Insight: Cain had a two-RBI single in the second to break the game open and an RBI-double to add an insurance run in the third. Cain was one of six Royals hitters to have two hits in Game 6.
 
10/15/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Game 3 of the ALCS against the Orioles.

10/3/2014 9:35:00 AM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain is 4-for-6 with a couple of extra-base hits versus Angels Game 2 starter Matt Shoemaker.
Insight: Small sample size for sure, but worth noting. Shoemaker posted an excellent 16-4 record this season, but hasn't pitched since Sept. 15.
 
10/1/2014 10:09:00 AM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain was 2-for-6 with two RBI, two runs and a stolen base against the Athletics on Tuesday in the American League Wild Card game.
Insight: Cain doubled to start the scoring in the third and singled to begin the rally in the eighth. In both frames, he came around to score. Cain also had the second of five Kansas City steals in the eighth and ninth innings. The Royals will begin their series against the Angels on Thursday.
 
9/20/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain has put together a surprisingly good season, but should not be in fantasy lineups Saturday against Detroit right-hander Max Scherzer.
Insight: Cain has hit .299 with 25 steals this season, but he's hitless in 15 at-bats against Scherzer with seven strikeouts. Update: No surprise, Cain is not in the lineup.

Insight: Cain has hit .299 with 25 steals this season, but he's hitless in 15 at-bats against Scherzer with seven strikeouts.
 
Hot8/15/2014 5:58:00 PM

Insight: Cain has hit .299 with 17 steals this season, but he's hit just three homers, driven in 39 runs and scored 38.
 
Hot7/8/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain went 4-for-4 with a triple, a walk a steal and two runs Tuesday at Tampa Bay.
Insight: Cain is batting .322 with 11 steals this season, though he has very little power and has benefited from a .397 BABIP.
 
7/2/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain has racked up seven hits in 12 at-bats against Twins starter Kevin Correia, good for a .583 average.
Insight: Cain has gone 0-for-9 his last two games after going 19-for-48 (.396) with five doubles, a triple, a homer and eight RBI from June 16-29, but he's still hitting .309 with three homers, 35 RBI, seven steals and a .776 OPS this season.
 
Hot6/29/2014 5:54:00 PM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain's four hits Sunday brought his average up to .322.
Insight: Cain has gone 19-for-48 (.396) with five doubles, a triple, a homer and eight RBI over his last 12 games. He's benefited from a .392 BABIP, so look for his average to drop below .300 eventually.
 
6/16/2014 10:41:00 PM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain smashed three hits in Monday's win over the Tigers.
Insight: Tonight was Cain's sixth game of the season with at least three hits. He's been a pleasant surprise for the Royals, hitting .310 across 168 at bats. Cain would probably be owned in almost every league if he had a little more power (2 HR this season).
 
Hot5/31/2014 10:23:00 AM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain had three hits, including a homer, and four RBI Friday at Toronto, but is not in Saturday's starting lineup.
Insight: Cain is batting .339 after collecting 12 hits in his last 25 at-bats (.480). His average is boosted by a .413 BABIP, so enjoy it while it lasts. The team will use left-hand hitter Jarrod Dyson against the young right-hander, Aaron Brooks, who will make his first career start.
 
Hot5/30/2014 10:13:00 PM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain had three hits, including a homer, and four RBI Friday at Toronto.
Insight: Cain is batting .339 after collecting 12 hits in his last 25 at-bats (.480). His average is boosted by a .413 BABIP, so enjoy it while it lasts.
 
5/5/2014 5:18:00 PM
Description: Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain has been activated from the 15-day DL.
Insight: He's missed the last 17 games with a strained groin. Cain's return will probably prevent Jarrod Dyson (.289, 0 HR, 4 RBI) from seeing regular at bats.
 
4/28/2014 1:29:00 PM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain (15-day disabled list) could return sometime this week, according to general manager Dayton Moore. SOURCE: Andy McCullough, Kansas City Star.
Insight: He's been recovering from a Grade 1 groin strain. Cain was off to a hot start, batting .333 with seven runs scored in 12 games.
 
4/17/2014 7:56:00 PM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain is headed to the 15-day disabled list. SOURCE: Andy McCullough, Kansas City Star
Insight: He suffered a Grade 1 groin strain in Wednesday night's extra inning win over Houston. That's good news for Jarrod Dyson, who will take over center field duties during Cain's absence.
 
8/17/2013 9:05:00 AM
Description: Kansas City outfielder Lorenzo Cain left Wednesday night's game in the 10th inning due to a groin strain.
Insight: Too bad, as Cain is off to one of his best start in four seasons with Kansas City, batting .333 through his first dozen games. He could miss a few days with Jarrod Dyson likely to see more playing time.
 
8/14/2013 11:31:00 AM
Description: Kansas City outfielder Lorenzo Cain, sidelined by a strained left oblique, has no current timetable for returning to the field.
Insight: Cain is only hitting .261 for the season and the team is getting good mileage out of Jarrod Dyson and David Lough.
 
8/1/2013 11:21:00 AM
Description: Kansas City outfielder Lorenzo Cain is back in the lineup Thursday against Minnesota. He's missed the team's last three games because of a groin injury.
Insight: Maybe Cain's .714 lifetime average versus Scott Diamond had something to do with the team's decision to bring him back today. Cain is only hitting .259 for the season but he should be able to improve that Thursday against Diamond.
 
7/4/2013 5:25:00 PM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain had a big day Thursday versus the Indians.
Insight: Cain went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI. The outfielder hit just .183 (19-for-104) with 29 K and a .540 OPS in 29 games from May 25 to June 30, but he has started off July by going 3-for-7 with five RBI, a walk and no strikeouts in two games.
