Matt Cain was scratched from Monday’s scheduled start due to lingering discomfort in his right hamstring, but he’s aiming to return on Saturday against the Cardinals.
Cain, who strained the hamstring last Wednesday, ran and threw off flat ground this afternoon at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. However, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle notes that Giants manager Bruce Bochy didn’t sound 100 percent convinced about his readiness for Saturday. They’ll wait to see how he feels tomorrow before making a final decision on his status.
Cain landed on the disabled list last last month due to a cut on his right index finger, so he has been limited to just three starts in May. The 29-year-old has a 3.66 ERA and 39/17 K/BB ratio in 46 2/3 innings over eight starts this season overall.
