Giants pitcher Matt Cain throws simulated inning on Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain was able to throw a simulated inning on Tuesday, throwing 25 pitches, according to the Mercury News. Cain was able to throw his array pitches from both the windup and the stretch against Joaquin Arias, Andrew Susac and Justin Maxwell.
Cain is expected to throw again when the team returns home and could be gearing up for a rehab assignment if all goes well after his next session.
Cain, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a forearm injury, is yet to throw this season after posting a 2-7 mark with a 4.18 ERA in 90 1/3 innings of work.
Giants SP Matt Cain may face live hitters Tuesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Friday that he was encouraged with Matt Cain's latest mound session and if Cain does not suffer any setbacks, he will face live hitters Tuesday, reports AndrewBaggarly.com.
Cain is attempting to comeback from a flexor-tendon strain near his right elbow and he is expected back after the All-Star break.
Giants' Jake Peavy, Matt Cain complete 'pen sessions on Tuesday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Giants pitchers Jake Peavy and Matt Cain threw bullpen sessions on Tuesday, manager Bruce Bochy told reporters, per the team's official website.
Bochy added that Cain will throw more breaking pitches on flat ground moving forward. Cain, who is working his way back from a flexor-tendon strain near his right elbow, could return after the All-Star break.
Peavy has been sidelined since April 17 with a back injury, and was able to face live hitters on Saturday without any reported issues.
Giants pitcher Matt Cain could return after All-Star break
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain threw 30 pitches off a bullpen mound Friday, and is scheduled for another session on Tuesday. Although the Giants aren't providing a timetable for his return, Cain has yet to face live hitters and might not be activated until July, per the San Francisco Chronicle.
"I'd love to say before the All-Star break, but I don't know," Cain said. "We'll see how that goes. I think that could be achievable. It might not. It's just something I thought of, sitting down looking at it on paper with (trainer Dave Groeschner). It might be just after the break. I can't really say."
Cain has not pitched in a big-league game since July. He is working his way back from a flexor-tendon strain near his right elbow, which led to offseason surgery to clean up bone chips in his elbow.
Giants' Matt Cain says he is still feeling discomfort in elbow
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/15/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain threw off of a mound again on Friday, but he says he still has discomfort in his elbow. Though, the right-hander did say the pain was much less than his previous session.
Cain has been on the disabled list all season due to a forearm injury and hasn't thrown a big-league pitch since July 9. There is still no timetable for Cain's return to the club.
|2014 Summary: Matt Cain followed up a disappointing 2013 season with a campaign that was both subpar and injury-plagued. He dealt with a cut finger and a hamstring injury before succumbing to season-ending surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow. Cain had trouble commanding his changeup, and that contributed to an unusually high walk rate (3.2 BB/9) and opponents slugging a career-high .415 against him. Those struggles were reflected in a 2-7 record and 4.18 ERA.|
Playing time status: Cain's recovery from his elbow surgery was complicated by ankle surgery that he underwent in late September. He should be ready for opening day, and if he can remain healthy, Cain should be a mainstay in the Giants' rotation.
2015 Outlook: With two seasons of declining control and a pair of surgeries to overcome, Cain enters this season with a great deal of risk. He's just 30 and received Cy Young consideration as recently as 2012. Cain's stock could be low enough for him to slide to the middle rounds, and there is still the potential for him to be a top 30 starter. He shouldn't be drafted as such, but he could provide a nice payoff.
