Bum­gar­ner on sched­ule

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

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.
