He is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, a source told FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

He will be re-evaluated sometime next week.

The rest of the Giants were informed of the incident in a closed-door meeting in the Coors Field clubhouse.

"The main thing here is to be grateful he's not hurt worse than he is," Giants backstop Buster Posey told NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic.

Bumgarner suffered the injuries on the team's off day in Denver, and is out of the hospital and recovering at the team's hotel.

This marks the first time Bumgarner has landed on the disabled list in his career.

If fans of the San Francisco Giants weren't already salty about their 6-13 start and the recent loss of ace Madison Bumgarner for six-to-eight weeks thanks to a dirt bike accident, they might not want to turn on the television.
The Giants are apparently showing a Ford truck commercial during broadcasts that features Bumgarner, his day off, and some dirt bikes, according to Tom Helmer of Inside the Seams.
Not the best choice.
