LoCain Designated For Assignment | Could Be Final MLB Season

LoCain Designated For Assignment | Could Be Final MLB Season

Here is a tip of the cap to Lorenzo Cain who was Designated For Assignment by the Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend in what could be his last season in the majors.

Cain’s time in Milwaukee came to an end Saturday after hitting .179 with a .231 on base percentage, nine RBI, two steals and a home run through 43 games this season.

Injuries have plagued Cain over the last three seasons as he only played in 126 games over that span.

Regardless of how it ended, Cain will be remembered as one of baseball’s best outfielders to play during the 2010s.

After signing a five-year $80 million deal with the Brewers before the 2018 season, Cain hit .270 with 30 home runs, 133 RBI and 63 steals in four seasons with the team.

He made the All-Star team for the second time in his career in 2018 and won the only Gold Glove of his career in 2019, the same year he opened with what may be the best catch of his career as he robbed a home run for the final out of a one run game on Opening Day.

Cain was originally drafted by the Brewers in the 17th round of the 2004 draft out of Tallahassee Community College.

He made his debut in 2010, playing in 43 games and batting .306 for Milaukee.

Then before the 2011 season he was traded to the Kansas City Royals as part of one of the most important trades in their franchise history, when then Ace Zack Greinke was sent to the Brewers in exchange for Cain, former MLBbro reliever Jeremy Jeffress and Alcides Escobar.

All three players played major roles during the Royals World Series Championship run which may have been one of the most improbable in recent sports history.

In 2014, the year the Royals would ultimately end up losing in the World Series to the San Francisco Giants Cain hit .301 and stole 28 bases.

His four hits in the American League Championship Series against Baltimore tied him with George Brett for most in a playoff game in franchise history as he would go on to win the series MVP award.

Then after making his first All-Star team in 2015, finishing with what are still career highs in RBI, doubles, triples and home runs, he helped lead Kansas City to their second World Series in franchise history.

Cain respected the game and for that the Brewers showed it back with one of the classiest moves you will ever see by a professional organization.

By waiting until Cain got his full 10 years of service time in Major League Baseball he is able to receive his full vested pension which will pay him $7,500 a month.

There is still a chance Cain can be traded or picked up by another team, but that remains to be seen as he has said he wanted to take time to speak with family about his next steps.

The Brewers called up MLBbro outfielder Jonathan Davis from Triple A Nashville to take Cain’s roster spot.

Lorenzo Cain’s Hit Set The Tone | Brew Crew Takes Game 1 ALDS Win

MLBbro Lorenzo Cain made his first playoff appearance since 2019 as the Milwaukee Brewers took on the Atlanta Braves in Game 1 of the National League Division Series.

Cain is looking to win his second World Series title and help the Milwaukee Brewers win their first. The Milwaukee Braves last won the World Series in 1957.

The Brewers were able to come away with a 2-1 victory, but it wasn’t easy.

Cain got the start in center field for Milwaukee and delivered the team’s first hit which came in the bottom of the third inning off of Charlie Morton.

His single to right field ignited the Brewers’ offense which came alive during the seventh inning.

Milwaukee scored two runs in the seventh and were able to hold on to the lead throughout the game.

Cain finished the game going 1-for-3 and played a solid center field.

In his last playoff appearance back in 2019, he only appeared in one game and went 1-for-4 against the Washington Nationals.

This postseason, Cain will most likely appear in more games and it’s a plus that he’s back to full health after battling with multiple injuries during the regular season.

There was a point during the season where Cain’s availability was up in the air. But this brother is a competitor and is going to do whatever it takes to get on that field and put his team in the best position to win games.

Milwaukee is two wins away from advancing to the National League Championship Series and Game 2 will be Saturday with a 5:07 p.m. ET start.

Look for Cain to continue to have success at the plate this series and provide a spark for the Brewers.

Welcome Back Lorenzo Cain |  The MLBbro Is On A Tear Since Returning From IL

Welcome Back Lorenzo Cain | The MLBbro Is On A Tear Since Returning From IL

Lorenzo Cain is back, ladies and gentleman. The Milwaukee Brewers veteran outfielder made his return from the injured list on July 27th.

The last time he played before that was May 31st. He went on the injured list after suffering a strained right hamstring. We know an injured hamstring is nothing to play with and you can’t rush back from an injury like that. 

The former Gold Glove winner was upset about the injury, but his return has been loud and effective. LoCain has recorded a hit in 10 of his last 11 games and it’s looking like that injury is no longer bothering him.



In his first game back, he went 2-for-5 with an RBI against the Pittsburgh Pirates. A nice way to return from the injured list right there.

He went on a six-game hitting streak when he returned and during that span he hit .391 with six RBI. This is vintage Cain right here and he’s on a mission.

Cain, a 2015 World Series champ with the Royals, is a competitor and a champion. Though he was sidelined for a while, he put the work in to get himself back to where he needed to be. 

Cain also knows what it takes to win. He played an important role on that World Series team and now he’s in a position to help the Brewers make a push for the playoffs.

He chose to pass on the 2020 season due to personal reasons and the COVID-19 pandemic.



When the 2021 season started for Cain, he struggled a lot at the plate. It just seemed as if everything was going wrong for the 35-year-old.

At the end of April he was only hitting .154 and it seemed as if he would struggle throughout the season.

But never doubt this brother. He’s now hitting .257 through 42 games and in his last seven games he’s hit .280 with a .400 slugging percentage. If Cain can remian helthy throughout the season, he will be a vital piece to this Brewers’ lineup.

Regardless of the noise he makes with his bat, Cain’s fielding  ranks at the top 1 percent in the league among outfielders. 



At his age, Cain can still run at a high-level, that’s why it’ll be important for him to monitor that hamstring because he definitely does not want to miss any more games.

Cain is in his fourth season with the Brewers and he has put up impressive numbers since joining the team. If he can keep his body right, Cain will play a significant role heading into October for the Brewers and that championship experience is something that the team will need for sure.

It’s pretty obvious. If he continues this hot streak he’s having, the Brewers will continue to have success.
