With his .261 batting average, .525 slugging percentage, and nine RBIs, Bumgarner is one of the best hitting pitchers in the game, alongside Kershaw’s teammate Zack Greinke.

Although, Kershaw is not a terrible hitter, as he hit .225 in 2011 and hit his first and only dinger in 2013 against the Giants.

But lets be real, Bumgarner has hit two grand slams and owns a career .182 batting average with a 1.0 hitting WAR. That’s just insane.
