Giants survive opener, have health concerns about rotation - San Francisco Chronicle

The Giants also will need to scramble for a Game 3 starter because Matt Cain had an MRI exam after feeling right-forearm tightness and was diagnosed with a strained flexor tendon.

Cain’s symptoms put a big scare into the Giants because they can reflect the most devastating pitching injury, a torn ulnar collateral ligament, which requires Tommy John surgery. Bochy said Cain has nothing like that and termed his injury “more like a two-week thing.”

“The trainers seem positive about it,” Cain said. “It should be something we can take care of. It’s definitely frustrating. It kind of goes with the territory. Sometimes there are going to be bumps in the road in the rehab process. I’m going to have to deal with it and move forward.”
