SAN FRANCISCO – Matt Cain will be rehabbing more than his right arm this offseason.
Already out for the season after having bone chips removed from his elbow, Cain underwent another procedure on Saturday to have a spur removed from his right ankle. The Giants announced that the surgery went well and has a two-month recovery time.
Either Cain already had met his deductible for the year (kidding), or he and the Giants decided to take care of the ankle while he was rehabbing from the elbow procedure. He’s two months into that three-month rehab schedule.
Cain still should be able to resume his throwing program in December, as he usually does. He’s under contract for $20 million annually through 2017, with a club option for the following season.
