Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain developing more power at the plate
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain isn't considered a power hitter by any means. Cain has never hit more than seven home runs in any of his five seasons, but manager Ned Yost thinks he's capable of more, reports MLB.com.

"I think that would be a good bet," Yost said. "… I think he's capable of hitting 15. I really do. He's got a lot of power. You watch him in [batting practice] and he'll hit some vicious line drives as well as hitting the ball out of the park."

Yost just wants to see Cain add the power to become a more complete hitter in 2015.

"He's a more complete hitter than he ever has been," Yost said. "I thought there was a point in time where he could hit 20 in a year. But that would take away from who he is."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Royals manager Ned Yost listed Lorenzo Cain, Alex Gordon, Eric Hosmer and Alex Rios as viable candidates to bat second in the lineup this season, reports the Kansas City Star.

Gordon, Rios never batted second last season. Cain had only only 13 plate appearances at the No. 2 spot in 2014. Hosmer played 33 games and logged 144 plate appearance at the No. 2 spot in 2014, slashing .275/.326/.344 in those appearances.

Yost: Royals might bat Lorenzo Cain third in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Royals had a lot of success late last season when manager Ned Yost reshuffled the top of his batting order to feature Alcides Escobar, Norichika Aoki and Lorenzo Cain, per MLB.com. 

"It worked," Yost said. "But we may try some different things this year. We'll see."

Well, Yost will certainly have to find a new No. 2 batter since Aoki is now with the Giants. However, Yost hinted Cain could stay in the third spot in the lineup.

"It could be Lorenzo," Yost said. "I mean, what he did last year in that spot was phenomenal."

Cain hit .321 with a .367 on-base percentage and .429 slugging percentage batting third over the final 14 regular-season games. He then hit .333 with a .388 on-base percentage and .417 slugging percentage batting third in the playoffs.

"I don't remember ever batting third before that," Cain said. "But whatever helps make us go, I'm for it. Once he changed the lineup, we kind of took off. But whatever works, I'm for it.

"I know it requires a guy to drive in some runs. We'll see. We got a few more power guys now. I might be hitting in the eight-hole next season. You never know. I mean, I only hit five home runs last year."
