San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. 1B Brandon Belt (concussion) was placed on the 7-day disabled list. 3B Adam Duvall and RP George Kontos were recalled from Triple-A Fresno. The team announced P Yusmeiro Petit will start in place of Cain Tuesday, July 22.
Fantasy Tip: Petit has some NL-only value as he pitched well in his spot starts recently. Cain could only miss a couple of weeks if tests have revealed only inflammation.

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.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (hip) will have his scheduled turn in the rotation skipped Friday, May 16, due to a hip strain. Manager Bruce Bochy said the injury is mild, and Hudson will not go on the disabled list. SP Yusmeiro Petit will start in his place.
Fantasy Tip: At Hudson's age, this is an injury that could easily affect his next handful of starts. Keep that in mind.

San Francisco Giants SP Yusmeiro Petit will start Monday, May 5, in place of SP Matt Cain (finger).

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.

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.

San Francisco Giants SP David Huff (shoulder) worked one inning in his Cactus League spring debut Monday, March 10 against the Chicago Cubs.

Huff is competing against Ps Kameron Loe and Yusmeiro Petit for the team's long-relief role.
