Matt Cain will have his Monday start skipped due to a sore hamstring.
Cain cut his Saturday bullpen session and threw only 15 pitches before his hamstring started to act up on him. He's in no shape to pitch Monday which is a shame considering his strong numbers against the Cubs. The Giants are still hoping that he won't need a DL stint, but they may have no choice. Cain will likely head for an MRI and once they have the results from that, they can formulate a game plan. Yusmiero Petit will take the start in his place.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Robert Quinn is making progress from his back issue.
After missing Sunday's game, Quinn seems to be making steps toward's returning. Quinn is one of the game's elite pass rushers but has been slowed down by injuries all season long. Quinn is two years removed from a 19 sack season and the Rams are hoping he returns to that when he gets back on the field. Analysis: James Grande
Braves signed P Jim Johnson to a one-year deal.
After saving 50-plus games two consecutive years in Baltimore, Johnson has been a shell of that the past two seasons. He only has 12 saves combined over the past two seasons. He posted a 7.09 ERA in 2014 and a 4.46 ERA in 2015. The Braves are giving him one year to figure himself out or he'll likely have a hard time finding work. He can only hope his sinker starts sinking like it did in Baltimore. Analysis: James Grande
