Lorenzo Cain CF/RF KC 2 Months

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.

Lorenzo Cain (groin) will be placed on the disabled list.

It's not a big surprise, as Cain left Wednesday's game against the Astros with a Grade 1 groin strain. He's hoping to return in two weeks, but won't rush things. Jarrod Dyson should see and uptick in playing time during his absence and is worth picking up for fantasy owners who need speed.

That's the least severe type of strain, but Cain could still be looking at an extended absence.
