No discomfort for Giants' Matt Cain in bullpen session


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain, recovering from surgeries on his elbow and ankle, passed his first bullpen test on Friday. 

Cain had surgery to remove bone spurs from his elbow in August. While recovering from that procedure, he had surgery on his ankle the following month. 

Buster Posey caught Cain's bullpen session on Friday and told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle that he could see a difference from last season. Cain grimaced after throwing pitches last season, but he looked "effortless" on Friday. 

"He's obviously not fighting around the bone spurs," Posey told Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area. Posey added that Cain threw a variety of pitches, including fastballs, changeups and curves. 

Cain told Pavlovic that the session felt great. "I felt pretty much full speed," he said. 


Giants C Buster Posey to hit the weights harder this spring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2015) Giants catcher Buster Posey took a little extra time off this winter, and plans to hit the weights harder this spring to get ready for the 2015 season, Comcast SportsNet reports.

"I really tried to take an extra two weeks more than I had after the '10 and '12 World Series, just to mentally and physically try to recoup as much as possible," Posey said. "And I'm gonna take two weeks into spring training to hit the weights a little bit harder than I have in the past, and hopefully that pays off for me throughout the season."

Giants assistant general manager Bobby Evans said in January that the team expects Posey to catch 120 games but added he thinks "there's room for some above that."

"I wouldn't expect anything below that," Evans said. "Part of the challenge for us is we do want to keep Buster healthy, but we also know he's a difference-maker behind the plate in the way he calls a game, in the way he handles our pitching staff."

Posey played 111 games at catcher in 2014, starting 109 times. He saw slightly more games and games started at the positions both in 2012 and 2013. The 2012 NL MVP finished sixth in the MVP voting last season after hitting .311/.364/.490 with 22 home runs and 89 RBI in 547 at-bats.

Giants not entertaining moving 'franchise catcher' Posey to 3B


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
