Cain (hamstring) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Rays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cain (hamstring) remains out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rays, Matthew DeFranks of Sports Radio 810 reports.

An aggravation of the hamstring issue that limited Cain at the end of June kept him out for the first game of the twin bill, and he will sit out the nightcap as well with the team looking to avoid any further setbacks. Jarrod Dyson will get the start in center after Paulo Orlando got the nod in Game 1. Consider Cain day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's tilt.

Cain (hamstring) is not in the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rays, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

Cain was not in the lineup for Monday's game, which was ultimately postponed because of rain. It's possible he'll be back for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader, but it seems more likely that he gets the full day off. Paulo Orlando will start the first game in center field.

Cain is out of the lineup Monday against the Rays after he aggravated a hamstring injury in Sunday's game, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.

Cain missed one game last week due to the hamstring injury, and the Royals are hoping it's a similarly minor setback this time around. Nonetheless, the team still opted to recall Paulo Orlando from Triple-A Omaha to provide some more outfield depth in the short term, though it's Jarrod Dyson who will enter the lineup Monday with Cain unavailable.

Cain (hamstring) is starting at designated hitter and batting third, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

With Cain still recovering from his hamstring injury, he returns to the lineup, but as the designated hitter. With Eric Hosmer in line for a few days off, Cain could continue filling in as the designated hitter until his hamstring is fully healed.

Cain is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics after tweaking his hamstring in Saturday's game, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

The hamstring issue kept Cain out of the lineup last Wednesday, but he only needed one game off before returning to action during the series. Manager Ned Yost said that Cain aggravated the injury when he stole third base Saturday, but it doesn't sound like this latest setback is a notable one. Yost anticipates that Cain will be back in the lineup Monday, when the Royals kick off a series with the Astros.

Cain (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in his return to the lineup Friday night.

While it's a good sign that he played all nine innings Friday, the Royals may opt to continue to giving him extra rest in the coming days to ensure that the ailment doesn't linger. In those instances, Jarrod Dyson figures to handle the available time in center field.
