Lorenzo Cain singled in the only run of the game in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI and a run scored in a win over the Twins on Saturday.

Cain swatted a two-run double in the third inning and added a sacrifice fly RBI later in the game. He's now hit in six straight games, going 14-for-27 with eight RBI and five runs scored in those six contests. It's nice to see him rounding into form after he showed some rust following activation from the disabled list in late July. Cain is now hitting .289/.333/.408 overall.

Lorenzo Cain reached base four times in Monday's victory over the Tigers.

He walked twice and had a couple singles, with one of them driving in a run. Cain had been in a horrible slump, but he's now tallied six hits over his last seven at-bats. His batting line for the season is sitting at .283/.327/.399.

Lorenzo Cain finished 4-for-4 with three RBI in the Royals' 11-4 rout of the Twins on Sunday.

Cain drove in the game's first run with a sacrifice fly in the top of the first inning and then added a double in the fourth and singles in the fifth, sixth, and eighth. His single in the top of the sixth plated Christian Colon and Cheslor Cuthbert. Cain had been stuck in a bad offensive slump since his return from the disabled list on July 29. Maybe this will get him going toward a big finish.

Lorenzo Cain singled in Christian Colon in the bottom of the 14th to give the Royals a 3-2 win over the White Sox on Wednesday.

Aug 4 - 9:44 AM

Lorenzo Cain managed one hit in three at-bats as the Royals lost big on Wednesday.

The Royals managed only two hits all night. Salvador Perez had the other. Cain has a .285 batting average with eight home runs, 41 runs and 40 RBI overall. His eight stolen bases are probably his best contribution to fantasy rosters in what has been a disappointing season for his owners.
Aug 3 - 10:44 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

The hits were the first two for Cain since he returned from the disabled list on July 29. The hamstring that sidelined him for a month certainly hasn't hampered him since his return, as Cain now has two steals in those four games. The outfielder will look to finish strong after that missed time, and he's hitting .284/.331/.405 in 77 games overall.
Aug 2 - 10:51 PM

Royals activated OF Lorenzo Cain from the 15-day disabled list.

Cain missed exactly a month of action with a strained left hamstring but is ready to roll now after playing a couple rehab games. Brett Eibner was optioned in a corresponding move.

Jul 15 - 4:11 PM

It's the first time that he has done so since suffering his injury. He could soon be ready for a minor league rehab assignment, where he's expected to need around 10-15 at-bats before he's ready to rejoin the Royals. He's eligible to be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.
Jul 8 - 8:28 PM
