Major League Baseball announced that San Francisco Giants’ pitcher, Madison Bumgarner, will be placed on the disable list with bruised ribs and a left shoulder AC sprain. The injuries didn’t occur on the baseball field though. Bumgarner injured himself in a dirt bike crash in Denver.
Let’s see what Twitter had to say about Bumgarner injuring himself in this way.

The next person to hit a HR off of Madison Bumgarner should pretend to ride a dirt bike around the bases.

Madison Bumgarner has been placed on the DL after a dirt bike accident. It will go down as the most redneck injury in Giants history.

With all the cover up stories out there on how an athlete got injured, the most recent one being Dustin Johnson falling down the stairs before the masters, this one is the most believable because it’s Madison Bumgarner. This is truly the only way Bumgarner could injure himself. We can all joke about it now because he didn’t get hurt too seriously. But with the money that the Giants have invested in him, I’m sure they are not to happy with how he decided to enjoy his day off. Probably might see an adjusted clause in his future contract condoning this type of behavior.
