    Matt Cain's San Francisco house was available for $1.795 million.

    San Francisco Giants' pitcher Matt Cain might be an ace on the mound but in the real estate market, he is human like the rest of us.

    Last year the World Series-winning pitcher put his remodeled Diamond Heights home on the market for $255,000 less than what he purchased it for in 2008.

    Now he has reportedly sold it for about $5,000 above his asking price at $1.8 million. While that is higher than what he was asking, it sold for about $250,000 less than what he paid for it in 2008.

    The house at 1901 Diamond St. features four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

    It was originally built in 1968 and it is 2,815-square-feet. You can view the full listing at Trulia's website.

    Don't feel too bad for Cain. He is expected to fetch a multi-year, $20 million a season or more deal, by the time he hits the free agent market next season
