Bruce Bochy sat down with Matt Cain and told the longtime Giant pitcher that he will be heading to the bullpen as the team's Ace, Madison Bumgarner returns to the rotation this weekend from injury. Mad Bum finished his rehab stint in Class A ball in San Jose and deemed himself ready to return to the club against the Padres. Cain will serve as long reliever out of the pen. 

Bochy talked about the idea of a six man rotation, but said it would leave the bullpen one reliever short.
