Fantasy Impact: Cain's batting average has come back down to earth a bit and he is now hitting .312. As long as he does not fall into a slump, he should be able to keep his average over .300. He remains a starter in larger fantasy leagues.

Lorenzo Cain's mini slump continues

On Thursday, Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-5 with one run scored and stole one base in an 8-1 Royals win over the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact: Cain's batting average is still well over .300 (.329), but it has dipped a bit in the past week. With that said, he's still a must-own fantasy player right now as long as this slump doesn't continue. You may want to consider other options (if you have any) for now, though, in your outfield and/or utility/flex positions as long as his bat continues to go cold.

Fantasy Impact: Cain seems to be starting right where he left off last year and is becoming a sleeper fantasy option. If he continues to have a high average and steal bases he will become a starter in most leagues.

In an effort to improve their power numbers, Royals manager Ned Yost has said that Lorenzo Cain "is strong enough and experienced enough to hit around 10-15 homers". (Source:

Fantasy Impact: The Royals center fielder has never hit more than 7 home runs. He batted .301 with 5 HR & 28 SB last year. An extra 5-10 HR will boost his value significantly.

Royals' CF Lorenzo Cain has a .407 AVG after going 2-for-4 with a run & an RBI in Friday's Cactus League victory over the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Look for Lorenzo Cain to build on his breakout season of 2014. A repeat of his .301 AVG with 5 HR & 28 SB would provide good roto value for a late round pick.
