Milwaukee Brewers veteran outfielder Lorenzo Cain has been in the league for quite some time now.
The 2015 World Series champion with Kansas City has established himself as a reliable and effective player in the field and at the plate.
As well as a dependable veteran leader in the clubhouse.
Cain is in his fifth season with the Brewers and let’s be real, he’s been struggling since the season started.
This is also a critical season for Cain as he’s in the final year of his contract. And with his struggles at the plate, things aren’t looking too good for our MLBbro.
In 10 games this season, Cain is hitting a dismal .161 with six strikeouts.

Cain does not know what is in store for his future but no matter what he’s going to play his heart out every time he steps on that field.
“I’m still unsure about that right now,” Cain said in an article from www.fox6now.com. “I’m going to go out here and give it my all,” he said. “Hopefully we can get to the playoffs. Hopefully get to the World Series if it is my last year.”
Cain’s teammates know how much of an impact he can make on the field.
“I think everyone in this clubhouse and this organization knows his value to this team on the field and off the field,” infielder Keston Hiura said. “Obviously, we all see what he does on the field defensively and what he does in the clubhouse, I think is even more.”
These past few seasons have been tough for Cain as he’s dealt with numerous injuries last year and plus he sat out most of the COVID-shortened season in 2020.
But one thing Cain has done despite his struggles, is battle through adversity.
During the 2021 season, he finished hitting .257 with eight home runs and 36 RBI. He did that despite missing significant time due to injuries.
When he returned from his injuries last season, Cain wasted no time making an impact on the team.
Cain knows that injuries have played a key role in his absence during his career, and unfortunately that’s just part of the game.
“You know me, I just want to play games and that depends on my health,” Cain said. “If I’m healthy, I’ll be on the field.”
Cain is the type of player who will go full throttle unless he’s in a hospital bed and if he’s on the field then he’ll help out the promising Brewers in positions to win games.
Though he’s been struggling at the start of the season, there’s no doubt that Cain can turn things around.
It’s a long season and the two-time all-star will have plenty of opportunities to make a positive impact for the Brewers and see himself appearing in more games.
