Our own Evan Petzold reported on July 21 that Cain was placed on the disabled list with right elbow inflammation, retroactive to July 11.
Alex Pavlovic, who covers the Giants for the Mercury News, Bay Area News Group, tweeted the following update on Cain.
Sabean said Cain not improving, likely going for more tests/second opinion. Wouldn't say if he'll pitch this year, that's up to doctors.Cain, in his 10th Major League season, is 2-7 with a 4.18 ERA in 15 starts this season. Last season, Cain pitched under 200 innings for the first time since 2006 and was 8-10 with a 4.00 ERA. Prior to this season, Cain has been very durable, starting at least 30 games in eight consecutive seasons. Cain has a career record of 95-95 with a 3.39 ERA in 281 games.
