Cain to meet with elbow specialist

San Francisco Giants right-hander Matt Cain plans to meet with specialist Dr. James Andrews this week to get a second opinion on his injured elbow.

Matt Cain to see Dr. James Andrews

Steve Kroner reporting … The Giants have confirmed that pitcher Matt Cain is headed to Florida to meet with Dr. James Andrews to get a second opinion on his elbow problem. Andrews will examine Cain on Wednesday morning. Former Giants pitcher Shawn Estes first mentioned Cain’s visit with Dr. Andrews on 95.7 FM on Tuesday afternoon. Andrews is renowned for performing Tommy John surgery. Cain, who’s on the disabled list because of bone chips causing elbow inflammation, has not pitched since beating the A’s on July 9. When the Giants acquired Jake Peavy on Saturday, general manager Brian...

Matt Cain to see Dr. James Andrews, and other less depressing notes

Two more roster moves today for a team that makes one every day now, it seems.

Giants ace Matt Cain to visit Tommy John specialist Dr. James Andrews

San Francisco Giants right-hander Matt Cain doesn't think he has anything more serious than bone chips in his elbow, but the team recently acquired Jake Peavy and there has been no move to take Cain off the disabled list.

Matt Cain getting second opinion from Dr. James Andrews

Headlines that include the term "second opinion from Dr. James Andrews" usually presage sad, sad headlines. You knew the news wasn't exactly great with Matt Cain if the Giants were willing to trade two prospects for a rental pitcher like Jake Peavy. But you half-expected or hoped that the news wouldn't slide down the gully into the molten trash swamp this quickly. Shawn Estes told 95.7 the Game that Matt Cain was going to see Dr. James Andrews, and that when you go to Dr. Andrews, he's "not going to look at bone chips." Andrew Baggarly confirmed the report. Before we freak out, note that...

Sabean, Bochy on Peavy trade; Saturday’s lineups

Steve Kroner subbing for Henry Schulman on a busy Saturday at Third and King: With Matt Cain’s availability for the rest of this season in doubt, Giants general manager Brian Sabean felt a “sense of urgency” to make a deal. That’s much of the impetus behind the Giants’ trade for right-hander Jake Peavy from Boston for minor-league pitchers Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree on Saturday. Cain is on the disabled list with an elbow problem. Sabean said that Cain is not progressing and it’s not certain he can pitch again in 2014. Thus, Peavy will start Sunday against the Dodgers....

Matt Cain's lack of improvement prompted Jake Peavy trade

If you're looking for why the Giants had a sense of urgency, this will do. Jake Peavy wasn't in the middle of an especially good season, yet the Giants still felt they had to jump the market and make a deal for him just under a week before the deadline. The reason why is what we feared: Sabean said Cain "going to be out a while." That's why he pushed for Peavy yesterday. — Alex Pavlovic (@AlexPavlovic) July 26, 2014 Pavlovic also reported that Cain is likely to need more tests and a second opinion on his elbow, which has apparently moved from "cranky" to "pissed and taking swings...

Matt Cain injury surely signals an SF Giants push to deal for a starter

The Giants are fortunate to have a guy like Yusmeiro Petit to step in and start for injured pitchers. Petit has been a starter and knows the routine. He is not just a reliever pressed into duty for a few innings. That said, it’s hard to say what the Giants will get when Petit takes the mound at Citizens Bank Park in place of Matt Cain tonight. We know how good Petit can be. He missed a perfect game by one out in September. In his first spot start for Matt Cain this year, he pitched six shutout innings against the Padres. He also had an excellent start in St. [...]
