Giants' Matt Cain: Tough-luck loser Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (3-3) gave up two runs (one earned) on seven hits and a walk over seven innings in Friday's 2-0 loss to the Braves. He struck out three.

The veteran right-hander had the misfortune of going up against an uncharacteristically brilliant Jaime Garcia, who helped ensure that Cain received no run support on the night. Cain was impressive in his own right, throwing 64 of 92 pitches for strikes in what was a performance reminiscent of his younger days. The 32-year-old has actually put together some strong starts this season, but they've been interspersed with a pair of rocky outings where he's given up nine and seven earned runs, respectively. Friday marked his fourth quality start of the season, and seventh where he's given up two earned runs or less. He'll look to get above .500 when he takes on a tough Nationals lineup at home next Wednesday.

Giants' Matt Cain: Gets lit up Sunday by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (3-2) allowed seven runs on nine hits (one homer) while walking three and striking out one over 5.1 innings in Sunday's 8-3 loss to the Cardinals.

Cain is now 0-4 in six regular season starts at Busch Stadium, the home of the Cardinals. The veteran right-hander has pitched well at home with a 3-0 record and 1.19 ERA but has struggled on the road, going 0-2 with an 8.28 ERA. It was a disappointing outing after Cain had allowed only three runs in 11.2 innings over his previous two starts, but his ERA now sits at 4.91 on the year to go with a mediocre 6.2 K/9 over 47.2 frames. This outing is a reminder that Cain is prone to blowup outings like this one from time to time, but he can be a useful streaming option in the right matchups.

Giants' Matt Cain: Continues dominance over Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (3-1) allowed one run on five hits while walking three and striking out five over 6.2 innings in Monday's 8-4 win over the Dodgers.

The veteran right-hander lowered his season ERA to 4.04 with the 112-pitch effort. It was Cain's second win against the Dodgers this year -- he tossed six shutout innings against them for a win back on April 24. He also became the 12th pitcher in franchise history to reach the 2,000-innings mark in the third inning Monday. Aside from a nine-run blowup May 5, Cain has been pretty solid this year. However, his upside remains limited due to his mediocre strikeout rate and recent injury history.

Giants' Matt Cain: Five mediocre frames in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain gave up three runs (two earned) on four hits and a pair of walks over five innings against the Mets on Wednesday.

After he got annihilated for nine runs his last time out, this was certainly better, but Cain certainly wasn't impressive, and he was lifted for a pinch hitter after 78 pitches. Other than that Cinco de Mayo disaster in Cincy, though, the veteran has been surprisingly effective this year. Still, his 4.54 ERA doesn't look good, and his 4.39 FIP and 4.98 xFIP don't offer much hope for improvement.

Giants' Matt Cain: Hit hard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (2-1) was shelled for nine runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out six over 3.1 innings to take the loss Friday against the Reds.

Cain allowed three runs in the first inning and never got on track, leading to his first loss of the season. His poor outing broke a string of four starts in which he allowed one or fewer runs, and he'll continue to be an inconsistent fantasy option with upside, especially when he starts in a pitcher's park. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Mets in New York.
