CINCINNATI -- Giants right-hander Matt Cain is "good to go" as the starter for Friday night's series opener against the New York Mets, manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday.

Cain, 29, has apparently recovered from a strained right hamstring, which he sustained May 21 when he pitched three hitless innings at Colorado. That injury forced him onto the 15-day disabled list for the second time this season. He was sidelined in late April with a cut on the tip of his right index finger.

Having missed four starts during his stints on the DL, Cain is 1-3 with a 3.66 ERA in eight starts. He's 5-5 with a 3.57 ERA in 12 career starts against the Mets.

Cain continued his progress Wednesday by playing catch with Madison Bumgarner on flat ground.
