Cain went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and a stolen base in Sunday's victory over the Pirates. Cain did not start the previous three games, but he was able to pinch hit Saturday night and return to the lineup a day later. Following Sunday's game, Cain owns 29 steals and a .308 batting average on the season. He could get added rest before the regular season ends if the Brewers are able to lock up a playoff spot by the middle of the week, but he otherwise figures to be in the lineup every day.
Cain (ribs) is back in the lineup Sunday against the Pirates. Cain left Tuesday's game with intercostal soreness and missed three straight starts. He appeared off the bench Saturday and will be a full participant Sunday, batting third and playing center field.
Cain (ribs) took indoor swings before and during Milwaukee's Saturday game and didn't report any issues, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Manager Craig Counsell called this a "good sign," and Rosiak wrote "Getting him back [Sunday] would be big" for [the] Brewers, so that possibility is in play. Cain hasn't played since he left Tuesday's contest with the injury.
Cain (ribs) remains out of the lineup for Friday's game in Pittsburgh. Cain was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Reds with intercostal soreness and did not appear in Wednesday's game. Christian Yelich will slide over to center field in his absence, with Curtis Granderson starting in right.
Cain (ribs) is not in the lineup against Cincinnati on Wednesday. Cain will be withheld from the starting lineup after leaving Tuesday's outing with intercostal soreness after the fourth inning. He will benefit from a scheduled day off Thursday and should be considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's series opener in Pittsburgh.
