Matt Cain has a cyst removed from his arm


This morning Matt Cain was scratched from a throwing session. This afternoon we got some clarity as to why.

The Giants announced that Cain has undergone a procedure to have a cyst removed from his upper right arm. He is expected to resume throwing in approximately 10 days, so he won’t be too terribly far off his season preparation schedule. Whether he makes the rotation out of camp will obviously depend on his progress.

Could’ve been worse.
