Matt Cain, who skipped his last start on Tuesday because of a cut on his finger, has been placed on the 15-day DL. Jake Dunning has been called up from Triple-A Fresno.

Most people who heard the news were surprised, especially since Cain said he was ready and Bochy made no comments post-game about Cain.

Yusmeiro Petit (2-1, 2/61 ERA) is expected to make Cain’s scheduled start tomorrow.

It’s still unsure exactly what happened between this morning and this evening, it’s possible something happened in the bullpen session he threw on Friday.
