Lorenzo Cain finished 4-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in the Royals' 7-4 win over the Twins on Tuesday.

The stolen base was his sixth, and Cain also has six homers on the season. The 30-year-old has three doubles, a home run and six RBI during a modest six-game hitting streak, and he's now put together four consecutive multi-hit games. The good stretch has his overall line up to .296/.348/.432.

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

Cain took White Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez deep for the solo blast, his sixth homer of the season. Of course, three of those came in one game, so it's not as though he's been tearing the cover off the ball with regularity. The 30-year-old has 22 RBI and 21 runs scored to go with five steals and a .271/.329/.406 line overall.
May 21 - 5:20 PM

Lorenzo Cain is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

It looks to be a simple day off. Jarrod Dyson is handling center field, while Paulo Orlando is in left.
May 15 - 11:30 AM

Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-4 with his fourth steal of the year in Friday's 5-1 win over the Braves.

That's now an eight-game hitting streak for Cain and his first stolen base since May 1. The 30-year-old is one of the most dynamic players at the plate, on the basepaths, and in the outfield. He has a good chance at being a 15/25 player for the second year in a row. Treat him accordingly.
May 13 - 11:55 PM

Lorenzo Cain continued his torrid stretch at the plate, going 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Yankees.

Cain is now hitting 11-for-25 (.440) in his last six games and has skyrocketed his overall slash line to .274/.338/.403 with five homers and three stolen bases. He's in fine form right now and appears poised for a repeat performance as one of the most scintillating overall players in today's game.
May 11 - 11:22 PM

The Royals lost to the Yankees on Tuesday in spite of a three-homer, five-RBI night from Lorenzo Cain.

Cain entered the night with just two longballs on the season, but he gave the Royals the lead with a solo shot in the third, gave them the lead again with a three-run blast in the fifth and tied the game with a solo shot in the eighth. Two of the dingers came off of Masahiro Tanaka and the third was against Andrew Miller. Cain had a chance for a four-homer night, but Aroldis Chapman got him to pop out to end the game. The outfielder saw his batting line jump from .256/.310/.316 to .270/.321/.402 with the big night.
May 10 - 10:23 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in a win over the Indians on Saturday.

Cain has been heating up of late, with five multi-hit games in his last eight contests. The runs scored were nice to see, though -- he had scored just three times since April 15 coming into the game. With a 13-for-38 stretch over his last nine games, Cain has his season line up to .250/.308/.306.
May 7 - 7:42 PM

Lorenzo Cain hit a walk-off RBI single to complete the Royals' 7-6, comeback win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

It will go down in the scorebook as a single, but Cain tattooed a Jonathan Papelbon pitch to center that was just out of the reach of a sprawling Michael Taylor, plating Mike Moustakas and ending what was a three-run inning for the defending champs. Cain finished 2-for-5 in the game. After seeing his average dip to .200 a little over a week ago, Cain is 9-for-26 (.346) during a six-game hitting streak. It has his overall line up to .240/.305/.302.
May 4 - 1:20 AM

Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-3 with an RBI single, a run scored and a stolen base Thursday against the Tigers.

The steal was Cain's second of the year. It's been a rough few weeks for Cain, who has just two extra-base hits, both homers, through 15 games. He's batting .222/.333/.333 overall but is too talented to be held down for too much longer.
Apr 21 - 11:08 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Astros.

Cain clocked a three-run shot off Astros starter Mike Fiers in the very first inning. Those three runs would be the only ones the Royals scored on the evening. They managed to secure the win, anyway. This was Cain's second home run of the young campaign. He has gotten off to a slow start with a .200 batting average (5-for-25), but should be a reliable fantasy option in both mixed and AL-only formats as the season progresses.
Apr 13 - 12:20 AM

Lorenzo Cain hit his first home run of the season against the Twins on Saturday.

Cain also walked twice in the contest. The star outfielder is hitting .231/.412/.462 with one homer and one stolen base in the season's first week.
Apr 9 - 10:40 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

Nothing doing for Cain on offense Wednesday. Despite the hit-less day, he has been nothing short of phenomenal this spring, hitting .362 (15-for-43) with a trio of homers and a pair of doubles to his name. Last season, Cain posted career bests across the board in hitting .307/.361/.477 with 16 homers, 72 RBI and 28 steals. He contributes in all categories, making him something of a fantasy Swiss Army Knife.
Mar 30 - 5:32 PM

Lorenzo Cain hit his third homer of the spring and reached base in all three plate appearances on Monday against the Padres.

Cain took Drew Pomeranz deep in the first inning and later added an RBI single and a walk. It will be interesting to see whether Cain can repeat or perhaps even build upon last year's power outbreak. He has three homers in 41 at-bats this spring.
Mar 28 - 7:01 PM

Lorenzo Cain singled and belted a two-run homer on Monday against the White Sox.

He had one of the Royals' three longballs on the day, as Alex Gordon and Travis Snider also went deep. The home run was Cain's first of the spring, but he's collected six hits in 19 at-bats for a .316 average.
