Bumgarner has been shut down for the remainder of the season, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
There's nothing to report on the injury front, as the Giants are just letting Bumgarner get a head start on the offseason by skipping his final start of the year. Barry Zito will step in Wednesday for what will be his final start for San Francisco. Bumgarner again turned in elite numbers across the board in 2013, compiling a 13-9 record, a 2.77 ERA, a 1.03 WHIP, 199 strikeouts and a .203 BAA.
