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.

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

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.
Apr 30 - 6:35 PM

Lorenzo Cain had a hit, a walk and a stolen base in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.

That was about as exciting as a Royals offensive performance got on Thursday, as the club collected just four hits and didn't score a run in 13 innings of baseball. The steal was Cain's sixth of the year, best in the American League. After an injury-marked 2016 season, Cain has looked perfectly healthy en route to a .340/.462/.396 line to start 2017.
Apr 21 - 12:53 AM

Lorenzo Cain collected two more hits in four at-bats Saturday against the Angels.

Cain recorded his fourth consecutive multi-hit game, and he has hit safely in five in a row and nine of the past 10 games overall. While he struck out twice in Saturday's game, he still has 10 walks to just nine strikeouts overall while posting a solid .512 on-base percentage.

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored Friday against the Angels.

Cain now has three straight multi-hit games, as his red-hot start continues. He’s hitting .364/.512/.424 through 10 games this season and has already drawn 10 walks. He walked 31 times in 434 plate appearances last season.
Apr 15 - 12:23 AM

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Thursday’s win over the A’s.

Cain opened the game’s scoring with his RBI single off Jesse Hahn in the first inning. The Royals would tack on one more in the frame and add another in the third to build a 3-0 lead. More than enough support for a game Jason Vargas, who pitched 7 2/3 scoreless frames when all was said and done. Cain has been hitting well early on, but the power has not come yet. He has just one extra-base hit in his first 29 at-bats.
Apr 14 - 5:10 AM

Lorenzo Cain was scratched from Tuesday's Cactus League game against the White Sox due to tightness in his left side.

Alex Gordon will take his place in center field with Brandon Moss handling left. Cain felt tightness during batting practice and was scratched as a precaution. Until the Royals update his status, consider Cain day-to-day.
Mar 28 - 4:13 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored, and a stolen base in Monday’s win over the Athletics.

After injuries limited Cain to 103 games last season, he has put together a strong spring by batting .286 (12-for-42) with an .830 OPS. The 30-year-old is capable of making an impact across all categories in fantasy leagues, but his health is a bit of a red flag. He’s one of a few prominent Royals going into their walk year.
Mar 27 - 7:26 PM

Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's split-squad win over the Giants.

Cain's two-run homer off Kraig Sitton in the fifth inning would stand as the decisive blow in what ended as a 2-0 final score in the Royals' advantage. Injuries limited him to just 103 games played last season. If he can maintain his health in 2017, he makes for a rock-solid fantasy option.
Mar 4 - 7:16 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Rangers have had discussions about Lorenzo Cain.

It's not a surprise, as the Rangers are looking for a right-handed hitting center fielder and the Royals are reportedly fielding offers for Cain. The Rangers also have interest in bringing back Ian Desmond and Carlos Gomez. Cain has drawn interest from the Cardinals and Dodgers.
