Matt Cain underwent another surgical procedure, this time to remove a bone spur in his right ankle, per CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly. Per the Giants’ Twitter, Cain will need two months of recovery time.
Cain had season-ending surgery to remove bone chips in his right elbow on August 12. He is expected to be ready to rejoin the Giants’ rotation when the 2015 season begins.
Cain, 29, was having the worst season of his career, going 2-7 with a 4.18 ERA and a 70/32 K/BB ratio in 90 1/3 innings across 15 starts. This comes a season after finishing with a 4.00 ERA. He is completing the third year of a six-year, $127.5 million contract extension signed in April 2012.
