Analysis: Cain said Friday before the San Francisco Giants played the New York Mets that he's still assessing whether he will be able to pitch this season. But manager Bruce Bochy said odds are Cain will not pitch again in 2014. Cain has not pitched since July 9. He's been checked by Dr. James Andrews, Giants orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki and Mets orthopedist Dr. David Altchek. All three doctors were in agreement: the chips have to come out.

Analysis: Cain snapped a seven-start winless stretch, improving to 2-7 with a 4.18 ERA on the season. While he isn't nearly as dominant as in years past, he can still be useful in most fantasy formats.

May 25 11:11 PM PT12:11 AM MT1:11 AM CT2:11 AM ET2:11 ET6:11 GMT14:11 11:11 PM MST1:11 AM EST1:41 AM VEN10:11 UAE1:11 AM CT-Cain will miss at least one start because of a strained right hamstring.
Analysis: Cain left his previous start against Colorado last Wednesday when he felt a twinge in his hamstring on the last pitch of the third inning.

Analysis: The right-hander didn't surrender a hit before being replaced by Yusmeiro Petit. Cain also struck out three and hit Justin Morneau with a sailing fastball.

Apr. 29 6:21 PM PT7:21 PM MT8:21 PM CT9:21 PM ET21:21 ET1:21 GMT9:21 6:21 PM MST8:21 PM EST8:51 PM VEN5:21 UAE (+1)8:21 PM CT-The San Francisco Giants have reinstated Cain from the 15-day disabled list to start Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Analysis: Of course, Cain had limited his previous two opponents to one earned run over 14 innings but wasn't provided with a single run of support. The Giants scored seven runs for him Wednesday but he didn't receive a decision.
Apr. 19 11:50 AM PT12:50 PM MT1:50 PM CT2:50 PM ET14:50 ET18:50 GMT2:50 11:50 AM MST1:50 PM EST2:20 PM VEN22:50 UAE1:50 PM CT-Cain fell to 0-3 on Friday.
Analysis: The luckless Cain allowed four hits and one unearned run in seven innings while striking out eight and walking two. "It's tough," Cain said. "Any way you lose, it's not fun." His ERA is 2.88 so fantasy owners need to hang in there and hope for better results next week in Colorado for Cain.
Apr. 13 5:11 PM PT6:11 PM MT7:11 PM CT8:11 PM ET20:11 ET0:11 GMT8:11 5:11 PM MST7:11 PM EST7:41 PM VEN4:11 UAE (+1)7:11 PM CT-Cain suffered a tough-luck loss Saturday against Colorado, falling to 0-2 on the season.

Apr. 7 3:14 PM PT4:14 PM MT5:14 PM CT6:14 PM ET18:14 ET22:14 GMT6:14 3:14 PM MST5:14 PM EST5:44 PM VEN2:14 UAE (+1)5:14 PM CT-Cain received the loss after yielding five runs and six hits over six innings of Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.
Analysis: Cain surrendered three homers, which could be a concern for owners after he allowed a career-high 1.12 home runs per nine innings in 2013.
