Giants activate Matt Cain from the disabled list

1 Comment

Giants starter Matt Cain has been activated from the 15-day disabled list, the club announced on Twitter on Friday. Cain had been out since August 25 due to a strained flexor tendon in his right arm.

Cain will pitch out of the bullpen. He made his season debut on July 2 and made 10 starts, posting a disappointing 6.15 ERA with a 38/17 K/BB ratio in 52 2/3 innings.

During his latest rehab stint, Cain says he identified a mechanical flaw, per John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle. Cain explained, “I got into a bad habit of dropping my elbow and pushing the ball to the plate, instead of getting on top of it and using some leverage to get it down in the strike zone.”
