Matt Cain loses again in quality start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/4/14) Giants pitcher Matt Cain tossed the ball well Friday, but got little help in a 2-0 loss.

Cain's losing streak extended to four decisions Friday, but he did his part to end it. Cain limited the Padres to just two runs in 6 1/3 innings, while scattering seven hits. He also walked three batters while striking out six on 106 pitches in the loss.

Cain lowered his ERA to 4.27, though he also fell to 1-7 in the loss. He has not won since May 15, but will look to end that streak Wednesday against the Athletics.  

Bullpen can't make Matt Cain's lead stand up
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/29/14) Giants pitcher Matt Cain was on his way to snapping his three-start losing streak Saturday against the Reds, but the bullpen could not hold on to the lead as the game headed to extras.

Cain turned in his best start in more than a month, as he handed the bullpen a 1-0 lead over seven shutout innings. He allowed six hits and a pair of walks in his seven innings of work, while striking out four batters on 99 pitches as he was forced to settle for a no-decision.

Cain is still just 1-6 on the season, but he did lower his ERA nearly a half run with Saturday's outing. He has a 4.38 ERA heading into his next start, which should come Friday in San Diego.  

Matt Cain continues to plummet in Fantasy rankings
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/14) If you take a look at our Fantasy Baseball rankings, you will see I'm the least bullish on Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain. In fact, I dropped him to the 60th ranked starting pitcher.

I really wasn't high on Cain coming into the season, and he hasn't let down my expectations. Since the start of the 2013 season, Cain is 9-16 with a 4.23 ERA. I think Cain is at that point where Tim Lincecum began his career decline, but at Fantasy owners we still overvalued him in hopes of a bounce back. Lincecum is still useful in Fantasy, but he's not the must-start option of old. 

I actually see Cain making a run at some point because his strand rate right now is 63 percent, which is below his career rate (74.3) and the league average for starters (72.3), per FanGraphs.com. His xFIP is also 4.07, which indicates his ERA should be lower than 4.82.

But when Cain was at the top of his game, his swinging strike rate was above 9.0 percent. This season, it's at 8.5 percent, which was close to last season (8.6). Also, Cain is really getting hurt by home runs again. He posted a 1.1 HR/9 rate in 2013, which was then a career-worst. It's now up to 1.4 HR/9 this season.

Players I moved ahead of Cain in the rankings this week include Bartolo Colon, Jake Arrieta, Alex Wood, Kevin Gausman and Alfredo Simon.

Matt Cain surrenders six runs in third straight loss Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/24/14) Giants pitcher Matt Cain struggled again in Monday's loss, giving up six earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 7 1/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 6-0 defeat against the Padres.

Cain (1-6) has recorded three straight losses while giving up 17 earned runs in 17 1/3 innings over his last three starts. After surrendering three runs in the fourth inning, Cain entered the eighth with a potential quality start in his pocket, but the Padres were able to score three more in the eighth, with all the runs being charged to the starter.

Cain owns a 4.82 ERA and 56:25 K:BB ratio in 71 innings after his recent rough patch. He's scheduled to take on the Reds Saturday.

Matt Cain's struggles become worrisome
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/14) When Matt Cain got off to a slow start this year, I wasn't too concerned. He did the same thing last year, after all, compiling a 5.43 ERA over his first nine starts only to perform like the pitcher you drafted him to be with a 3.38 ERA over his final 21.

But here he is in mid-June still getting blasted every other start. His home run rate has yet to normalize, and he continues to have sudden lapses in control.

As inexplicable collapses go, his isn't quite Justin Verlander's, but it's along the same lines. The Pitch F/X data says he's as good as ever, but the peripherals say it's not just a case of bad luck. Something is wrong -- maybe something subtle, like a mechanical flaw, but something that needs to be corrected for him to get back to pitching like we know he's capable.

Because he appeared to correct it last year, you wouldn't want to sell him short, but the uncertainty is reason enough to downgrade him. He's now outside my top 30 at starting pitcher, behind Sonny Gray, Corey Kluber, Garrett Richards and others who have proven to be more reliable this season.
