Found September 03, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
San Francisco Giants right-handed starting pitcher Matt Cain hit the disabled list for the first time in his career when a line drive connected with his forearm. It looks like his first stint on the DL won't last long, as after yesterday's successful bullpen session manager Bruce Bochy said Cain is on track to rejoin the Giants' rotation Saturday, according to AJ Cassavell of MLB.com. Cain threw 90 pitches during yesterday's session at Petco Park before the Giants took on the San Diego Padres. He reportedly felt fine and is still on track to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday. While the Giants aren't contending this season, Cain took the DL assignment hard. He told reporters that he prides himself in taking the ball every fifth day for San Francisco, something he had done throughout his entire career prior to landing on the shelf with his forearm contusion. It's good that Cain is expected back soon and that the injury won't cause him to miss a more extended stretch. He'll look to end his season strong. While his ERA is over a run above his career total, sitting at 4.43, his WHIP is actually below his career norm, registering at an impressive 1.139.

Maybe even more impressive was the fact that Petit struck out National League MVP candidate Paul Goldschmidt twice, making the Diamondbacks strand a total of four runners on the...

Giants’ Buster Posey exits with hand injury

Catcher is a grueling position, causing players behind the plate to require more time off than most.

Posey suffered the injury when he was hit in the hand while attempting...

Bumgarner solid in Giants' 3-2 loss to Padres

Madison Bumgarner has seen this play out before, so he's not surprised when his San Francisco teammates struggle at the plate. Bumgarner was left with nothing to show despite a solid six-inning performance, as Chris Denorfia hit a go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning to lift the San Diego Padres to a 3-2 victory over the Giants on Tuesday night. The Giants' 24-year...

Giants, Zito stumble against Padres

Barry Zito was on the road and once again, it wasn't very kind to him. Regardless where Zito pitches these days, the results are usually the same: another loss. Ian Kennedy beat an NL West opponent for the first time in 12 starts this season, pitching the San Diego Padres past the San Francisco Giants 4-1 on Monday. Zito (4-11) lost his eighth straight decision. He has won...

Young Giants fan a true Robin Hood

While I'm not necessarily a fan of enabling kids who cry when they don't get what they want, you have to hand it to one young fan who made another little boy's day at Sunday's game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants. As you can see in the video below, Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra was attempting to toss a foul ball to a little boy in...

Giants tattoo Stults in handing Padres 13-5 loss

While the San Francisco Giants' Pablo Sandoval showed his power, some wonder if the San Diego Padres' Eric Stults is running on empty. ''Is he getting tired?'' Padres Manager Bud Black said. ''I don't think so. His stuff still looks good. This time of the year one can go that direction, but he still feels physically good.'' Sandoval&...

Picking At Old Wounds Or Moving On?

I’m not mad that Wilson moved on to the Dodgers!  Really, I’m not! So, really, it’s no big deal that the Giants gave his number away. To the prospect many people think will be the next closer. Who has had some awesome facial hair in the past. No big deal at all.

Kennedy leads Padres over Giants

The San Francisco Giants have two of the last three World Series titles milestones achieved on the strength of their starting pitching. The Padres have far less to dampen the thud of another letdown season. But besides unforeseen identical records they appear to be gaining ground on the Giants in one noteworthy respect. Continuing the fine work the past two days of Andrew Cashner...
