The Giants placed Cain on the 15-day disabled list on May 28 after he suffered a strained right hamstring. He injured it after pitching 1.2 innings against the Colorado Rockies on May 27. He’s expected to be activated on Monday to make the start against the Milwaukee Brewers. Cain will oppose Chase Anderson. Cain is 1-5, with a 5.20 ERA.
The Giants will get some help in the outfield soon. Pagan started a rehab assignment on Saturday with the Sacramento River Cats (AAA) and went 1-for-3. On May 23, he re-injured his left hamstring while running to first base. Either Jarret Parker or Mac Williamson is expected to be sent down when Pagan returns. Pagan is hitting .275, with a .338 on-base percentage.
It might be awhile before the Giants see the bearded right-hander again. Romo recently made three rehab appearances with Sacramento but had a setback when he felt tenderness in his elbow. He had been put on the 15-day disabled list on Apr. 15 with a flexor strain in his right arm but has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list. An MRI revealed no structural damage. Romo has a 2.70 ERA and a 0.60 WHIP in four games this year.
The Giants placed Tomlinson on the disabled list on Saturday with a left thumb sprain. He hurt himself on a diving play in the seventh inning of Wednesday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox. Tomlinson is batting .289, with a .379 on-base percentage, in 76 at-bats.
Adrianza broke his back foot on Apr. 14 in Colorado after fouling a ball off it in the eighth inning of that game. He could come off the disabled list in late June. Adrianza is 3-for-10 this season.
Fans will not see Hunter Pence for a long while. He’s on the 15-day disabled list but will miss six-to-eight weeks with a severe, right hamstring strain. He hurt himself on June 1 in Atlanta while he was running to first base on a ground ball to third. Pence had surgery on Thursday to remove the tendon. Pence had missed six starts from May 21 to May 27 due to a hamstring strain. Pence was hitting .298, with seven home runs and 36 RBIs.
