Giants Pitcher Cain to Have Season Ending Surgery

Giants Pitcher Cain to Have Season Ending Surgery

Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain will undergo season ending surgery next Monday, manager Bruce Bochy said on Monday. The procedure will remove bone chips and spurs from the righty's throwing elbow.

Giants orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki will perform the surgery in San Francisco. Cain, 29, also sought the opinions of Dr. James Andrews and New York Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek. All recommended surgery which has an expected recovery time of three months.

Cain was just 2-7 in 2014 with a 4.18 earned run average in 15 starts after pitching more than 200 innings every year from 2007-2012. The righty did not comment after San Francisco's 4-3 win over the Mets on Monday.

"It's been frustrating for Matt," said Bochy. "He's been battling this for a while. It's time. He could keep trying to push it, but it's inevitable, it looks like. So we're going to have this done and have him ready for Spring Training."

ESPN: Giants Acquire Starting Pitcher Jake Peavy from the Red Sox

ESPN: Giants Acquire Starting Pitcher Jake Peavy from the Red Sox

Tom Szczerbowksi/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- One of the best teams in the National League has gotten a little bit better as ESPN and other outlets are reporting that the Boston Red Sox have traded starting pitcher Jake Peavy to the San Francisco Giants.

In return, the Red Sox will receive prospects Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree

This marks the second time in as many seasons that the former National League Cy Young winner has been traded. Last season, the Red Sox received Peavy from the Chicago White Sox to help bolster their rotation.

The 33-year-old Peavy is not the pitcher he once was, but going back to the National Leauge where he started his career could be just what he needs.

In 20 starts this season, Peavy is just 1-9 with a 4.72 ERA and a WHIP of 1.43.

Peavy will now go from a team in the Red Sox that will struggle to get back to the postseason this year, to a Giants team that is currently in first place in the NL West.

Dan Uggla Signs with Giants

Dan Uggla Signs with Giants

Tony Firriolo/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Just three days after being released by the Atlanta Braves, Dan Uggla signed a minor-league contract with the San Francisco Giants on Monday. The second baseman reported to Triple-A Fresno upon signing the deal.

"This is a chance for us to take a look at him and evaluate him, and a chance for him to go down and get his timing and get some playing time," said Giants manager Bruce Bochy. "At some point we're going to have to make a call. I can't say he's going to be up here in the next few days, no. He needs some playing time right now."

A three-time All-Star, Uggla was in his fourth season with Atlanta, but was hitting an abysmal .162 with just 10 RBI and two home runs in 48 games. The 34-year-old struck out 495 times in 451 games with the Braves from 2011-13 while also putting together a franchise record 33-game hitting streak.

Uggla underwent eye surgery last summer and was left off the Braves postseason roster before being reinserted in Spring Training.
