Giants' Matt Cain: Fires five scoreless inning in farewell
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain pitched five scoreless innings with four strikeouts during Saturday's loss to San Diego. He didn't factor into the decision.

Cain announced his retirement earlier this week, and he left Saturday's outing in position to take the win. Unfortunately, the bullpen blew the lead and cost Cain and San Francisco the victory. The 32-year-old veteran was a fantasy stalwart from 2007 through 2012 with a 3.18 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 7.4 K/9 over 1,299.2 innings and 197 starts. While he struggled over the final years of his career, Cain was still a three-time All-Star and won two World Series titles.

Giants' Matt Cain: Will retire following Saturday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain announced that he will retire following his last start of the 2017 season, which will come against the Padres on Saturday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Cain said that he made the decision over the last week, and reiterated his feelings Wednesday by saying that he can't see himself playing outside of San Francisco, and that he believes Saturday will be his last time in a Giants uniform. Although this doesn't completely close the door on Cain's career, he seems fairly adamant about moving on at this point in time, even holding a meeting with his teammates to discuss the decision. Over the course of this season, the three-time All-Star has posted a 5.66 ERA and 1.70 WHIP during 119.1 innings of work, with 22 of his 26 appearances coming as a starter.

Giants' Matt Cain: Will start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain has been named the starting pitcher for Saturday's game against the Padres, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Cain will occupy the spot in the starting rotation that became available when Madison Bumgarner was shut down for the remainder of the season Tuesday. He draws a favorable matchup against the Padres, but should still likely be avoided in fantasy matchups as the 32-year-old's floor is much lower than his ceiling is high.

Giants' Matt Cain: Rejoins team Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (personal) has rejoined the Giants and completed a bullpen session Monday, the Associated Press reports.

Cain made his last appearance Aug. 31 before leaving the Giants a few days later to tend to a family matter. Because of the multi-week absence, he'll likely need to get in another bullpen session to condition his arm before being available for games. Manager Bruce Bochy stated that he'd like to have Cain make one appearance out of the bullpen before the season concludes.

Giants' Matt Cain: Away from team with family issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy said Cain will miss the upcoming series against the Rockies while attending to a family matter, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Bochy said he'll likely miss the road trip as well, lining him up to return next week Monday against the Dodgers. Cain should resume a long-relief role out of the Giants' bullpen when he returns.
