Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Easing into game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain won't get into a Cactus League game until Monday at the earliest, Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.

Cain isn't dealing with any injury, but the Brewers are understandably bringing him along slowly given his age (34) and the fact that he barely played last season after opting out just five games into the campaign. There's no reason at this point to fear that his readiness for Opening Day is under any serious threat.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: In camp as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain is in Brewers camp as expected after opting out of the 2020 season, Andy McCullough of The Athletic reports.

Cain opted out of last season after playing five games, making him one of the highest-profile players to do so. He indicated over the winter that he expected to return to the field and he has indeed made good on that promise. Exactly what he has left in the tank remains to be seen, as he'll turn 35 in April and posted a modest 83 wRC+ (the product of a .260/.325/.372) in his last full season back in 2019.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Should be ready for 2021
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (opt out) is expected to be ready to play in 2021, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Cain was off to a hot start in 2020, but he opted out after just six games. However, manager Craig Counsell said Thursday that Cain has been working out in preparation for the 2021 campaign, and he's expected to be ready to play when the season gets underway. Assuming he plays in 2021, the 34-year-old should serve as the Brewers' starting center fielder once again.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Moved to restricted list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers placed Cain (personal) on the restricted list Saturday.

Cain's addition to the restricted list was a formality after he informed the team Saturday that he would opt out of the 2020 season. The Brewers are expected to proceed with Ben Gamel as their primary center fielder for the remainder of the campaign.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Opts out of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain opted out of the 2020 season Saturday.

Cain was having a nice start to the season at the plate as he started in five of the first six games for Milwaukee, but he'll elect to sit out the remainder of the 2020 season as COVID-19 cases increase around the league. With the 34-year-old sitting out, Ben Gamel should see an increased role in the Brewers' outfield.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain is not starting Wednesday against the Pirates.

Cain has started all five games for the Brewers this season, going 6-for-18 with two RBI and four runs in the process. He'll give way to Ben Gamel in the outfield in Wednesday's series finale.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Collects three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Cubs.

The veteran outfielder secured his first three hits of the season and also had a nifty escape from a pickle during the second inning, eventually leading to Milwaukee's first run of the contest. Cain struggled at the plate last season with a .697 OPS, but he shed some weight during the offseason and is off to a solid start in 2020.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Encouraging spring training results
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain has seen the ball well this spring, going 7-for-18 (.389) with two doubles while striking out just once.

Cain had a trying 2019 campaign, but he was motivated to bounce back, and according to Will Sammon of The Athletic, he shed some weight over the offseason and was one of the first position players to report to camp. The early returns, at least, were promising. Whenever play resumes, Cain will be both the Brewers' regular center fielder and leadoff hitter, but he could move down the order a spot or several when Eric Sogard is also in the lineup.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Making Cactus League debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain will start in center field and bat leadoff Thursday in the Brewers' Cactus League game against the Royals.

Cain will be making his spring debut against his former team after the Brewers deliberately took things slowly with the veteran early in camp after he battled ankle and knee pain at various points in the 2019 season. The injuries contributed to a disappointing second season in Milwaukee for Cain, who finished with fewer than 20 stolen bases for only the second time in six years and saw his OPS fall 115 points from 2018. With some better luck on the health front in his age-34 campaign, Cain could make for an interesting bounce-back candidate.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Healthy heading into spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain has recovered from knee and ankle pain and feels healthy heading into spring training, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The 33-year-old mentioned the possibility of having another thumb injection before the season as a precaution, but he's eager to begin his 11th major-league campaign in full health. Cain served as the Brewers' leadoff hitter for 106 games and finished the season hitting .260/.325/.372 with 75 runs scored and 48 RBI in 2019. With the additions of power-hitting free agents Justin Smoak and Avisail Garcia to Milwaukee's lineup, Cain has a favorable opportunity to score many runs in one of the league's most hitter-friendly ballparks this year.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: In starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's National League Wild Card Game against the Nationals, batting seventh.

The 33-year-old left Saturday's game with a sprained left ankle and is now ready to return to Milwaukee's starting lineup against right-hander Max Scherzer. In his last seven games, Cain is slashing .524/.565/.810 with a home run and three RBI.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Active for wild-card game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (ankle) is on the Brewers' wild-card roster, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Cain left Saturday's game with a sprained left ankle, though he expected to be ready to go for Tuesday's game against the Nationals. It remains to be seen whether or not he's in the starting lineup, but the Brewers likely wouldn't have carried him if they didn't expect him to be ready to play.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Expects to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (ankle) expects to play in Tuesday's Wild Card game against the Nationals, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

Cain left Saturday's game with a sprained ankle and did not take part in Sunday's contest, but the issue doesn't appear to be a serious one. He'll still have to test the ankle prior to the game, though, as he hasn't officially been cleared yet. Ben Gamel would likely get a start in the outfield if Cain is unable to play.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Missing regular-season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (ankle) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.

Cain's sprained left ankle will keep him on the bench for the regular-season finale, but the Brewers are holding out hope he'll be able to make it back in action for the postseason. With Ryan Braun (calf) also sitting out the finale, Cory Spangenberg and Ben Gamel will be pressed into duty alongside Trent Grisham in the Milwaukee outfield.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Dealing with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain was removed from Saturday's game against the Rockies with a left ankle sprain.

Cain already entered the contest banged up and aggravated his injured left ankle on a slide into home plate as he was thrown out during the ninth inning. The veteran outfielder went 2-for-3 with a walk and a double before leaving the game and had a pair of sensational catches in the outfield, including a home-run robbery to preserve the lead. The Brewers are already without Christian Yelich (kneecap) for the year and Ryan Braun is also dealing with a calf strain, leaving the team with few options in the outfield for the final game of the regular season.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

Cain hit his 11th homer of the season in the fourth inning, giving the Brewers a 2-1 lead. He's now batting .258/.322/.369 in what's been a tough injury-filled season.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Sits after clincher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain is not in Thursday's lineup against the Reds.

He has been playing hurt for most of the season and ran into the center-field wall in Wednesday's playoff-clinching win, so it's no surprise to see him head to the bench for the day game. Trent Grisham will start in center field while leading off.

September 20, 2019 05:16 PM
Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: In Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (ankle) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates.

Cain left Thursday's game with a sore ankle, and he has been playing through a sore knee for a while, but neither injury will prevent him from taking the field Friday night. Cain will man center field and hit leadoff against Pirates starter Steven Brault.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Day-to-day with ankle discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain is being considered day-to-day after leaving Thursday's game against the Padres with left ankle discomfort, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Cain was forced to exit Thursday's contest as a result of the issue, but it doesn't appear to be overly serious. His availability for Friday's series opener against Pittsburgh will likely be determined after he's re-evaluated.

September 20, 2019 01:16 AM
Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Exits with sore ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain left Thursday's game against the Padres with left ankle discomfort.

Cain hit his second home run in three games prior to exiting, but he was unable to finish the contest due to his injury and was replaced by Trent Grisham. Cain's status will be updated again when more information is released.
