Aug. 18 5:28 PM PT6:28 PM MT7:28 PM CT8:28 PM ET20:28 ET0:28 GMT8:28 5:28 PM MST7:28 PM EST7:58 PM VEN4:28 UAE (+1)7:28 PM CT-Cain was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a lower back strain. The move comes one day after he allowed six runs over 4 2/3 innings in a 6-5 loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Cain has struggled most of the season at the back end of San Francisco's rotation. He is 4-8 with a 5.81 ERA in 17 starts. The three-time All-Star has already missed 43 games this season during two previous stints on the disabled list because of a strained right hamstring.
Aug. 18 10:38 AM PT11:38 AM MT12:38 PM CT1:38 PM ET13:38 ET17:38 GMT1:38 10:38 AM MST12:38 PM EST1:08 PM VEN21:38 UAE12:38 PM CT-Cain had allowed one hit and faced one batter over the minimum with a 4-0 lead through four innings Wednesday, but he was pulled in the fifth after allowing six runs in an eventual 6-5 defeat.
Analysis: Giants manager Bruce Bochy didn't announce whether he'll use Monday's day off to skip Cain's spot in the rotation for next week's series against the Dodgers, but Cain is aware of the possibility. ''It would be hard for me,'' said Cain, tagged for 11 runs in 8 2/3 innings in his last two starts. "Those are big games in LA and they are the games you look forward to and compete in."
Aug. 13 1:19 PM PT2:19 PM MT3:19 PM CT4:19 PM ET16:19 ET20:19 GMT4:19 1:19 PM MST3:19 PM EST3:49 PM VEN0:19 UAE (+1)3:19 PM CT-Cain had his three-start win streak snapped when he allowed five runs and a season-high 11 hits in four-plus innings in Friday's loss to Baltimore.
Analysis: Cain had been pitching very well prior to Friday's rough outing, tossing 10 scoreless innings over his previous two starts. The veteran remains a hit-or-miss option in all fantasy formats.

Analysis: Cain, who fell to 1-6 with a 5.88 ERA in 12 starts, was coming off his second DL stint for a right hamstring strain. Despite the ugly numbers Wednesday, Cain said, ''It felt like it was coming out (of my hand) fine, just had some errant ones. I had a lot of positives."
May 27 7:24 PM PT8:24 PM MT9:24 PM CT10:24 PM ET22:24 ET2:24 GMT10:24 7:24 PM MST9:24 PM EST9:54 PM VEN6:24 UAE (+1)9:24 PM CT-Cain had a rough return from the disabled list Monday, giving up three runs, five hits and five walks in 3 2/3 innings against Milwaukee.
Analysis: Cain left his outing May 27 at Colorado after 1 2/3 innings and 26 pitches. The oft-injured right-hander struggled early in the season but had been pitching well before landing on the DL, posting a 1.59 ERA over his previous four starts.

Analysis: The Giants said they expect Cain to resume throwing in approximately 10 days, but the news raises another red flag in regards to the right-hander's health. Various arm issues have limited Cain to just 151 innings over the past two seasons.
