Giants pitcher Matt Cain, who was ruled out for the season in early August after undergoing elbow surgery, had surgery on his right ankle on Saturday to remove a bone spur, according to the Giants' Twitter account.
The recovery time is expected to be two months.
The three-time All-Star, who has spent his entire 10-year career with the Giants, is owed $20 million annually through 2017 with a club option for the following season. He's having one of the worst seasons of his career, going 2-7 with a 4.18 ERA in 90 1/3 innings over 15 starts.
