Giants' Matt Cain: Activated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Giants activated Cain (back) from the disabled list Friday.

Cain will rejoin the Giants on Friday after missing a little over two weeks with a back strain. The veteran Cain has started 308 games over his 12 seasons with the Giants, but he will be used as a bullpen arm moving forward, and will likely be used mainly in long relief.

Giants' Matt Cain: Will pitch out of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (back) will pitch out of the bullpen when he's activated from the disabled list, Chris Haft of MLB.com reports.

Cain was considered a candidate to start Friday's contest against the Cubs but that will instead go to Albert Suarez. Cain has had some encouraging results on the mound this season but surrendered 11 runs over 8.2 innings in his two outings prior to hitting the DL. While the veteran will pitch out of the bullpen to begin with, there's a chance he could rejoin the rotation later in September.

Giants' Matt Cain: Expected back next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (back) is expected to be activated to start Sept. 2 against the Cubs in Chicago, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

A back strain forced Cain to the DL earlier this month but it sounds like he will return next Friday when first eligible. While Cain held the Cubs to one run over six innings in a home start back in May, he has struggled away from home the past two seasons with ERAs north of 6.00 on the road.

Giants' Matt Cain: Lands on DL with back strain
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cain was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday.

The Giants officially listed Cain's injury as a lower back strain Thursday after his shaky outing against Pittsburgh on Wednesday. He was tagged for six earned runs in just 4.2 innings of work to take his eighth loss on the year. He could return as early as early September, but it's unclear who will take Cain's rotation spot in his absence.

Giants' Matt Cain: Hit hard in Friday loss to Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cain allowed five runs on 11 hits and a walk across just four innings during Friday's loss to Baltimore. He struck out seven.

Cain allowed a pair of runs during a second-inning rally and two more on a Mark Trumbo home run in the third, and he was finally chased from the game with an elevated pitch count after Chris Davis launched a solo shot to lead off the fifth. The veteran came into Friday's start on the back of three straight wins and 10 consecutive innings of scoreless ball, but he was unable to contain one of the toughest lineups the American League has to offer. Cain's ERA now sits at a disappointing 5.47 for the season and he will look to get back on track Wednesday versus the Pirates.
