San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain tossed five innings of shutout ball, surrendering two hits while striking out one in the season finale Sunday against the Rockies.
With the Giants out of contention, they decided to give Cain a spot start. He pitched well enough, but did not get the win after the bullpen imploded in the ninth. While the shutout performance looked good on paper, he only managed to strike out one batter and had an 11:3 flyball-to-groundball ratio.
Cain finishes the year with a disappointing 5.79 ERA, and it seems he will never regain his dominant form.
San Francisco Giants outfielder Angel Pagan will undergo a procedure on his right knee in the next few days, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.
Pagan has had a history of knee issues, and it appears he'll undergo another procedure to clean up another one. There's no timetable attached to it, but it's highly unlikely it will prevent him from playing at the start of spring training.
Colorado Rockies reliever Rex Brothers pitched a scoreless eighth inning and recorded the win in relief Sunday against the San Francisco Giants .
After an uneven year at Triple-A Albuquerque, Brothers seemed to right the ship when he rejoined the Rockies as a September call-up. In 14 appearances spanning 7 2/3 innings, Brothers gave up no runs on five hits and four walks.
The 27-year-old is probably a long shot to regain the closing role he formerly enjoyed in 2013, but his improvement down the stretch could allow him to claim a prominent bullpen spot in 2016.
San Francisco Giants second baseman Kelby Tomlinson went 2 for 4 Saturday with a double and a solo shot, his second home run of the season.
He's finishing the season with an 8-for-16 surge including four extra-base hits over his last four games. Tomlinson will have a hard time beating out Joe Panik for a starting job in 2016, however.
San Francisco Giants pitcher Jake Peavy won his eighth game of the season Saturday, allowing just one run on four hits and a walk over five innings while striking out two.
The lone run scored on a Ben Paulsen solo shot, but otherwise Peavy was solid in his final start of 2015. When he was healthy he pitched reasonably well, so expect him to be back in the Giants rotation next season.
