Royals | Lorenzo Cain diagnosis and timeline

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:21:28 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) was diagnosed with a Grade 1-plus strain of his left hamstring and should not require more than the required time on the 15-day disabled list, according to manager Ned Yost. Yost noted Cain could return Friday, July 15.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Cain's fantasy owners, and the center fielder should be stashed in all seasonal leagues. Brett Eibner could see some fleeting value, but it's likely Jarrod Dyson who will benefit the most while Cain is inactive. For now, Dyson is a viable option in the majority of seasonal leagues because of his speed. Stay tuned for updates on Cain's recovery and return timeline.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain to DL

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 11:12:59 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. OF Brett Eibner was recalled from Class AAA Omaha.

Fantasy Tip: Eibner has a .288-11-32 line in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. The right-handed hitter could platoon with left-handed hitting Jarrod Dyson. Both are AL-only options with Dyson having the slight upper hand due to his 12 steals. There is no word on how long Cain will be out, but he'll be out until after the All-Star break. Keep him stashed in all formats.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain injures hamstring

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 05:15:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) left the game Tuesday, June 28, with a strained left hamstring. He'll have an MRI, but the team doesn't know how severe the strain might be until then.

Fantasy Tip: Jarrod Dyson is likely to see extended time with Cain probably out at least a few days. He's hitting just .252, but he has 12 steals on the year and can contribute with his wheels. He should be picked up in most formats just in case Cain lands on the DL.

Royals | KC in for tough time tonight?

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 13:10:44 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is hitting just .192 with two RBI in the last five years over 26 at-bats against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber, who he faces Wednesday, June 15. SS Alcides Escobar is batting .190 in 42 at-bats against Kluber. 1B Kendrys Morales is hitting .150 with an RBI in 20 at-bats and C Salvador Perez is hitting .160 with two RBI in 25 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Cain and Perez are must-starts in all fantasy formats despite the sketchy history against the Klubot in recent times. Escobar is useful for his speed in deeper leagues but doesn't contribute much else and is a weak daily pick. Morales is having a down year but has been unfortunate in the BABIP column to date. Look to buy low on him in seasonal leagues if you can.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain sparks KC comeback win

Sun, 29 May 2016 14:39:57 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain finished 2-for-4, including a solo home run to begin a three-run rally in the eighth inning, with two RBI and two runs scored in a 5-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: After batting a meager .220 with two homers and eight RBI in April, Cain is hitting a cool .350 with five home runs and 20 RBI in May. He's been even better over the last eight contests, collecting six multi-hit games while batting .424 over that stretch. With all the injuries Kansas City is facing at the moment, it will need Cain to keep producing. So far, he has been up to the task. Keep riding his hot bat as the Royals host the Tampa Bay Rays over the next three days.
