Madison Bumgarner competing in rodeos doesn't appear to bother Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen, and it sounds like he won't strictly prohibit the spare-time activity.

After reading about Bumgarner's participation in rodeos, Hazen told reporters, including USA TODAY's Bob Nightengale, he was unaware the southpaw did that as a hobby and believes Bumgarner hasn't appeared in an event since signing a long-term contract with Arizona.

The executive added he doesn't tell his players what they're allowed to do off the field, and he wouldn't disclose any of the details in Bumgarner's contract.
