    • Royals' Lorenzo Cain: In Thursday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cain (wrist) is starting in center field and hitting third Thursday against the Yankees. Cain exited Wednesday's game as a precautionary measure after attempting a diving catch but is ready to play Thursday. Cain, who's hitting .299/.395/.396 for the year, has been dialed in at the plate lately as he's gone 9-for-21 (.429) over the last seven games.

    • Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Lifted as precaution
      By RotoWire Staff

      Manager Ned Yost said he removed Cain as a precaution after he tweaked his left wrist attempting a diving catch, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports reports. Cain was 1-for-2 before being lifted from the contest. It doesn't appear to be anything overly serious, though more should be known Thursday. He should be considered day-to-day until the Royals update his status.

    • Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Swipes 10th base Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cain went 2-for-4 with a double, a run, an RBI and his 10th stolen base of the season in Friday's 3-2 win over the Orioles. The 31-year-old's previous career high for steals is 28, but a perfect 10-for-10 start on the basepaths has him on track to shatter that mark. Cain's power has slipped in 2017 -- he has only one homer so far and a .100 ISO -- but his .292 batting average is right around his career mark, and if he keeps running and drawing more walks, he'll maintain plenty of fantasy value.

    • Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Getting day off Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cain is out of the lineup Thursday against the Rays. Cain has only received one other day off this season, so manager Ned Yost decided that an afternoon contest on getaway day was an optimal time to rest the historically injury-prone outfielder. With Cain out of the lineup, Alex Gordon shifts over to center field while Jorge Bonifacio comes off the bench to slot in left field and bat fifth in the order.

    • Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Inching closer to trade
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Royals are inching closer to a fire sale with each loss, and the prevailing thought is the club can move Cain the easiest, Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe reports. It's no secret that the Royals are likely to unload a slew of pending free agents before the trade deadline. Cain's posted strong numbers this season, and even at 31, he has plenty of tread on the tires. Considering his current team is the worst offense in MLB by many standards, Cain owners should welcome a move with open arms.
