DENVER — San Francisco Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner was placed on the disabled list for the first time in his big league career Friday after a dirt bike accident sent him to a hospital with bruised ribs and a sprained joint in his pitching shoulder.

The accident occurred Thursday during an off day in Colorado. The Giants said Bumgarner is out of the hospital and resting at the team hotel. He is scheduled to be re-evaluated next week.

“I think the main thing is you have to be grateful he’s not hurt worse than he is,” Giants catcher Buster Posey said. “I don’t know the timetable, I’m not sure anybody does. Just thankful he’s not hurt any worse.”

 Manager Bruce Bochy rejoined the team after missing a two-game series at Kansas City following a heart procedure.
