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
Wilson Ramos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Nationals 2-1 win over the Cubs on Monday.
Ramos hit his third home run of the season on Monday to go with a .285 average, 13 runs and 21 RBI. Health has been Ramos’s biggest hindrance so far in his career as he has appeared in more than 100 games just once since he entered the league in 2010 but that has not stopped the production as he has hit 10+ home runs three times since 2011 and boasts a per 162 average of 22 home runs and 87 RBI which would make him one of the top offensive catchers in baseball. Ramos owners should keep their fingers crossed that this is the year he plays a full season as they will likely end up with one of the top catchers in fantasy. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
