Madison Bumgarner is a 2007 left hand pitcher from South Caldwell HS, residing in Lenoir, NC. He has a big league type body, with a strong and powerful 6'5" 220 lb. frame. Bumgarner first started being noticed nationally this past spring but he’s been a focal point in western North Carolina for some time before that. He ranked #5 among the PG National Top 85 pitchers and earned himself an invitation to the 2006 Aflac All-American Classic. Frankly, he looks like he can do just about anything he wants to do athletically and probably can. Bumgarner's best talents are on the mound but he could be a high level college, if not professional, hitting prospect if that was his direction. He throws easily from a high 3/4 slot with a low energy delivery that creates leverage to the plate. His fastball is in the 92-95 mph range and he showed the ability to cut it and keep down in the zone. Not simply a power fastball guy, Bumgarner also throws a big sweeping 75 mph power curveball and an 82 mph change-up that has some late fading action. At the plate he showed off a short, powerful swing and the ball jumped off his bat. His hands really work in his swing. Bumgarner has good present day power and potentially plus power at the pro level. No doubt he is near the top of both pro and D1 LHP depth charts. Look for him to be considered for an early round selection next June.
