Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle has the news …
“Cain is good to go.”
So said manager Bruce Bochy, asked whether Matt Cain will start against the Mets as hoped when the Giants return home Friday night.
Cain threw a 70-pitch bullpen session and felt no pain in his right hamstring, an injury that has cost him two starts and landed him on the disabled list.
The Giants’ backup option for Friday was Yusmeiro Petit, who will return to long relief. Cain boasts a 3.66 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 46 2/3 innings (eight starts) this season for first-place San Francisco.
The 29-year-old right-hander initially injured his right hamstring on May 21 at Coors Field.
