Matt Cain out for season, Giants say

Cain is unAbel.

The Giants right-hander will have bone chips in his right elbow removed next Monday in San Francisco. He is expected to be sidelined for about three months, but should be healthy in time for spring training.

“It’s been frustrating for him,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “Matt’s been battling this for a while. It’s time. He could keep trying to push it but it’s inevitable, it looks like. Let’s have this done and get him ready for spring training.”

Cain hasn’t pitched since July 9 and was put on the disabled list July 21. He saw three doctors, all of whom recommended surgery. Cain played catch on Friday to test his elbow one last time but was not optimistic about returning, saying the bone chips were unlikely to shift into a more tolerable position.

Cain will fail to reach 30 starts for the first time as a full-time big leaguer.
