PHOENIX (AP) - Before throwing a single pitch in the regular season, San Francisco's Matt Cain wound up on the disabled list.

San Francisco said Tuesday that Cain has a flexor tendon strain in his right forearm, and the Giants put the 30-year-old right-hander on the DL retroactive to April 4.

Cain will return to San Francisco for further evaluation. He could miss two weeks, according to statement from the club.

Cain was scratched from his scheduled start on Wednesday, and the Giants said an MRI revealed Cain does not have ligament damage in his forearm.
