Bumgarner on schedule
Madison Bumgarner’s comeback remains on schedule, even
after a bumpy rehabilitation start. The left-hander gave up 9 runs — and 4 home runs — over the span of 76 pitches for Class A San Jose on Wednesday night. But San Francisco Giants Manager Bruce Bochy seemed unfazed Thursday morning, indicating that the timetable for Bumgarner’s return remains on track. The 2014 World Series MVP will throw once more in San Jose, on July 10, this time with a 90-pitch limit. After that, the plan calls for him to return to the Giants rotation on July 15 in San Diego, the second game after the All-Star break. The onetime workhorse has been on the disabled list since April 21 with bruised ribs and other injuries sustained during a dirt bike accident in Colorado.
