    • Lorenzo Cain: Dismisses qualifying offer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cain rejected the Royals' qualifying offer and has officially become a free agent, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports. Cain was expected to decline the club's offer, and now that he has, the 31-year-old will test the free-agent market. He's likely looking for a multi-year deal after spending the past seven seasons in Kansas City. During the 2017 campaign, he slashed .300/.363/.440 with 15 home runs and 26 steals on 28 attempts.

    • The Royals made a qualifying offer to Cain prior to Monday's deadline, the Kansas City Star reports. Cain is one of three Royals players who received the offer ($17.4 million for the 2018 season), but all three are expected to test the waters of free agency and receive multi-year deals. Following a career-high 155 games played in a healthy 2017 campaign, the 31-year-old figures to be of interest to clubs seeking a big upgrade in center field this winter. Cain finished the season with 15 homers and 26 steals along with a .300/.363/.440 line in 645 plate appearances.

    • Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Night off Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cain is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. It had been previously announced that the Royals planned to give Cain the night off, so his absence from the lineup comes as no surprise. Over 23 games in September, Cain has posted a stellar .369/.424/.512 line. Although Cain is expected to be back in action Thursday, Paulo Orlando will head to center field Wednesday night.

    • Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Won't start Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cain will not start Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports reports. The Royals are eliminated from playoff contention, so Cain will get Wednesday off as manager Ned Yost rests some of his regular starters. The 31-year-old, who has compiled a healthy .301/.363/.445 line with 15 homers and 25 stolen bases in 150 games this season, is expected to start the Royals' remaining four games following Wednesday's day off.

    • Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Hits 15th long ball
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cain went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Sunday's 8-1 loss to the White Sox. Cain's third-inning long ball off starter Lucas Giolito was all the offense his team could muster in this one. He's just one home run shy of matching his career high of 16 from 2015 and needs only three more steals to reach his previous high of 28.
