Making The Case For Lorenzo Cain

Lorenzo Cain may not be the prototypical number three hitter, but he is earning his stripes. He has shown that 2014 wasn’t a fluke, and he may be even better this season. He is a fun player to watch, and again has produced as his manager hoped when he slotted him in the line-up in the third slot.

His numbers show why he is such an integral part of this team, not even counting his spectacular glove work.

  • Runs Batted In – 19 – tied for 4th
  • Runs Scored – 27 – 2nd
  • Stolen Bases – 6 – 1st
  • Batting Average – .316 – third
  • Doubles – 8 – tied for 5th
  • Hits –  – 4th

Lorenzo Cain has been immensely important to the success of the Royals this season. He has really stepped up his game, and now is on the brink of stardom.
