Matt Cain undergoes ankle surgery
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/27/14) Giants pitcher Matt Cain underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right ankle Saturday to remove bone spurs, the team announced.
Cain had bone chips removed from his elbow in August, and his rehab period was already expected to extend into November. He'll need two months to recover from Saturday's procedure, so he shouldn't miss much more extra time with the new injury.

|(8/12/14) Giants pitcher Matt Cain had successful surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Matt Cain to have season-ending elbow surgery
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/4/14) The Giants announced Monday starting pitcher Matt Cain will miss the rest of the season due to elbow surgery.
Cain will have surgery to remove bone chips in his elbow next Monday. He will need three months to recover, but he is expected to be ready for spring training.
Bochy: Matt Cain likely to have season-ending surgery
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/1/14) Giants pitcher Matt Cain has gone from hoping to avoid surgery on his right elbow to likely requiring it, as manager Bruce Bochy told the San Francisco Chronicle Friday.
Cain has had surgery recommended to remove bone chips in his elbow by three different doctors, but was initially hoping to avoid surgery. Unfortunately, after throwing from flat ground Friday, Cain appears to have decided to undergo season-ending surgery, according to Bochy. He wanted to see how he felt after throwing before deciding his next step, which will likely require a three-month recovery time, but should be fully healed by the start of next spring training.
If Cain's season is over, he finishes with a 2-7 record and 4.18 ERA in 90 1/3 innings of work.
|Matt Cain might have been one of the biggest Fantasy disappointments last season based on where he was drafted. After coming off what could easily be classified as a career season in 2012, Cain slumped to an 8-10 record and 4.00 ERA last season. He also failed to reach 200 innings for the first time in seven seasons. Though, if you look at Cain's numbers, he was just really bad through the first two months of the season. He had a 5.45 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in his first 12 starts. Cain was pretty solid the rest of the way, tallying a 3.03 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in his final 18 starts. He was plagued by the long ball early, surrendering 13 home runs in his first nine starts, but allowed just 10 home runs over his final 21 starts. You look at Cain's peripherals, there are no real serious outliers. He just had a terrible start to the season. As for his low win total, blame that on the Giants' offense. Cain's run support average per start was 3.4, which was the 11th-lowest average among qualifying starters. Cain is one of those players Fantasy owners might overlook on Draft Day coming off a down season, but don't fall into that trap. He's still a top 20 Fantasy starting pitcher.
