Madison Bumgarner was placed on the DL yesterday.
He's 0-3 this year, but has only gotten 5 runs of support in his first 4 starts. Anyway, he sustained an injury to his pitching shoulder in a dirt bike accident. Had bruised ribs too.
You're paying a guy millions of bucks and he does this. Sheesh.
In 2002 Giant 2nd baseman Jeff Kent broke his left wrist during spring training doing a "wheelie" on a motorcycle. In 2011, Giant's pitcher Jeremy Affeldt went on the DL, sustaining an injury when trying to catch his kid who jumped off a couch to greet him. After he got off the DL, he sliced his hand while separating frozen hamburgers at a barbecue.
Giants are sort of snake bit in the injury department.
