Via Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Giants have activated Matt Cain from the 15-day disabled list in time to make tonight’s start against the Mets. To clear room on the roster, the club has designated lefty David Huff for assignment.
Cain went on the disabled list retroactive to May 22 with a strained right hamstring. The Giants had hoped he was healthy enough to make last Saturday’s start against the Cardinals, but decided to be cautious and give Cain the time he needed to recuperate.
Cain, 29, resumes his season with a 3.66 ERA and a 39/17 K/BB ratio in 46 2/3 innings across eight starts. He’ll be opposed by Jonathon Niese for tonight’s match in San Francisco.
Huff, 29, posted a 6.30 ERA with an 11/6 K/BB ratio over 20 innings out of the bullpen.
