|Matt Cain one-hits Angels for three innings Wednesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/5/14) Giants pitcher Matt Cain tossed three scoreless innings Wednesday, allowing just one hit while striking out two in his team's 3-2 win over the Angels.
It was a fine spring debut for Cain, who will open the season as the team's No. 2 starter after going 8-10 with a 4.00 ERA and 158:55 K:BB ratio in 184 1/3 innings last year.
|Matt Cain will start day after season opener |

(2/25/14) Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain has been passed over for the opening day start, as manager Bruce Bochy announced Tuesday Madison Bumgarner will start the season opener (March 31) at Arizona. However, Cain will pitch the second game of the series (April 1).
|Matt Cain shut down by Giants |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/28/13) The San Francisco Giants have decided to put an end to Matt Cain's season and have recalled him from making his final start Sunday against San Diego, MLB.com reports. Guillermo Moscoso instead will make that start for the Giants.
Manager Bruce Bochy said that Cain is not dealing with a physical ailment. He finished 8-10 with a 4.00 ERA over 30 starts this season for San Francisco.
"As much as he pitched the last few years, it's time to give him a break," Bochy said of Cain, San Francisco's opening day starter.
Cain has exceeded the 200-inning mark in six consecutive seasons, joining only Hall of Famers Juan Marichal and Gaylord Perry among Giants to accomplish that feat since the franchise moved west in 1958.
|Matt Cain a tough-luck loser |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/25/13) Giants starter Matt Cain turned in an impressive performance but was not backed by enough run support as he took the loss in his penultimate start of the season Tuesday night against the Dodgers. The right-hander surrendered two runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over seven innings of a 2-1 defeat.
Cain has allowed only five earned runs combined over his last four starts (28 innings). He is scheduled to make his next start Sunday at home against San Diego. He gave up two runs over seven innings pitched in his previous meeting against the Padres on June 18.
|Bullpen lets Matt Cain down in loss |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/18/13) Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain tossed seven-plus strong innings Wednesday against the Mets, but was unable to even his record as the Giants' bullpen faltered in a 5-4 loss.
Cain allowed just a single unearned run in 7 2/ innings of work, while scattering six hits. He walked no hitters and struck out six, while throwing 71 of 109 pitches for strikes. He left the game with a 4-0 lead, which the bullpen promptly blew in the loss. Cain settled for a no-decision.
Cain remains 8-9, and is winless in his last four starts, despite lowering his ERA to 4.06, the lowest it has been since his first start. Cain's next start is set for Tuesday against the Dodgers.
|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.
