Matt Cain to return Saturday

San Francisco Giants right-hander Matt Cain says his cut finger has healed and he plans to start Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers after coming off the disabled list.

Cain cut his right index finger while making a ham and cheese sandwich and was placed on the DL retroactive to April 24.

"It feels like a finger," Cain playfully told the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday.

Said manager Bruce Bochy: "Barring any setbacks, he's good to go."

Cain, a three-time All-Star, is 0-3 this season with a 4.35 ERA.

Yusmeiro Petit, who started in place of Cain and gave up eight runs against the Pirates on Monday, will return to the bullpen for the Giants.
