Giants Injury Update: Matt Cain is not improving

By on 7/27/2014 07:00:00 AM

The San Francisco Giants are battling the Los Angeles Dodgers for top spot in the National League West. The Dodgers have been more balanced, while the Giants have relied more heavily on a pitching staff that is 6th in the Major Leagues in ERA. It appears someone on the staff will have to pick up the slack for Matt Cain, as he has not been improving since being placed on the disabled list with an elbow injury.

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.
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.
