Cain is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The historically brittle Cain has been a paragon of health this season, with his day off Sunday marking just his fourth absence from the lineup all season. The Royals could look to limit Cain's workload in September if the team falls out of the playoff picture, but for now, fantasy owners should reap the benefits of the outfielder staying healthy and playing effectively. He's batting .268 with 11 home runs and 16 steals in 393 plate appearances this season.

Cain went 1-for-5 with a walk-off RBI single in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Cain struggled for most of this one, but delivered when it counted most by getting the tie-breaking hit off Jason Grilli with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Hopefully that clutch piece of hitting gets the veteran outfielder going, as he has churned out just five hits in the past nine games.

Cain finished the first half of 2017 hitting .274 with 11 home runs and 15 stolen bases, the sixth-most swipes in the AL.

EDGE Analysis

The 31-year-old is on pace to notch a 20-20 season for the first time in his eight-year career. To the contrary, Cain has struggled unlike ever before against left-handers this season; he's hitting just .193 vs. southpaws despite owning a .295 career average against them. That said, the veteran has offset any difference with career-best plate discipline that's allowed Cain to position himself as a strong outfield option across all formats at the break.

Cain was ejected Saturday for arguing balls and strikes in the seventh inning.

EDGE Analysis

Alex Gordon slid over to center field, with Whit Merrifield going to left field and Ramon Torres coming into the game at second base. Cain was 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored prior to being tossed. He's been swinging a hot bat since June started, so anytime he's deprived of an extra at-bat probably irritates his fantasy owners.

Cain went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored during Wednesday's win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Cain has posted a .311/.357/.580 slash line with nine homers, 20 RBI and 28 runs through 31 games dating back to the beginning of June. The strong stretch has his fantasy numbers back in line following a slow start, and hitting in the heart of the clicking Kansas City lineup should help Cain continue to tilt the scales across all the traditional rotisserie categories going froward.

Cain is back in the lineup Monday against Seattle, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cain sat Sunday for the first time since May 11. His streak of 46 consecutive games played may be over, but Cain and his sharp .286/.359/.449 slash line are back in the heart of the Royals lineup where they belong.

Cain is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Cain collected three hits while playing in both ends of Saturday's doubleheader, so manager Ned Yost likely just wanted to limit the strain on the outfielder's legs by giving him a day off in the series finale. It will mark Cain's first day out of the lineup since May 11, ending a streak of 46 consecutive starts. Alex Gordon will cover center field in Cain's stead.

Cain went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI against the Angels on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

It was just a continuation of a white-hot California trip for Cain, who now has six home runs on a seven-game road trip. It was also his eighth home run in his past 13 games. He is now slashing .283/.358/.467 on the season in 274 plate appearances.

Cain went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs and a walk in Wednesday's win over San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

The outfielder's eighth-inning homer was part of a back-to-back job with Jorge Bonifacio off Johnny Cueto in the eight inning. Cain is raking through 12 games this month, hitting .333 (16-for-48) with five bombs, 12 RBI and 14 runs.

Cain went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored during Wednesday's win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

With a .262/.345/.381 slash line, four homers and 15 RBI for the campaign, it's been a disappointing followup to 2016's injury-plagued season. Cain has salvaged some of his fantasy value with 12 stolen bases, but the 31-year-old outfielder hardly resembles the hitter who posted an .838 OPS in 2015.
