Madison Bumgarner is coming to the South Bay this week to start two games for the San Jose Giants as part of his rehab for a left shoulder injury he suffered earlier this season.
The 2014 World Series MVP is scheduled to pitch Wednesday in San Jose's Class A California League game against the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes at 7 p.m. then again July 10 against the Modesto Nuts at 7 p.m., according to the San Jose Giants website.
Bumgarner had a brief stint with San Jose early in his professional career, making five starts and posting a 3-1 mark in 2009 before being promoted to San Francisco in September of that year.
Bumgarner was injured while dirt biking during an off-day in Colorado in April. He has missed more than two months of the season and is not expected to rejoin the San Francisco Giants until early August.
