Madison Bumgarner allowed one earned run, six hits and a walk with four strikeouts across five innings to nail down his first win of the season Tuesday against Pittsburgh.
Bumgarner has had a strange and bumpy road this season. Normally his first victory comes in the first or second start of a new campaign, but he dropped his first four decisions and also missed two months due to a shoulder injury. He is starting to pitch like his normal ace-like self, posting a 1-1 record and 3.92 ERA over three outings since returning from the 10-day disabled list. He is likely to continue trending in a positive direction as he builds up his stamina. Jul 26 - 4:29 AM

Madison Bumgarner surrendered four runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

Making his second start since being activated from the disabled list after missing three months of action due to a dirt-biking shoulder injury, Bumgarner struck out five and walked one. He pitched well enough on the whole, but Hunter Renfroe and Cory Spangenberg both cracked two-run homers off the ace, with Spangenberg's seventh-inning shot snapping a 2-2 tie. Bumgarner has allowed five runs on 10 hits while posting a 10/3 K/BB ratio in 13 1/3 frames in his two outings since the All-Star break. He will next take the ball in a home start against the Pirates as he works to shake off any remaining rust from the long layoff.

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) allowed just three earned runs, four hits and two walks over seven innings in a no-decision Saturday in San Diego.

Bumgarner threw 66 of his 102 pitches for strikes while recording five punchouts in his much-anticipated return. He posted an awful 7.02 ERA in four minor-league rehab starts, but he obviously turned up the intensity and was locked in at Petco Park in his return.

Giants activated LHP Madison Bumgarner from the 60-day disabled list.

He'll get the ball Saturday against the Padres. The Giants ace needed nearly three months to recover from a shoulder injury he suffered in an ill-advised dirt-biking accident. Bumgarner logged a disappointing 7.02 ERA during his four-game rehab stint but looked sharp in his last outing, scattering two hits and one run over six standout frames for High-A San Jose. The left-hander allowed two runs over eight innings in a loss to the Padres earlier this year.

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) allowed just one unearned run while striking out eight over six innings Monday in a rehab start with High-A San Jose.

He surrendered just two hits on the night, throwing 86 pitches. Bumgarner really struggled in his previous two rehab outings, but it appears he really took a step forward in this one. He's expected to rejoin the Giants' rotation on Saturday in San Diego.
Jul 10 - 11:41 PM

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) remains on track to rejoin the Giants' rotation on July 15 in San Diego in spite of his struggles during his rehab assignment.

Bumgarner allowed nine runs and four home runs at High-A San Jose on Wednesday in his last outing, which came after he gave up four runs and seven hits across 3 2/3 frames in his previous start. However, manager Bruce Bochy said the lefty told him he "felt great" and "felt really close." Bumgarner is slated to throw around 90 pitches in what is expected to be his final rehab start on Monday. He's been out since mid-April.
Jul 7 - 11:26 AM

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) gave up nine earned runs in four innings Wednesday in a rough rehab start with High-A San Jose.

Bumgarner walked one and surrendered nine hits, including four home runs. He also struggled in a rehab appearance last Friday at Triple-A Sacramento and will need to post better results in his next outing Monday in order to meet his goal of returning to the Giants' starting rotation immediately after the All-Star break. Bumgarner has been on the shelf since mid-April with a complete and partial tear of the two tendons that connect the AC joint in his throwing shoulder.
Jul 6 - 8:56 AM

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) will make a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

Bumgarner is expected to throw five innings and around 75 pitches in Wednesday's outing, with his final rehab start slated for July 10. He was knocked for four runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings his last rehab start at Triple-A. Assuming he does not encounter a setback over the next week, he should be ready to rejoin the Giants after the All-Star break.
Jul 5 - 7:16 PM

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) was hit hard in Friday's minor league rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento, allowing four runs on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings.

The left-hander also walked one and struck out one. Had he dominated in that outing, the Giants may have considered bringing him back next week, but it appears as though he'll need at least one more rehab outing and will likely return just after the All-Star break.
Jul 1 - 8:40 AM

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) will move his rehab assignment up to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

Jun 26 - 8:18 PM

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) tossed three no-hit innings Sunday in his first minor league rehab start with the Giants' Arizona Rookie League team.

Bumgarner, who is coming back from a sprained left AC joint in his shoulder, struck out two and walked one. According to Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports, the southpaw sat in the 88-91 mph range with his fastball. The plan calls for him to return to San Francisco on Monday and throw another bullpen session later in the week before continuing his rehab stint. If all goes well, the Giants' ace should return by the end of July.
Jun 26 - 8:31 AM

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) will make an appearance for the Giants' Arizona Rookie League team on Sunday.

Bumgarner also hit off a tee Sunday, as the left-hander's recovery from a sprained left AC joint continues to progress more quickly than expected.

The ace southpaw figures to be ready to rejoin the Giants' rotation some time around the All-Star Break.
Jun 21 - 6:18 PM

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) next simulated game is scheduled for Wednesday.
