Giants' Matt Cain completes first live batting practice session
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain completed his first live batting practice session Sunday and said it felt normal, reports MLB.com.
"I felt like I was pitching today," he said.
Cain is recovering from elbow and ankle surgery, which ended his 2014 season. He is expected to make his spring debut around March 10 to March 14.
Giants' Matt Cain won't pitch in game until mid-March

|(2/28/15) Giants' starter Matt Cain won't pitch in the team's first spring-training trip through the starting rotation, manager Bruce Bochy told the media on Saturday.
Cain is recovering from surgeries to his elbow and ankle. He'll make his spring debutin the March 10 to March 14 range. Bochy said wasn't a setback in his rehab. He just wants to "slow-play" the pitcher.
Matt Cain expected to pitch first time through spring rotation

|(2/26/15) Giants manager Bruce Bochy said starting pitcher Matt Cain is expected to make his spring debut during the first turn through the rotation. Cain is coming off surgeries to his elbow and ankle.
Giants' Matt Cain looking 'more comfortable' in camp
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain is looking "more comfortable" in camp, according to MLB.com.
Cain is coming off elbow and ankle surgery, and the team is being careful with the pitcher early. Cain is currently taking two days off between bullpen sessions. Most pitchers in camp will throw every other day. Despite that, Cain has already received positive reports. "Matt looked good -- more and more comfortable," manager Bruce Bochy said.
The club believes Cain will be healthy, and in the rotation, by opening day. The 30-year-old posted a 4.18 ERA over 90 1/3 innings last year.
Giants' pitching coach 'really excited' about Matt Cain
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Giants pitcher Matt Cain drew strong reviews after tossing a bullpen session on Friday, according to the Contra Costa Times.
Pitching coach Dave Righetti had nothing but good things to say about the session. "I was really excited," Righetti said. "His timing was terrific, his mechanics are the same. It's just getting the arm a little freer so he gets the feel back and the timing back."
Cain was limited to just 90 1/3 innings last season due to an elbow injury. He underwent season-ending surgery in August. Cain is slightly behind the other pitchers in camp, but is considered to be mostly on schedule.
"This is probably the best my arm strength has felt, shoulder-wise and everything," Cain said Friday, per MLB.com. "Everything just feels really good."
Cain posted a 4.18 ERA before having surgery last year.
|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.
