Lorenzo Cain

Some days, it seems as though Lorenzo Cain is everywhere on the diamond. His ability to cover virtually every corner of the outfield, and his prowess with the bat this season, have helped Cain explode as one of the emerging stars in baseball.

Last week was a perfect example of what Cain provides to the Royals. He produced a stellar .423/.483/.654 batting line, with four doubles and a triple. Cain scored four runs, drove in three and stole a base. He was almost entirely the Royals offense last week, as the only player aside from Drew Butera to hit above .300.

During the playoffs last year, the nation got to see Cain’s coming out party. Now, with another year under his belt, Cain is proving to be the type of player that is a true cornerstone for a franchise. As the Royals look to lock up more of their core group, Cain has cemented himself upon that list.

Lorenzo Cain’s excellent week was capped with the announcement that he would be one of the four Kansas City Royals starting the All-Star Game this year. With the way he has played over the past two seasons, Cain may find himself as a part of many more.
