There’s no other way to put it: It’s been a putrid season for the San Francisco Giants so far this season.
They’re 27-51 and are sitting in last place in the National League West. They even have a worse record than their counterparts across the bay, the Oakland Athletics, who are 34-42.
But for Giants fans in Sacramento, there’s some silver lining to the season.
He will start against the Fresno Grizzlies at Raley Field on Friday.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy told the Mercury News that he didn’t have a complete schedule for Bumgarner’s rehab starts. However, he said that there’s a good chance Bumgarner’s next start would be on July 5 for Single-A San Jose.
Before his injury, Bumgarner was 0-3 with a 3.00 ERA, according to ESPN.com.
