Giants' Matt Cain reports no issues after 75-pitch outing
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain, who underwent surgery in August to remove bone chips in his elbow, reported no issues following a 75-pitch outing in a minor-league game on Tuesday, according to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports. Per the report, the Giants are encouraged by his recovery.
Giants' Matt Cain admits to soreness after minor league game
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain admitted that he's felt soreness in his elbow after starts this spring.
Cain is returning to the mound after August surgery to remove bone chips in the elbow. He pitched five innings and 75 pitches in a minor league game on Tuesday.
"There's been a little soreness after some of these starts, and even during some," Cain said, per SFGate.com's Henry Schulman. "It's part of the rehab process. But we haven't had to take any steps back."
The Giants' medical staff confirmed that the soreness is not structural.
Cain threw 50 strikes and 25 balls, striking out four without walking a batter, and reaching 91 MPH with his fastball.
"Today was probably the best it's felt of all the starts," Cain said.
Giants SP Matt Cain pitches well in minor-league outing Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain pitched well in a Triple-A game Thursday, giving up one run on two hits in 3 1/3 innings and striking out six.
Cain threw 51 pitches and his fastball velocity sat in the low 90s in the start, MLB.com reports. He looked great in his spring debut on March 9 but struggled in his previous outing, allowing four earned runs on six hits in 1 2/3 innings. He underwent surgery in August to remove bone chips in his elbow after posting a career-worst 4.18 ERA and 70:32 K:BB ratio in 90 1/3 innings.
Giants' Matt Cain throws two scoreless innings in spring debut
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/9/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain pitched in a game for the first time since July 9 Monday, throwing two perfect innings in his team's game against the Dodgers.
Cain needed just 20 pitches to retire six Dodgers, all members of the team's regular lineup. He was pleased with his performance against the team's division rival, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
"It was even better facing these guys," Cain said. "It was definitely good to get the butterflies, get that extra competitive adrenaline going, which was really nice."
It was Cain's first action since undergoing surgery in August to remove bone chips from his elbow.
Giants pitcher Matt Cain to make spring debut Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/7/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain will make his spring training debut Monday, reports Andrew Baggarly.
Cain, who is still recovering from elbow and ankle injuries that kept him out of action for most of the 2014 season, began throwing to hitters last week and will make his first start since last July.
|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.
