The wait is over for San Francisco Giants fans after starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner was activated off the 60-day disabled list.

After missing the first nine weeks of the season with a fractured left pinkie finger, Bumgarner is set to make his MLB season debut against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old allowed just one run and struck out 15 batters over 8.3 innings in his two minor league rehabilitation starts.

Bumgarner – a three-time World Series champion and four-time All-Star – made just 17 starts last season, missing the first part of the campaign after a freak dirt bike injury.

But the 2014 World Series MVP and two-time Silver Slugger still has a lifetime 3.01 ERA and shiny 104-76 record.

The Giants (30-30) are third in the National League (NL) West, but just one-and-a-half games behind Arizona for the lead.
