Giants | Matt Cain to DL

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 09:04:08 -0700

The team announced P Yusmeiro Petit will start in place of Cain Tuesday, July 22.

Giants | Matt Cain to miss another start

Fri, 30 May 2014 14:36:18 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (hamstring) will not make his start against the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday, May 31. Instead, SP Yusmeiro Petit will make another spot start. Cain's injury isn't serious, but the team is being cautious.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look like Cain is in any danger of landing on the DL for the second time this year. The Gigantes wanted to make sure that he was 100 percent before throwing him out there. Expect him to make his next start.

San Francisco Giants P Yusmeiro Petit will start in place of injured SP Matt Cain (hamstring) Monday, May 26, against the Chicago Cubs. The team does not plan to place Cain on the disabled list but if he feels like he can pitch before his next scheduled start against the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday, May 31, manager Bruce Bochy will consider starting him earlier and giving the other starters an extra day of rest.

Fantasy Tip: At Hudson's age, this is an injury that could easily affect his next handful of starts. Keep that in mind.

Giants | Matt Cain placed on DL

Sun, 04 May 2014 18:01:17 -0700

The San Francisco Giants have placed SP Matt Cain (finger) on the 15-day disabled list because of a finger injury. The move is retroactive to April 25.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Cain will only miss one start because the belief is he will be able to make his next scheduled start. Yusmeiro Petit will start in Cain's place Monday, May 5, but would only be a desperate option in NL-only leagues.

Giants | Yusmeiro Petit clutch

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 06:40:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants RP Yusmeiro Petit tossed six shutout innings to beat the San Diego Padres Tuesday, April 29, in place on SP Matt Cain (finger).

Fantasy Tip: Petit hadn't pitched in seven days and had an hour to prepare for the start. This could land him another spot start or a rotation spot if someone vacates the rotation.
