Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) could resume a throwing program on Friday.
It would be the first step in a lengthy rehab process. Bumgarner would begin with some light catch and then slowly build up his throwing progression. Once he's deemed ready for game action, he will need five rehab starts before rejoining the Giants' rotation. This is all assuming he progresses without a setback, which is far from a sure thing when you're coming back from a shoulder injury. Bumgarner won't be back until late July even in a best-case scenario. May 28 - 2:44 PM

The Giants confirmed Friday that Madison Bumgarner is dealing with a Grade 2 shoulder sprain.

The Giants had originally hoped he would be ready to return in six-to-eight weeks, but now there's a much clearer picture. Tentatively, the Giants expect their star southpaw to return around after All-Star break. While the diagnosis hasn't changed, at least there now appears to be a clear timetable for his return to the Giants' rotation and fantasy owners can expect to have him back for the second half of the season, barring any setbacks.

Madison Bumgarner will not require surgery on his injured left shoulder.

That's the initial evaluation anyway, after a round of tests overseen by Dr. Kenneth Akizuki. Bumgarner is hoping to begin rehab activities in 4-5 days but probably won't be ready to resume throwing off a mound for two months. The ace left-hander suffered a strained AC joint and a rib cage bruise last Thursday in a dirt-bike accident.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy doesn't think Madison Bumgarner's injuries will require surgery.

If you’ve read this site at all in the last 24 hours, you’ll know that Bumgarner suffered rib and shoulder injuries in a dirt-bike accident on Thurday. He was wearing a sling when he showed up to the ballpark on Friday and will be evaluated by Dr. Kenneth Akizuki on Monday. The Giants originally gave a timetable of 6-8 weeks for his recovery but there have been rumblings Bumgarner might miss more than two months.
Apr 22 - 8:23 PM

Buster Olney of ESPN reports that there is concern in the Giants' organization that Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) will be sidelined for longer than two months.

The Giants have yet to announce a time frame for his recovery and won't until he's re-evaluated next week, but early estimates were between six and eight weeks. Obviously, the longer his absence extends, the more it hurts the Giants' playoff hopes. Ty Blach will hold down his spot in the rotation until the star southpaw is able to return.
Apr 22 - 8:52 AM

Giants placed LHP Madison Bumgarner on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 19, with bruised ribs and a Grade 1-2 strain of his left shoulder AC joint.

Bumgarner suffered the injuries during a dirk bike accident on Thursday. Seriously. He will be re-evaluated next week, but FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that the left-hander is expected to be sidelined for 6-8 weeks. It's the first time in his career that Bumgarner has been placed on the disabled list. Ty Blach seems likely to take his spot in the Giants' rotation, although Tyler Beede and Chris Stratton are also options.
Apr 21 - 4:42 PM

Madison Bumgarner lost after holding the Royals to one run in six innings on Wednesday.

Bumgarner is now 0-3, even though he has a 3.00 ERA and an even more impressive 1.518 OPS. Of course, he didn't get to hit in this one in Kansas City. Maybe he should have... the Giants had just four hits in the shutout loss.
Apr 19 - 11:00 PM

Madison Bumgarner fanned eight while allowing three runs over six innings in Thursday’s 3-1 loss to the Rockies.

Bumgarner was not quite at his sharpest in this one. He walked one and scattered six hits over his six innings of work. Trevor Story rocked a long two-run home run off the ace in the fourth inning and Mark Reynolds later dunked in an RBI single in the sixth to polish off the scoring on MadBum’s line. He will bring a 3.43 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 24/3 K/BB ratio across 21 innings (three starts) into his next scheduled outing, a road showdown with the Royals.
Apr 14 - 5:11 AM

Madison Bumgarner allowed two runs on six hits over an eight-inning complete game loss to the Padres on Saturday.

Bumgarner stumbled early, allowing RBI doubles to Hunter Renfroe and Manuel Margot in the first two innings, but he got it straightened out and went the distance. He gave up six hits and walked two while striking out five in total. Bumgarner has been pretty good in each of his first two starts but is 0-1 to show for it. He'll keep looking for his first victory of the year Thursday against the Rockies.
Apr 8 - 11:33 PM

Madison Bumgarner homered twice and struck out 11 batters in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Bumgarner went deep off Zack Greinke in the top of the fifth and slugged a no-doubter off Andrew Chafin in the seventh, becoming the first pitcher in MLB history to homer twice on Opening Day. The big lefty also fared quite well on the mound, carrying a perfect game into the Diamondbacks' three-run sixth inning. Arizona won it with a two-out rally against new Giants closer Mark Melancon in the ninth. Bumgarner will take on the Padres at Petco Park in his second start of the 2017 season.
Apr 2 - 7:41 PM

Madison Bumgarner yielded two runs over seven innings Monday in a 14-2 victory over the Reds in Cactus League play.

Bumgarner gave up a sacrifice fly and a solo homer in the fifth inning, but otherwise he was on point. The Giants’ ace struck out nine and walked none and also went 1-for-2 with a single and a walk at the plate. Like pretty much everyone, he’s ready for the real games to begin
Mar 27 - 6:57 PM

Madison Bumgarner went two scoreless innings in his Cactus League start Tuesday versus the Padres.

The short outing was by design with spring training running longer than normal this year. Bumgarner got in some extra work in the bullpen afterward and should be 100 percent for the opening of the 2017 regular season. He struck out three of the eight batters he faced on Tuesday.
Mar 21 - 7:13 PM

Madison Bumgarner let up just one hit over six dominant innings Wednesday in the Giants’ Cactus League win over the Angels.

He fanned three and walked one. NL teams are allowed to use the DH in spring training but Bumgarner batted for himself, striking out in both of his plate appearances. The former World Series hero and perennial Cy Young contender made quick work of the Angels, allowing just two base runners over six near-perfect frames. Wednesday’s outing lowered Bumgarner’s spring ERA to 2.81. Come draft day, he’ll be one the first pitchers off the board and for good reason. Bumgarner has finished with an ERA under three in each of his last four seasons.
Mar 15 - 8:16 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed one run over three innings Sunday in a Cactus League start against the Royals.

He struck out four in the solid outing -- already his third outing of the spring. Bumgarner has put up some ugly numbers in Cactus League play in recent years, but it's obviously not something to worry about. Baseball's premier workhorse belongs in the top tier of fantasy starters leading into 2017 after posting a 2.74 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 251/54 K/BB ratio in 226 2/3 innings (34 starts) last year.
Mar 5 - 4:27 PM

Madison Bumgarner yielded two earned runs in two innings Tuesday in his Cactus League start against the Padres.

Bumgarner let up an RBI triple and run-scoring sac fly in the bottom of the second, after working an easy 1-2-3 first inning. He has now allowed four earned runs in three innings this spring, but it's obviously nothing to worry about here in late February. Draft him early.
