5012 E Mockingbird Lane

Purchased for $5.5 million in 2013, San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain has put his 11,000-square-foot pad in Paradise Valley, Arizona on the market for $5.85 million.

Rebuilt in 2009, the five-bedroom, Tuscan-style home at 5012 East Mockingbird Lane is finished in walnut, marble, mahogany and stone, with a bi-level garage for eight cars and a detached one-bedroom guesthouse adjacent to the pool.

No official word on why Cain is pitching the pad.

    My guess is he feels his family doesn’t need an 11,000 square foot home that only gets used 6-8 weeks out of the year.

    Perhaps he doesn’t like his water bill. That’s a lot of grass for the desert.

      I was thinking the same thing. Suck those aquifers dry! (Or I guess it is Lake Mead?)

        Florida landscape with desert rainfall, nothing wrong there.

          Baseball players aren’t concerned with the environment.

    I think he rents here in SF, since he sold his old place on Diamond St.

      I thought I read somewhere that he moved to the East Bay after selling the Diamond Street property.

        Which has had a “Coming Soon” for-sale sign on it for at least a couple of months now, so it’s turning over again.

    Maybe they’re sick and tired of tracking grass clippings into the house after a dip in the pool.

    That place would be 40mil in Atherton. I’d take the place in Arizona and a G650

    It could also be that he knows it’s unlikely he’s going to get another huge whopper contract, and his kids are old enough that they need some stability, not a second home.
