San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain may lose his spot in the rotation, according to Fox Sports.

What It Means:

Tim Hudson is the most likely candidate to take Cain's spot, if Cain is indeed removed from the rotation. The right-hander owns a 6.15 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through 10 starts. Cain is signed through the 2017 season with a $7.5 million buyout for 2018.

With San Francisco in the thick of the playoff race, the Giants can't afford to be too patient with their troubled starter. Cain has given up at least four runs in five of his last six starts, posting a ghastly 8.03 ERA in August. Among the 288 pitchers who have tossed at least 50 innings, Cain's FIP of 5.59 ranks 280th. Our rest-of-season projections -- 5.96 ERA and 1.51 WHIP -- aren't flattering.
