|Matt Cain to have season-ending elbow surgery |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|

|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.
|Bone chips could bring Matt Cain's season to an end |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/1/14) Giants pitcher Matt Cain was able to throw off flat ground Friday after being told he has no ligament damage in his right elbow, but there is renewed concern that he may not be able to pitch again this season.
Cain was cleared to throw after seeing Dr. James Andrews, but has had three different doctors recommend surgery to clear out bone chips in his elbow, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Cain will try to pitch through the issue and put off surgery until the offseason, but is reportedly not optimistic about his chances of pitching again in the majors this season.
|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.
