastball, and it also gives him a fair amount of deception. He likes to move fast, and when his offspeed pitches catch up to his fastball, he could be a special player.
