Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed Matt Cain has had some crankiness in his elbow. It's the same as has had in past years and could possibly related to bone chips.
Fantasy owners have been looking for a reason for Cain's struggles this season and it would appear that we finally have one. In the past, he's pitched through elbow problems and been successful, but the numbers have never suffered like they have this season, so it is very possible that the malady has caught up with everyone's favorite fantasy workhorse. Monitor this situation very closely as it could spell trouble for Cain in the second half of the season. Cautious optimism is probably your best course of action for the time being, unless you can find an owner looking to buy-low on Cain but still offering something decent in return.ANALYST: Howard Bender
