Lorenzo Cain (quad) went 1-for-3 with a single, two walks, and a stolen base in his return to the starting lineup Friday against the Mets.

Cain has been dealing with left quad soreness since a collision with Cardinals first baseman Jose Martinez on Monday, but he felt well enough to give it a go. It’s worth noting that Cain narrowly avoided another injury on Friday, this time with teammate Domingo Santana as they both called for a fly ball. After returning to Milwaukee on a five-year, $80 million contract, the 32-year-old is batting .286/.345/.429 with one home run, five RBI, and four steals through 12 games this season.

Apr 13 - 3:48 PM

Lorenzo Cain (quad) is expected to return to the lineup on Friday against the Mets.

Lorenzo Cain is dealing with a slight quad injury.

Lorenzo Cain left Monday's game versus the Cardinals after colliding with Jose Martinez at first base.

Cain lunged to first base with his right leg and his left foot clipped Martinez in the lower right leg. He walked around gingerly for a few moments before exiting. The Brewers should have an update on the outfielder soon.
Apr 9 - 10:12 PM

Lorenzo Cain finished Friday's 8-6 victory in San Diego with a pair of doubles, two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base.

Cain is off to a great start with a pair of multi-hit performances and a stolen base in each game so far. He'll look to keep it rolling Saturday against LHP Brent Suter. Cain hit .277 with 15 extra-base hits across 130 at-bats against southpaws in 2017, and his OPS (.824) was actually higher against lefties than against righties (.797).
Mar 31 - 3:40 AM

Lorenzo Cain finished 3-for-5 with a stolen base in his return to the Brewers on Thursday, batting leadoff and playing center field in a win over the Padres.

Cain did exactly what was envisioned of him when the Brewers inked him to a five-year, $80 million contract in January, getting on base and using his speed to make things happen atop the order. It didn't translate into any runs or RBI on this day, but he'll have plenty of both in a robust Brewers lineup this year.
Mar 30 - 12:26 AM

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-2 with a pair of singles and a run scored in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Rockies.

Perfect day for Cain before he hit the showers. This spring, the veteran outfielder has hit the ground running, collecting 11 hits in 24 at-bats, which works out to a slick .458 batting average. The Brewers inked the ever-consistent outfielder to a five-year, $80 million contract near the end of January.
Mar 10 - 6:13 PM

Lorenzo Cain finished 2-for-2 with a pair of singles as the split-squad Brewers defeated the Giants 6-5 on Friday.

Originally drafted by the Brewers, Cain returned to Milwaukee over the winter on a five-year, $80 million contract. He batted third on Friday, but he's slated to serve as the regular leadoff hitter this season. It’s a great situation for fantasy owners.
Feb 23 - 8:06 PM

Brewers signed OF Lorenzo Cain to a five-year, $80 million contract.

The deal was reported Thursday evening and has now been made official. It's the largest free agent contract the Brewers have ever handed out and also is the biggest free agent deal so far this offseason. Cain, who is returning to his original organization, batted .300/.363/.440 with 15 home runs and 26 stolen bases for the Royals last season and will be Milwaukee's everyday center fielder.
Jan 26 - 1:05 PM

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reports that the Brewers and Lorenzo Cain have come to terms on a deal.

Cain returns to his original organization, giving the Brewers a very crowded outfield at the moment. Cain will likely play center, moving Christian Yelich to right field. Either Domingo Santana or Ryan Braun figures to be shipped out in a trade relatively soon. The Brewers could get a quality pitcher in return for Santana, while Braun would primarily be a salary dump.
Jan 25 - 7:29 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Lorenzo Cain is currently weighing a "variety of offers."

Heyman also says that Cain has begun to alert certain teams that they are no longer in consideration for his services. There's no mention of which teams remain in the running or which teams are out, but Heyman does note that it's believed Cain has several four-year offers on the table. The 31-year-old hit 15 home runs and stole 26 bases for the Royals in 2017, and he also rates as a strong defender in the outfield. We could finally be close to seeing a marquee free agent position player putting pen to paper.
