Lorenzo Cain was diagnosed with a strained hamstring that forced his early exit from Tuesday's game.

He'll be re-evaluated by team doctors on Wednesday before determining a course of action. Even if he avoids a trip to the disabled list, expect him to miss a game or two. Look for an update after Wednesday's exam.

Lorenzo Cain was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Cardinals with an apparent leg injury.

Cain lunged for first base in an attempt to beat out an infield single and appeared to tweak something. He also had his base hit taken away from him on video review, literally adding insult to injury. He'll get checked out in the clubhouse and the Royals should have an update on his status shortly.

Lorenzo Cain continued his blistering stretch at the plate, going 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Cain is 20-for-45 (.444) with 13 RBI in his last 11 games. After his three-hit day on Wednesday, he's now hitting .305/.355/.462 on the year with eight home runs, 30 runs scored and 34 RBI in 214 plate appearances. He's looking more and more like a prototypical no. 3 hitter every year, too, which is nuts. The 30-year-old is a top-15 fantasy outfielder at this point in his career. Without question.

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored as the Royals slugged their way past the Rays 10-5 on Tuesday.

Cain hit a two-run homer off Rays starter Drew Smyly in the first inning and added a two-run single in the fourth. The multi-hit game was his 13th in the month of May, a month he is surely sad to see end. Cain batted .351 with six homers, 25 RBI and 18 runs scored in the month, giving him eight home runs, 33 RBI and 28 runs scored to go with a .295/.348/.456 line overall.
Jun 1 - 12:40 AM

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI double in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Cain opened the contest with an RBI double off Chris Sale in the first inning. He wouldn't strike again until the eighth. Entering that frame, the Royals trailed by a score of 4-2. Cain cut the lead to one with a solo homer off Nate Jones. His squad would ultimately score three runs in the inning to take the lead. The 30-year-old outfielder has notched multiple hits in six of his last 10 games and is slashing .292/.343/.443 with seven homers, 28 RBI and six steals across 185 at-bats.
May 29 - 6:37 PM

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.
May 25 - 12:33 AM

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.
