OF Lorenzo Cain opted out of the 2020 season Saturday.
In a statement released on the official Brewers twitter account, “Lorenzo has informed us that he will not participate for the remainder of the 2020 season. We fully support Lorenzo’s decision, and will miss his talents on the baseball field.” The 34-year-old slashed .333/.429/.389 with a double, two RBI and four runs scored across fives games this season. Ben Gamel will be the biggest beneficiary and should see everyday at-bats with Cain out.
