The San Francisco Giants believe it's "pretty unlikely" starting pitcher Matt Cain (arm) will be ready for Opening Day, according to Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area.

What It Means:

Cain missed about a week of action after having a cyst removed from his upper arm, and manager Bruce Bochy doesn't want him to rush back. Cain seems to be on board with Bochy's plan. "If we miss one to be able to go the rest of the season and not be worried about anything again, that's what we'll have to do," said Cain. "That's the biggest thing." The injury-prone right-hander made only 11 starts in 2015.

Cain threw just 60 2/3 innings last season and was knocked around, posting a 5.79 ERA and 4.94 xFIP. His strikeout percentage fell to 15.1, well below the league average of 20.4 percent. Our projections have him as the 271st overall pitcher for fantasy, easily making him avoidable in re-draft leagues.
