      Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Enjoys two-hit day in wild Saturday victory

      Cain went 2-for-5 with a double, RBI and run scored in Saturday's 8-7 victory over the White Sox. The veteran outfielder continues tearing through May, with Saturday's two-hit tally representing his fifth multi-hit effort over the last seven games. Cain has put a considerably sluggish month of April firmly in the rearview mirror, as he's raised his average 67 points to its current figure of .287. He's also seen his slugging percentage jump up from .293 to .420, in large part due to his six doubles and four homers during the month.

      Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Knocks four hits against Twins

      Cain knocked in a pair of runs as part of a 4-for-5 day Tuesday against the Twins. Cain extended his hitting streak to six games with the performance, the last four of which have been of the multi-hit variety. He doubled to give him four extra-base hits in the streak, and he has now raised his slugging percentage up to .432 after a slow start to the season in the power department. He'll have to maintain this hot streak for a while to get back to his .307/.361/.477 line from last year, but Cain is starting to show the form that made him an MVP candidate last year once again.

      Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Launches solo homer in Saturday victory

      Cain went 2-for-3 with a solo homer in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the White Sox. The 30-year-old had exploded for three homers against the Yankees on May 10, but had been silent with the long ball since that day. The effort Saturday continued a resurgence for Cain in May, during which he's raised his average 51 points and doubled his homer total from April. The talented outfielder is now slashing .329/.367/.534 over 73 at-bats during the month.

      Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Sitting out Sunday

      Cain isn't in the lineup Sunday against the Braves, Josh Vernier of 610 AM Sports Radio reports. Since his three-homer binge against the Yankees on Tuesday, Cain has cooled off a bit, going 4-for-13 with no extra-base hits. Manager Ned Yost will just be giving Cain a maintenance day Sunday, allowing Jarrod Dyson to pick up a start in center field. Look for Cain to be back in his usual No. 2 spot in the order during Monday's series opener with the Red Sox.

      Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Mashes three homers against Yankees

      Cain hammered three home runs and knocked in five home runs in a 3-for-5 game in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees. Cain had just two home runs in 117 at-bats entering Tuesday's game and raised his slugging percentage from .316 to .402 with the outburst. After hitting just 16 home runs in his first three seasons for the Royals, spanning 1,188 plate appearances, he now has 21 home runs in just 730 plate appearances since 2015. Power was never part of Cain's game in the minors or his early career, but he has grown into a player who can't be pitched to like a slap hitter any more.

      Cain went 2-for-4 in Friday's 7-1 loss to the Indians.

Cain hasn't made much impactful contact-- with all but two of his 25 hits on the season being singles-- but he's pulled his average up 43 points since April 25 by hitting safely in seven of his last eight contests. His improving line is up to .243/.304/.301 over 103 at-bats.

      Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Out of lineup Wednesday

      Cain is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels. The All Star center fielder will be getting his first day off of the season Wednesday amid a 4-for-23 slump over the last week. Jarrod Dyson will slide over to take Cain's place in center on Wednesday while Paulo Orlando starts in right against Nick Tropeano and the Angels. Look for Cain to get back into the lineup when the Royals return to action Friday in Seattle.

      Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Homers against Astros

      Cain hit a three-run homer, his second, in Tuesday's win over the Astros. Cain has been the exact opposite hitter from his typical contact-oriented self, as he's hitting .200/.310/.440 with two home runs and nine strikeouts. Things will probably balance out for Cain soon enough, but he showed surprising power last year with 16 home runs, his first season in double-digits, so it's encouraging to see him with two quick dingers here in 2016.
