Cain (elbow) will begin throwing from 45-60 feet next week on a schedule of throwing three times per week, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
In addition to having surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow, Cain also had a bone spur taken out of his right ankle in September. He may be on the same schedule as the Giants' other starting pitchers once spring training begins in February if he can move through his throwing program without a setback. Cain posted an ERA above 4.00 for the second straight year in 2014, struggling with a career-high 1.251 WHIP over 90.1 innings (15 starts) before injuries ended his season prematurely.
