Before the two parties reached an agreement, the Giants and Cain’s agents were struggling to come to an agreement as Cain maintained that his absolute floor was five years and $100 million.  Under the new deal, Cain is guaranteed $112.5 million of new money over five years, the largest contract ever for a right-handed pitcher, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

In six Cactus League exhibition games this spring, Cain was 3-0 with a 1.42 ERA tossing 24 strikeouts and just three walks.  Coaches have remarked that he appears to be in the best shape of his career.  Last season, Cain was 12-8 with a 2.88 ERA and tossing 179 strikeouts.
