SAN FRANCISCO– San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner in rehab is expected back in two weeks. Bumgarner worked in rehab in two contests he’s gone three innings, thrown 33 pitches in three contests. He’s one of the best pitchers of our generation on a team that’s 24 games under .500. Bumgarner’s contract is coming up after this season and for all those reasons he needs to be  back and on the field be healthy and that he’s got his act together. It looks like these rehabs are about to end and he’s ready to come back to the big club and pitch.

In his Major League career obviously he provides the opportunity for a jump start for a team that’s struggling if nothing else. Bumgarner can provide a kick start. Bumgarner’s injury was just one of a lot things that have gone wrong for San Francisco. A lot of players haven’t played well. It didn’t hurt but it didn’t help things when he got hurt. Obviously they need him, he’s obviously someone they looked to.

The Giants and Rockies opened a series on Monday night at AT&T Park both clubs bring a five game loss streak into the contest Morris and Michael cover the preview of this series.
