Giants SP Matt Cain gets beaten by Brewers on Tuesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/29/15) For the third time in five starts this year, Giants starter Matt Cain allowed at least four runs in an outing. On Tuesday, the right-hander allowed four runs on eight hits over six innings of work. He struck out three and did not walk a batter, as his record dropped to 2-2 in the 5-2 loss to the Brewers.
Cain, whose ERA increased to 4.50, gave up two runs in the first and then one each in the third and fourth innings. The Brewers just kept on hitting, as the eight hits match a season-high for Cain.
Since making his season debut on July 2, Cain has been rather inconsistent, posting two strong outings to go along with the three sub-par performances.
Giants SP Matt Cain rebounds with fine effort against Padres
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) Giants right-hander Matt Cain established a pattern of following a bad start with a good one Wednesday in San Diego. Inconsistency has indeed marked his return from a forearm injury.
Cain was fine against the Padres, allowing one run on five hits in six innings to raise his record to 2-1 and lower his ERA to 4.09. He walked one and fanned five.
His lone hiccup was a solo home run by Jedd Gyorko in the second inning. He pitched out of jams in the third and fourth, but yielded no hits thereafter.
Giants SP Matt Cain struggles in no-decision vs. D-Backs on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/18/15) Giants starter Matt Cain struggled in his outing against the Diamondbacks on Friday. The right-hander allowed four runs on eight hits over five innings. He struck out five and did not walk a batter, as he was left with a no-decision.
Cain gave up a solo home run to Chris Owings in the fourth inning, with his team already trailing 3-1 at that point.
This was the third start of the season for Cain, who now sports a 5.06 ERA. He has sandwiched one stellar start in between two disappointing outings since returning from a forearm injury.
Giants shuffle rotation, Ryan Vogelsong will head to bullpen
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/16/15) The Giants will shuffle their rotation coming out of the All-Star break, according to CSN Bay Area.
The Giants will go with Matt Cain, Jake Peavy, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Hudson and Chris Heston once they return to the field. This leaves starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong as the odd man out in the rotation, which will push him into the bullpen.
Vogelsong (6-6) has a 4.23 ERA with 70 strikeouts and 42 walks in 95 2/3 innings this season.
Giants set rotation for weekend series in Arizona
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(7/16/15) The Giants have announced their rotation plans for the first series coming out of the All-Star break. Matt Cain will start on Friday against the Diamondbacks in Arizona. Then Jake Peavy will go on Saturday, with 2015 All-Star Madison Bumgarner wrapping up the series on Sunday.
|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.
