Latest Update Lorenzo Cain is expected to be back in the lineup Sunday. Sun Jul, 27, 10:44 AM
Is quite toolsy and athletic. Plays good defense in the field and boasts a good power/speed package at bat. His athleticism is a major plus.
Flaws: : Is inconsistent, especially at the plate. Needs more work on his walk/strikeout ratio in order to maximize his offensive production.
And while he might be expected by some, the Royals will not be so accommodating. Despite a five-game hit streak, the Royals will give the always-frail Cain a day off to rest. No one needs him playing five-straight says here and pop a hammy or something so Ned Yost will go with Jarrod Dyson and Norichika Aoki in center and right. Cain should be back in the lineup Tuesday.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Royals are giving Cain a mental break in hopes he can breakout of his one for 26 slump. Despite the recent slump, Candy Cain still has a batting average of .297 and has 12 stolen bases on the season.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
After being replaced by Jarrod Dyson on Saturday with southpaw Rubby De La Rosa on the mound for the Red Sox, the Royals are expected to return Cain to his usual position, manning center field on Sunday. He is in the midst of a 0-for-19 slump, so fantasy owners may want to keep him benched until he snaps out of his current cold streak. Analyst: Matthew Beck
He is suffering through a 0-for-19 slump, and thus Jarrod Dyson will man center for the Royals in their Saturday match up against Boston. Dyson will also slot in at Cain's normal lead off spot in the order.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
