by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Giants have placed embattled starter Matt Cain on the disabled list with right elbow nerve irritation, CSN Bay Area has reported.

Report: Giants to start Chris Heston over Matt Cain on Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Giants are planning to promote and start Chris Heston rather than Matt Cain on Sunday against St. Louis, according to CSN Bay Area, which explans that the former threw a bullpen session Wednesday to prepare himself for the outing. 

Cain has been a mess most of the year. He allowed six runs in in five innings Tuesday to the Cubs to lower his record to 2-4 and raise his ERA to 6.15.

If he is indeed getting skipped this weekend, it remains to be seen if he is permanently out of the rotation as San Francisco continues to fight for a playoff spot.

Giants SP Matt Cain gives up two home runs in loss Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Giants starter Matt Cain had a rough outing against the Cubs on Tuesday. The veteran right-hander allowed six runs on eight hits over five innings. He walked two and struck out three in the 8-5 loss.

Cain (2-4, 6.15 ERA) was done in by a pair of poor innings. He allowed a three-run home run to Kyle Schwarber in the third inning and followed that up by serving up a two-run shot to Miguel Montero as part of a three-run fourth.

Cain has struggled this season, and the home run ball has been a particular source of his troubles. He has allowed at least one home run in all but two of his 10 starts this season. He has also allowed at least four earned runs in seven of those outings.

Giants push back Mike Leake's start; move up Ryan Vogelsong, Matt Cain
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

The Giants will not activate pitcher Mike Leake on Tuesday and instead will push back his next start, reports CSN Bay Area.

Leake was scheduled to start Tuesday, but the team wants to give him more time to recover from his hamstring injury. As a result, the team will turn to pitchers Ryan Vogelsong on Tuesday and Matt Cain on Wednesday.
