Royals | Lorenzo Cain breaks out of slump

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:26:09 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-1 win over the Houston Astros Sunday, July 26, recording his first multi-hit effort since July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) had gone 3-for-21 in his previous five games, but he found his stroke Sunday. Cain's all-around production makes him a solid option at FantasyScore most days, and he is a great play against left-handed pitching.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain has the day off

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:16:07 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is out of the lineup Saturday, July 25, with OF Jarrod Dyson hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting just .229 this month. While he has eight hits in July, he also has seven steals. It's hard to play someone on FantasyScore for steals only, so avoid him for now.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain on a tear

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 17:57:13 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-4 with a home run in a 4-1 win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday, July 19, and he is hitting .473 with four home runs and 12 RBI in his last 14 games.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was able to continue his recent surge despite facing Chris Sale, and he continues to be a borderline must-start option for the price against lefties at FantasyScore.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain ends marathon game

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 17:20:47 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain hit a go-ahead home run in the 13th inning in a 7-6 win over the Chicago White Sox Saturday, July 18, finishing 3-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored and two walks.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) continued his solid season, and his batting average is up to .322. He is on pace to score more than 100 runs and steal more than 30 bases, and he makes a solid mid-priced option at FantasyScore against most opponents. Cain is particularly useful against lefties, but even he will be shaky option Sunday when Chris Sale takes the mound for the White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,500; or 9.0% of cap) is on a roll and is a tremendous FantasyScore value heading into the second half.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain living on base

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 13:28:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain has a .469 on-base percentage over his past 23 games and 96 plate appearances. During the run, he has 17 runs, four home runs, 18 RBI, seven stolen bases and a .405 batting average. His OBP leads all qualified hitters over the past 30 days.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is in the midst of his breakout season with 54 runs, eight home runs, 42 RBI, 17 stolen bases and a .316/.373/.491 slash line. He checks out as a solid second-tier outfielder, and there is plenty of profit room in his current FantasyScore salary.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain out of the lineup

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 09:03:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Saturday, July 11. OF Jarrod Dyson will start in center field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Dyson ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has four hits and two RBI in his last four games and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain returns to the lineup

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 15:27:13 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) is batting third against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Wednesday, July 8.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has missed the past three games, and he faces a daunting matchup against Archer. FantasyScore players should view him as a high-risk, high-reward option Wednesday.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain out again

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 16:57:51 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) is out for Game 2 of the team's doubleheader Tuesday, July 7. OF Jarrod Dyson will start in center field again and hit ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is known for his speed, but he has struggled to get on base to utilize his quickness. Hitting at the bottom of the order also limits his daily value. Consider him a low-end outfield play on FantasyScore.
