The slumping Lorenzo Cain went 0-for-5 in the loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.
Cain was a big part of the Royals' surge last month, but he's hitting just .207/.266/.268 with four RBI in his last 22 games. He's been particularly bad during this eight-game stretch that's seen the Royals go 1-7 and never score more than four runs. Jul 18 - 11:19 PM

Lorenzo Cain hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Cain stepped to the plate with the game tied at 3-3 and the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning. Facing off with Jason Grilli, he proceeded to slash a relatively deep fly ball to right field. Shin-Soo Choo should have been able to track down the hit, but he was undone by the sun on the play and it ultimately clanged off his glove to give the Royals the walk-off win. For the season as a whole, Cain is slashing .273/.344/.432 with 11 homers, 31 RBI and 15 steals in 85 games.

Lorenzo Cain was ejected for arguing Saturday against the Dodgers.

Cain wasn't happy about a called strike three in the seventh and gave home plate umpire Bill Miller a piece of his mind between innings. Obviously Miller got the better of that exchange. Upon his departure, Alex Gordon moved from left field to center with Whit Merrifield sliding over to left. Cain went 1-for-3 with a walk before getting tossed.
Jul 8 - 10:20 PM

Lorenzo Cain finished 3-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs and three RBI in Friday's win at L.A. Angels.

It was the fifth multi-homer game of Cain's career, and the second in a week. He has posted three consecutive multi-hit games, swatting at least one homer in each of the games. "I'm just swinging at better pitches," Cain said. The outfielder has been scorching in June, hitting .368 (21-for-57) with eight homers, 16 RBI and 18 runs scored to raise his average from .257 to .283.

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Angels.

Cain rocked a solo home run off Ricky Nolasco to lead off the third inning. He has swatted homers in each of his last two games and has gone yard five times in the last eight. His career-high of 16 long balls from 2015 could fall before the season is done -- Cain's dinger on Thursday was his eighth of the current campaign.
Jun 16 - 1:35 AM

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI to help the Royals come back and defeat the Padres 12-6 on Saturday.

The Royals were held scoreless through four innings but came on strong late, including Cain's solo homer in the sixth followed by a grand slam in the eighth. He's tripled his home run total since the start of June, which isn't terribly hard when you hit just two homers through the season's first two months. Still, that's a promising development, and the 31-year-old now has six homers and 12 steals to go with a .269/.347/.417 line in 59 games.
Jun 11 - 12:34 AM

Lorenzo Cain tripled with one out in the seventh inning to break up Lance McCullers' no-hit bid in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

Cain tripled to the left centerfield gap on a 3-0 pitch with one out and later came home on a Mike Moustakas RBI single. The three-bagger was his second of the season. In his last two games, Cain has now homered and tripled to snap a little 0-for-9 slide. He is currently working to a .263/.343/.388 triple-slash with four homers, 25 runs scored and 12 steals.
Jun 8 - 10:59 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with a homer, three RBI, and two runs scored Saturday in the Royals' 12-5 defeat of the Indians.

Cain contributed a two-run dinger to the Royals' six-run fifth inning and then added an RBI single in the Royals' five-run seventh. The 31-year-old center fielder has batted .272/.356/.385 with three home runs, 14 RBI, 12 stolen bases, and 22 runs scored through 52 games this season for Kansas City. An impending free agent, he'll be a very popular name around the trade deadline.
Jun 3 - 5:59 PM

Lorenzo Cain swatted his second homer of the season Tuesday versus the Yankees.

Cain's solo shot with one out in the seventh was the only run the Royals could muster off of Jordan Montgomery, but they got to the Yankees' bullpen in the latter innings. While he's sporting a .361 on-base percentage, Cain's homer Tuesday was only his second of the season.
May 23 - 10:10 PM

Lorenzo Cain (wrist) went 0-for-4 in Thursday's win over the Yankees.

Cain was removed from Wednesday's game as a precaution after he tweaked his left wrist in the field during the game, but he was right back in there Thursday. That's a good sign. Despite the hitless night, the 31-year-old is batting a healthy .290/.385/.384 in 38 games this year.
May 18 - 11:06 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with an RBI double, a stolen base, and a run scored in Friday's 3-2 win over the Orioles

Cain singled in the eighth and scored the go-ahead run on a double off the bat of Eric Hosmer. He's now a perfect 10-for-10 in stolen base attempts this season to go along with an impressive .292/.401/.392 batting line. He has hit safely in four straight games, three of them of the multi-hit variety.
May 12 - 11:23 PM

Lorenzo Cain is out of the Rays' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Rays.

It looks to be a routine day of rest for the 31-year-old center fielder, who's been on a good roll offensively over the last week. Alex Gordon is in center on Thursday, with Emilio Bonifacio in left and Jorge Soler in right.
May 11 - 9:38 AM

Lorenzo Cain swiped his seventh base of the season as the Royals fell to the Indians on Sunday afternoon.

Cain went 0-for-3 and was hit by a pitch in the contest. The Royals offense as a whole has been anemic this season and Sunday was no different, generating just one hit against Mike Clevinger and company. Cain is now hitting .269/.387/.375 with one homer and six RBI on the season.
May 7 - 5:20 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 and scored the Royals' only run of the game in Saturday's loss to the Indians.

He doubled in the sixth inning and scored on an Eric Hosmer single. He owns a .277 batting average with one home run, 11 runs scored, six RBI and six stolen bases in 120 at-bats. He is a serviceable fourth outfielder in fantasy leagues.
May 6 - 7:03 PM

Lorenzo Cain slugged his first home run of the season Sunday versus the Twins.

The solo shot off Phil Hughes gave Cain his fifth RBI of the season. He's off to a sluggish start in the power department, but the 31-year-old impending free agent does have six stolen bases and a .385 OBP.
