SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - San Francisco Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner is hurt for the second straight year, breaking a bone in his pitching hand when hit by a line drive off the bat of Kansas City's Whit Merrifield during a spring training game on Friday. The Giants are already expected to have right-hander Jeff Samardzija on the disabled list to begin the season, after an MRI on Thursday revealed a strained pectoral muscle. He is scheduled to have surgery on his hand Saturday to insert pins that will be removed in four to six weeks. A more specific recovery timetable is not yet available but Bumgarner is likely to be sidelined for a significant portion of the season's first half.

This is about the worst news the Giants could get.

The Spring Training start was to be Bumgarner's last before facing Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Opening Day. During his tumultuous run with the Giants past year, he missed almost three months on the disabled list after spraining his shoulder and bruising his ribs in a dirt bike accident.
