Giants left-handed pitcher Madison Bumgarner has officially begun his rehab assignment. On Friday night for Triple-A Sacramento, Bumgarner went 3 and 2/3 innings surrendering seven hits and allowing four runners to cross the plate. He through 62 pitches in his night of work; 41 of those for strikes.
Bumgarner sustained a Grade 1 or 2 AC strain after crashing his dirt bike during an off-day in Colorado. At the time that Bumgarner was placed on the disabled list, San Francisco was 6-11. In Bumgarner’s absence the Giants have tallied a record of 31-40.
In four starts prior to the injury, Bumgarner pitched to the tune of a 3.00 ERA with 28 strikeouts and 4 walks in 27 innings pitched.
Bumgarner is expected to return sometime after the All-Star Break.
