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.

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.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Not in Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.

Cain homered Tuesday for the first time since July 31, but manager Craig Counsell decided to hold him out Wednesday as loads up on left-handed hitters against Padres righty Dinelson Lamet. Trent Grisham will cover center field for the Brewers on Wednesday night, and Ben Gamel will take Grisham's spot in right field.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Marlins.

He has been in the lineup six days in a row, so it's not surprising to see Cain get a rest day. He hit .318 with zero home runs and zero steals in 22 at-bats over that stretch. Trent Grisham starts in center field while Ben Gamel gets the nod in right field.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Three hits in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Monday's victory over the Marlins.

Cain is playing through a balky knee, but that did not stop him from reaching base three times Monday, and nine times over the last four games he started. Cain's numbers have slipped from last season, but he has hit better since the All-Star break, hitting .273/.353/.364 after putting up a .246/.309/.352 slash line in the first half. The sore knee could lead to Cain getting rest here and there the rest of the way, but with the Brewers still in the playoff hunt, expect him to take the field as much as possible.

Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Back in center field Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (knee) is leading off and starting in center field Sunday versus the Cubs.

Cain was withheld from Saturday's starting nine due to recurring knee soreness, though he did make an appearance as a pinch hitter. The 33-year-old has been battling lower-body issues for a good chunk of the year and seems as though he'll just have to fight through the injuries for the home stretch.

September 7, 2019 05:12 PM
Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

Cain returned to the lineup Thursday after missing several games, but apparently his knee is still hurting, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The 33-year-old has been dealing with lower-body issues for most of the season, and it shows in his numbers. Trent Grisham is in center field for the third game of the series.

September 5, 2019 03:48 PM
Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (knee) is starting in center field and leading off Thursday against the Cubs.

It seems like Cain has been playing through lower-body issues all season. This knee issue has come and gone and may be more about pain tolerance than anything else. He will try to play as much as possible while the Brewers remain in the playoff race.

September 3, 2019 04:20 PM
Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cain (knee) isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Houston.

Cain is still battling a knee injury, and he's set to miss his fourth straight game as a result. Milwaukee has a scheduled off day Wednesday, so he'll receive another day to rest before attempting to take the field for Thursday's series opener against the Cubs.
