Giants | Matt Cain throws abbreviated session

Sat, 24 May 2014 18:20:35 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain (hamstring) stopped throwing in a bullpen session Saturday, May 24, after about 15 pitches. Generally, teams like to see an injured player take a full bullpen of about 60 pitches before giving him the green light. It's uncertain if Cain will be able to take his scheduled turn in the rotation Monday, May 26. Cain, the medical staff and manager Bruce Bochy play to confer.

Fantasy Tip: We'll provide an update as soon as possible. For now, it might be a good idea to plan to be without Cain. It's tough, too, as he was slated to be a two-start pitcher in head-to-head fantasy formats.
