Giants' Matt Cain: Lasts only 2.1 innings in loss to Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (1-5) gave up five runs over just 2.1 innings in Wednesday's loss to Boston.

The Red Sox tagged Cain for three homers in that short span, two of them by Hanley Ramirez, spoiling the veteran's return from a hamstring strain. Once one of the game's most successful pitchers, Cain has followed up last year's career-worst campaign with an even worse one this season, as he's giving up loads of baserunners and plenty of long balls. At this point, he can't be rolled out in any fantasy format until he shows owners some reason to trust him.

Giants' Matt Cain: Officially activated off disabled list Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cain (hamstring) has been activated from the disabled list and will start against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Cain struggled in his last rehab appearance, giving up nine runs on 10 hits in only four innings. He is slated to start on Wednesday against a tough Red Sox offense on the road. It might be best to take a wait-and-see approach with Cain before putting him back in fantasy lineups.

Giants' Matt Cain: Cleared for Wednesday Start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cain (hamstring) has been cleared to start Wednesday against the Red Sox, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Cain's first rehab start didn't go particularly well (nine earned runs), but he threw a successful bullpen session Sunday and has been medically cleared for a Wednesday start. Considering the matchup against a tough Boston lineup, and his performance the last time he was on the mound, Cain is a risky fantasy play Wednesday, at best.

Giants' Matt Cain: Looking to gain clearance for Wednesday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (hamstring) will throw a bullpen Sunday and the Giants will decide afterward whether he will face the Red Sox on Wednesday, Chris Haft of MLB.com reports.

He was blown up for nine earned runs on 10 hits and three walks in four innings in a rehab start Friday, and that was against High-A competition. It seems the Giants need some convincing before returning Cain to the major league rotation. If they are not pleased with how the 31-year-old looks Sunday, they could send Cain for one additional minor league start.

Giants' Matt Cain: Will make two more rehab starts
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cain (hamstring) will pitch in two more rehab games, including Friday's start for Triple-A Sacramento, freelance writer Andrew Baggarly reports.

Cain was placed on the DL on June 14 after previously spending two weeks on the disabled list for his hamstring. He will make his first rehab start Friday and will likely get another one in sometime next week before rejoining the Giants shortly after the All-Star break ends. During his time on the mound this season, Cain has posted a 5.34 ERA with a 1.52 WHIP over 57.1 innings of work, sporting a 1-5 record.
