Player Notes
Matt Cain (elbow, ankle) is expected to make his first Cactus League start around March 10.

Advice: The Giants have eased Cain into things this season, as he's coming off surgery to remove bone chips from his throwing elbow as well as a minor procedure on his right ankle. He faced hitters in Giants' camp Thursday without incident and has plenty of time to get stretched out for his first turn when the regular season gets underway.

Matt Cain (elbow, ankle) faced hitters Thursday.

Advice: It was a nice step in the right direction for the veteran right-hander, who is being eased along slowly in Giants camp this spring. Cain underwent surgery in August to remove painful bone chips and spurs from his right elbow and then needed a minor procedure in September on his right ankle. He's expected to be ready for the first week of the regular season.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy announced Saturday that Matt Cain's Cactus League debut would be pushed back a couple of weeks.

Advice: That means Cain won't toe the slab in game action until at least March 10. There have been no setbacks in his recovery from elbow surgery, the Giants simply don't want to rush him. He remains on track to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Matt Cain (elbow, ankle) is on track to make a start during the first week of Cactus League play.

Advice: Cain was a bit behind the Giants' other starters when he arrived at spring training in Arizona, but that was by design. The right-hander needed surgery in August to remove painful bone chips and spurs from his right elbow and then underwent a minor procedure in September on his right ankle. He should be 100 percent for the beginning of the 2015 regular season.
