Lorenzo Cain finished 2-for-5 with a home run, a stolen base and two runs scored against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Cain opened the bottom of the first inning with a home run, the Royals' first leadoff homer of the season. The blast was his third of the year. He later stole his seventh base as well, and the talented outfielder is batting .310 with a .770 OPS and appears primed for a productive second half if he can stay healthy.

Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

Cain continues his assault on American League pitching, as he's now batting .331/.369/.441 on the year. The RBI was his 24th of the season, and he's driven in nine runs in his last nine games. Now, if only Ned Yost would move him higher than seventh in the lineup, he might be able to do some real damage.

Lorenzo Cain had an RBI double in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

It was actually a routine grounder to center field, but Cain took second base after nobody was covering the bag. One of just a couple of bright spots in the Royals' lineup, the 28-year-old outfielder is batting .319/.360/.413 with two home runs, 22 RBI, and six stolen bases through 39 games this season. He's worth using in most mixed leagues as long as he's healthy.

Lorenzo Cain is not in the Royals starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

Coming off a monster night where he homered and drove home four, you would have expected to see Cain's name on the lineup card, but it's Jarrod Dyson who will get the call in center field and hit eighth for the Royals. Salvador Perez is also getting the day off, being a day game after a night game.

He wasn't done yet though, as he deposited a J.A. Happ offering over the wall in left for a two-run blast in the seventh inning. The 3-for-4 effort brings him up to .339/.388/.441 in his first 33 games.

Lorenzo Cain went 4-for-4 with a steal and an RBI in Monday's 9-2 loss to the Astros.

Cain hit .333 with a .364 on-base percentage in 12 games before a groin injury in mid-April cost him three weeks. His numbers have been down since his return -- Cain entered this evening batting .279 with a .348 on-base percentage in 17 games since his activation -- but not horribly so. The outfielder, certainly an attractive AL-only option, has six stolen bases and a .327/.376/.402 line over 107 at-bats this year.
