Cain went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in a 5-0 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

Cain found his way on base with a pair of singles, then got to enjoy coming around on a pair of Kendrys Morales homers. His season numbers still look sharp, but after a huge start, Cain has homered just once in his last 28 contests. Still, as long as he keeps hitting for average -- he's still at .311 -- and piling up steals and runs, fantasy owners won't complain.

Cain went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and five RBI in Friday's win over the Yankees

Cain got the day off on Thursday and it seemed to payoff. Cain drove in five runs on Friday and bumped his average to .326 to go along with three long balls and 19 RBI. Cain is one of the many reasons why the Royals lead the league in batting average, and he should continue to produce moving forward.

Cain is not in the lineup against the Rangers on Thursday, Andy McCullough of the KC Star reports.

It looks like a scheduled day off for Cain, who has started the last eight games in center field. He'll give way to Jarrod Dyson, who will bat in the nine hole against Rangers' starter Ross Detwiler. After a hot start - .329 average in April - Cain has regressed a bit in March (.279 average), but he's still hitting .312 with 14 RBI on the season.

Cain will begin serving his two-game suspension Sunday.

Cain originally appealed the decision and was in Saturday's lineup, but will drop that appeal and take a seat Sunday afternoon. With a team day off scheduled Monday, Cain will be eligible for reinstatement prior to Wednesday's matchup with the Indians. Jarrod Dyson will likely see his reps in center field until then.

Cain will appeal the two-game suspension he received from MLB on Saturday for his involvement in Thursday's brawl with the White Sox, the Kansas City Star reports.

The appeals process often takes more than a few days to play out, but it's very rare that MLB reduces the punishment for players upon appeal.

Cain has been suspended two games, effective Sunday, for his role in a brawl with the White Sox on Thursday.

Cain was also fined an undisclosed amount for his role in the fight, which escalated when Yordano Ventura and Adam Eaton began barking at each other in the eighth inning. One of five players ejected from the game Thursday, Cain will be forced to sit out two more contests, with Jarrod Dyson representing the most likely candidate to fill in for him in center field.

Cain was ejected between the seventh and eighth inning of Thursday's game against the White Sox, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Cain was one of the main members of a benches-clearing situation between the Royals ad White Sox on Thursday, and was ejected along with teammates Yordano Ventura and Edinson Volquez and two other White Sox's players. It's unclear if suspensions are looming for those involved, but the situation should clear up in the next couple days. He finished Thursday's contest 1-for-3 with a run scored, and was replaced in center field by Jarrod Dyson.

Cain is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Twins.

Cain hasn't received a day off this season, so it appears Monday is just a regular rest day after the 29-year-old was hit by pitch in Sunday's contest. Jarrod Dyson will slide over to center field while Paulo Orlando will assume the right field duties.
