Giants' Madison Bumgarner reveals how he injured his shoulder in dirt bike accident
"I realize this was definitely not the most responsible decision," Madison Bumgarner said
With his left arm on a sling, Bumgarner spoke to reporters Monday for the first time since the accident, though he did not reveal a timetable for his return. He did, however, personally apologize to each of his teammates.
Here is video of Bumgarner talking about the bike accident:
Early estimates peg Bumgarner's absence at anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. Given the nature of the injury -- elbow are easily fixed, relatively speaking, but that is not true with shoulders -- you can be sure San Francisco is going to play it safe with their franchise pitcher.
Bumgarner, 27, had a 3.00 ERA (131 ERA+) with 28 strikeouts in four starts and 27 innings before the injury. He threw at least 200 innings every season since 2011, though obviously that streak will end this year.
