Cain went 1-for-2 with a solo homer, two walks and two runs in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The slugging outfielder was on base early and often Friday and added an eighth-inning solo shot for good measure. The homer had special significance, considering it was Cain's first since back on May 31 against the Rays. He's put together a solid August, slashing .310/.351/.437 with six doubles and 14 RBI over 87 at-bats.

Cain went 2-for-3 with two walks and an RBI in Monday's 3-1 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Cain has put up consecutive multi-hit performances after exceeding one base knock just once since Jun. 27. His underwhelming season on the base paths continued in this one, as he got picked off first base by reliever Alex Wilson. Cain's nine stolen bases have been a major disappointment following 28-steal campaigns in both 2014 and 2015.

Cain is out of the lineup Thursday against the Rays, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since returning on July 29 from a long absence due to a hamstring injury it seems the Royals will give Cain more strategic days off than prior to the injury in an effort to keep his lower body healthy. Billy Burns will get the start in center field Thursday, hitting eighth.

Cain isn't in the lineup Sunday against the Rangers, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Royals brought back Cain from the disabled list Friday following his recovery from a hamstring injury, but it appears the team wants to ease him back in the fold. As a result, he'll get the afternoon off to rest Sunday after going 0-for-6 with a walk and a stolen base in his first two starts since returning to action. Jarrod Dyson will cover center field while Cain sits.

Cain will be back in the lineup Friday and slotted into his normal third spot in the order while playing right field, FSKC's Joel Goldberg reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cain will work his way back into his normal position in center, but for now the 30-year-old will play in right as the Royals take on the Rangers for Friday night's outing. He was activated off the DL earlier in the day Friday, and his hamstring should be good to go after missing a month of action.

Cain (hamstring) was activated off the 15-day disabled list Friday, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Royals get a much-needed jolt in the field and at the dish with the return of Cain after a month-long absence. Cain was off to an excellent start to the season before going down with the hamstring injury, slashing .290/.336/.416 with 20 XBH and six steals. His return gives the Royals another viable option in the top third of the order. Kansas City optioned Brett Eibner to Triple-A Omaha to clear room for Cain on the active roster.

Cain (hamstring) ran on Friday and said he "felt great", Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's positive news for Cain as he is heading in the right direction as he nears the end of his rehab process. The 30-year-old will run again on Sunday and if he reports positively, will begin a rehab assignment on Monday. The outfielder was starting to hit his stride before landing on the DL at the end of June, slashing .340/.354/.447 in his last 12 games.
