Bochy: Matt Cain likely to have season-ending surgery
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:49 pm ET) 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.
