LEADING OFF: Bumgarner back on mound; Bieber-Keuchel matchup

Arizona LHP Madison Bumgarner starts against Colorado in his first appearance since pitching a seven-inning no-hitter against Atlanta last Sunday, a game that Major League Baseball does not consider to be a no-hitter. Cleveland RHP Shane Bieber, the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner, starts in Chicago against White Sox LHP Dallas Keuchel, the 2015 AL Cy Young winner for Houston. New York Yankees right-hander RHP Gerrit Cole, who is 5-1 with a 2.23 ERA against Detroit, starts Friday’s homestand opener against Detroit, the first team not from the East to play at Yankee Stadium since 2019.
