Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Earns day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.

The historically brittle Cain has been a paragon of health this season, with his day off Sunday marking just his fourth absence from the lineup all season. The Royals could look to limit Cain's workload in September if the team falls out of the playoff picture, but for now, fantasy owners should reap the benefits of the outfielder staying healthy and playing effectively. He's batting .268 with 11 home runs and 16 steals in 393 plate appearances this season.

Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Beats Texas with walkoff single
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain went 1-for-5 with a walkoff RBI single in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

Cain struggled for most of this one but delivered when it counted most by getting the tie-breaking hit off Jason Grilli with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Hopefully that clutch piece of hitting gets the veteran outfielder going, as he has churned out just five hits in the past nine games.

Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Enters break on 20-20 pace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain finished the first half of 2017 hitting .274 with 11 home runs and 15 stolen bases, the sixth-most swipes in the AL.

The 31-year-old is on pace to notch a 20-20 season for the first time in his eight-year career. To the contrary, Cain has struggled unlike ever before against left-handers this season; he's hitting just .193 vs. southpaws despite owning a .295 career average against them. That said, the veteran has offset any difference with career-best plate discipline that's allowed Cain to position himself as a strong outfield option across all formats at the break.

Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Ejected from Saturday contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain was ejected Saturday for arguing balls and strikes in the seventh inning.

Alex Gordon slid over to center field, with Whit Merrifield going to left field and Ramon Torres coming into the game at second base. Cain was 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored prior to being tossed. He's been swinging a hot bat since the beginning of June, so any time he's deprived of an extra at-bat probably irritates his fantasy owners.

Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Continues strong run with two-run shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored during Wednesday's win over Seattle.

Cain has posted a .311/.357/.580 slash line with nine homers, 20 RBI and 28 runs through 31 games dating back to the beginning of June. The strong stretch has his fantasy numbers back in line following a slow start, and hitting in the heart of the clicking Kansas City lineup should help Cain continue to tilt the scales across all the traditional rotisserie categories going froward.
