Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner can absolutely rake, in case you didn’t know. This season, he’s gone yard twice—hitting one off Clayton Kershaw and one at 109 mph off the bat.

Before Sunday’s game against the Cardinals in St. Louis, Bumgarner put on a helmet and took some cuts during batting practice. He launched bomb after bomb, even hitting the upper deck with one.

He told ESPN’s Buster Olney that he wants in on this year’s Home Run Derby.

Madison Bumgarner crushes some HR in St. Louis.

Bumgarner has 13 career homers, the most of any active pitcher. Let’s get him in the derby.
