Colorado was not kind to San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner on Thursday. During the team’s off-day in the Centennial State, he decided to partake in a little dirt bike riding.
Needless to say, it did not go well for Bumgarner.
Bumgarner was in an accident. He will now head into uncharted territory. On Friday, the Giants announced that the 27-year-old lefthander will head to the disabled list (10 days) for the first time in his career.
Bumgarner was left with bruised ribs and a Grade 1 or 2 left shoulder AC sprain. He has been released from the hospital, is resting at the team hotel and will be reevaluated next week.
The Colorado Rockies also got the better of Bumgarner, scoring three runs and handing him a loss in San Francisco on April 13.
