Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday that pitcher Matt Cain will return to the mound on Friday for San Francisco's game at home vs. the Mets, according to a tweet from Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Cain has been out since May 21 after he suffered a hamstring injury while catching Charlie Blackmon looking to end the third inning in San Francisco's 5-1 win over Colorado. He was placed on the 15-day DL and was initially slated to return at the end of May in a game against the Cardinals, but Bochy moved his return back after he experienced soreness following his full pen last week.

Bochy had said that if the injury happened it September, the team would bring him back sooner, an indication that the hamstring injury is not all that serious and his absence on the field is more of a precaution than anything else.

Prior to the injury, the 29-year-old three-time All-Star had a 3.66 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in eight starts this season.
