The Arizona Diamondbacks officially announced their free-agent deal with left-hander Madison Bumgarner on Tuesday in a pact that is reported to be for five years and $85 million.

The deal includes $15 million deferred, according to multiple reports.

Bumgarner, 30, has spent his entire 11-year career with the San Francisco Giants, earning four All-Star selections (2013-16) and winning three World Series championships (2010, 2012, 2014). He also was MVP of the National League Championship Series and the World Series in 2014.

“We are very excited to add a pitcher of Madison’s caliber to our rotation,” Diamondbacks executive vice president Mike Hazen said. “He is an established and proven competitor who has excelled under the game’s brightest lights, and we are looking forward to the impact he will have on both the mound and in the clubhouse.”

Bumgarner posted 9-9 record with a 3.90 ERA in 34 starts in 2019, including striking out 203 batters over 207 2/3 innings.

His career totals include a 119-92 record with a 3.13 ERA and 1,794 strikeouts in 289 games (286 starts) since making his September 2009 debut.

The Diamondbacks were 85-77 last season, finishing in second place in the National League West — 21 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers.
