Madison Bumgarner (finger) threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday.

Bumgarner will face hitters on Tuesday before beginning a rehab assignment on May 26. The plan according to Giants manager Bruce Bochy is for the left-hander to make at least three rehab starts, although Bumgarner said Saturday that he could make 2-4 starts. He's been out all season after suffering a fractured left pinkie finger during spring training.

Madison Bumgarner (finger) is on track to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on May 26.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters Tuesday that the ace left-hander will make a minimum of three minor league rehab starts. Bumgarner has been out all season after suffering a fractured left pinkie finger when he got struck by a comebacker in a Cactus League game in late March. He should be ready to join the Giants' rotation around mid-June, assuming no setbacks.

Madison Bumgarner (finger) threw a successful 20-pitch bullpen session Monday.

It's his first time throwing off a mound since he fractured his left pinkie in late March. Bumgarner threw all fastballs in the bullpen session, but he's been throwing breaking balls in flat-ground sessions and said Monday that "everything feels completely normal now." The lefty is expected to face hitters in about a week and is looking at a late May/early June return if all goes well.

Madison Bumgarner (finger) will throw a bullpen session Monday.

Bumgarner has been throwing on flat ground and "aired it out" on Friday, according to The Athletic's Andrew Baggarly. He's expected to be ready to face hitters about a week after his bullpen session and then start a rehab assignment. Working his way back from a fractured left pinkie, Bumgarner could rejoin the Giants' rotation not long after he's first eligible on May 25 if all goes well.
May 13 - 11:35 AM

Madison Bumgarner (finger) is expected to begin throwing off a mound next week.

Bumgarner was cleared to start a throwing program at the beginning of May and his flat-ground workouts have apparently gone smoothly so far. The left-hander is on track to join the Giants' rotation sometime around early June, assuming no setbacks. He has been on the DL all season with a fractured left pinkie finger.
May 10 - 11:49 AM

Madison Bumgarner (finger) has been cleared to begin a throwing program this weekend.

Bumgarner will start with games of catch before advancing to bullpen sessions, live BP, simulated action, and then eventually a minor league rehab assignment. The ace left-hander probably won't be an option for the Giants' starting rotation before early-to-mid June, even if his throwing program goes completely smoothly. He's been out all season because of a fractured left pinkie finger.
May 1 - 7:46 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that if all goes well, Madison Bumgarner (finger) could resume throwing off a mound in a couple weeks.

Bumgarner has a doctor's visit Tuesday and is hoping to be cleared to resume a throwing program at that time. If mid-May is the best-case scenario for his first mound work since finger surgery, early June would seem to be earliest he could possibly rejoin the Giants' rotation.
Apr 30 - 8:33 PM

Madison Bumgarner (finger) hopes to be cleared to resume a throwing program when he visits the doctor Tuesday.

He'll start with playing catch before progressing to long-toss, bullpen sessions and facing hitters. It's unclear how many rehab starts Bumgarner might need, but the feeling is that he should be ready to return in late when when eligible. The left-hander has been out all season with a fractured left pinkie.
Apr 29 - 4:02 PM

Madison Bumgarner had pins removed from his injured hand.

It's the latest step in Bumgarner's recovery from a broken left pinkie, which he suffered late in spring training. The left-hander is eligible to return from the disabled list on May 25 and manager Bruce Bochy expects he'll be able to do just that. His return would likely bump Derek Holland from the starting rotation.
Apr 19 - 8:12 PM

Giants transferred LHP Madison Bumgarner from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for 25-year-old left-hander Andrew Suarez, who will make his major league debut Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks. Bumgarner is still recovering from a fractured left pinkie and now won't be an option for the Giants' rotation until late May. He's probably going to be sidelined until sometime in June.
Apr 11 - 12:47 PM

Giants placed LHP Madison Bumgarner on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured left pinkie.

Bumgarner suffered the pinkie fracture when he was struck by a comebacker in a Cactus League start last Friday and underwent surgery the very next day. It is expected that he will miss the first 6-8 weeks of the 2018 regular season, so best-case scenario has him back in the Giants' rotation in mid-May. Another frustrating freak injury for one of the game's greatest modern workhorses.
Mar 28 - 8:30 AM

Madison Bumgarner underwent successful surgery to repair his fractured left pinkie finger.

He had three pins inserted into his hand to stabilize the finger. The initial estimate has him sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks, but it there should be more clarity in the coming weeks.
Mar 24 - 2:43 PM

Madison Bumgarner suffered a fractured pinky finger on his left hand after being hit by a comebacker in Friday's Cactus League game.

Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic first reported the bad news. Bumgarner departed the game after being struck on the hand by a sharp line drive off the bat of the Royals' Whit Merrifield. The Giants' ace attempted to field the ball after being hit but was unable to pick it up. He is going to have surgery on Saturday to insert pins into the broken finger. The early estimate is that he'll miss 6-8 weeks of action, but there should be more clarity in the coming days.

Madison Bumgarner left his start against the Orioles on Friday early after being hit by a comebacker in the Cactus League.

Bumgarner generally waves off trainers, but not this time. It isn't clear where the left-hander was hit, but it appears to be near the hand or wrist area. We'll certainly update you once we know more about the severity of the injury.
