The Giants will be seeing plenty of Madison Bumgarner as the longtime ace has officially inked a new five-year deal with NL West neighbor the Arizona Diamondbacks. The team made the announcement, via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

Listen to your team news NOW.

This is slightly jarring.

ESPN's Jeff Passan scopped the specifics on Sunday, reporting the pact would be worht $85 million.

At the time, the D-Backs signaled, or at least strongly hinted at, the move in their own way.

Once the i's had been dotted and the t's had been crossed, the Giant bid adieu to the lefty with a tribute video.

Before Bumgarner, the three-time World Series winner, landed in Arizona, he had also been linked to the Dodgers.
