Cueto goes to DL, Bumgarner activated


SAN DIEGO – Here’s a little slice of life for the Giants in 2017:

On the day they welcome Madison Bumgarner back to their rotation, they cleared roster space for him by putting Johnny Cueto on the disabled list.

Bumgarner will take the mound Saturday at Petco Park for his first major league start since the April 20 dirt bike accident that resulted in a separated pitching shoulder.

They hope that Cueto’s stint will be much shorter, but there’s no way to be certain. He has hot spots on his index and middle fingers, plus his thumb – issues that began in his final exhibition start and have bothered him off and on all season.
