San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain underwent right-elbow surgery on Aug. 12 to remove bone chips. His estimated recovery period is three months.

San Francisco Giants right-hander Matt Cain underwent surgery on Aug. 12 to remove bone chips and bone spurs from his right elbow. 

According to MLB.com's Chris Haft, Cain's rehabilitation will take around three months:

"Giants right-hander Matt Cain will require three months of rehabilitation following surgery on his throwing elbow, manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday. 

"Cain had bone chips and bone spurs removed from his elbow on Monday by Dr. Ken Akizuki, the Giants' team orthopedist. A three-time All-Star, Cain is expected to be fully recovered by the start of Spring Training next February. 

"'I think he's excited for the fact that he got his elbow cleaned out,' Bochy said of Cain, 29. 

"Bochy related that Cain saved some of the bone fragments in a jar, as players often do. Cain pitched successfully with the chips in his elbow for years.

"'It's amazing this guy was pitching, when you look at the jar,' Bochy said. 

"In other injury-related news, Bochy said that catcher Hector Sanchez whose recovery from post-concussion syndrome was slowed recently when he was struck by another dangerous foul tip, was expected to serve as Triple-A Fresno's designated hitter Tuesday night and go back behind the plate Wednesday. Both games are against Oklahoma City."

Back on Aug. 2, Cain was still undecided on having surgery or not but the Giants expected all along he will sit out the rest of the year, per ESPN New York's Danny Knobler:

"Matt Cain has bone chips in his right elbow, and the San Francisco Giants right-hander will likely have surgery now or try to pitch through the pain, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy later told reporters that he expects Cain is done for the year. 

"Cain saw Dr. James Andrews this week, saw Dr. David Altchek on Friday and consulted with another doctor as well. All three doctors agreed that the bone chips are the cause of the problems Cain has been having, and they will need to be taken out. 

"'I've had them for 10 years,' Cain said. 'They've always been there. Now they're mad, and they're letting me know about it.' 

"Cain played catch on flat ground Friday afternoon, and said that he was still pondering the question of when he would have the surgery. 

"'I think a lot depends on what my elbow is going to tell me,' Cain said."

In another team development, the Giants are expressing sorrow over the recent death of beloved actor Robin Williams, per MLB.com's AJ Cassavell:

"Williams transcended boundaries, his roles in movies offering all sorts of people a respite from their troubles, however brief.

"And Williams certainly put smiles on the faces of many great baseball fans. 

"Think back to 2010, when the Giants began their improbable run to a first World Series title in 56 years. Who got that all started? Williams of course. 

"Before Game 1 of the National League Division Series, Williams pumped up the crowd. He started by giving a new spin on 'Good Morning, Vietnam,' yelling instead, 'Good Evening, San Francisco!'

"After Williams' tragic death, the Giants' released a statement Monday evening:

"'We were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Robin Williams. Robin was a true artist who brought joy to the world through his brilliance, humor, talent and love for the community. We lost one of our greatest fans today and he will be deeply missed by the Giants family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Robin's family and the entire community during this difficult time.'" 

 

Cain is in his 10th MLB season -- all with the Giants -- and has amassed a 95-95 win-loss record with 1,506 strikeouts and a 3.39 ERA in 281 career regular-season games, per ESPN stats
