2018 FANTASY BASEBALL STATUS REPORT: LORENZO CAIN OUTFIELDER MILWAUKEE BREWERS

Having partaken in light jogging and moving close to running the bases, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain is due to return to the team this Wednesday where he will reclaim his spot atop the team's batting order.  Already one of my favorites on a yearly basis, I was a big proponent of drafting the always underrated Cain this spring and that was especially true after his move to the Brewers in free agency where he would operate in a more offensive-centric park.  Cain certainly has not disappointed as he will return to the team with the following overall OF 2 numbers:

.291
8 HR
26 RBI
48 R
16 SB
17.0 K/9
13.1 BB/9
.337 BABIP

At the age of 32, Cain is still very much on top of his game and the fact he is still running at a very high rate with the 16 stolen bases is key for his overall five-category value.  Always a perennial .300 hitter with some modest pop, Cain has actually gone a bit above his career norms in home runs per game but only slightly.  His fantasy baseball owners will take it however and his leadoff slot has once again allowed him to pile up the runs scores.  Add in the always low strikeout and high walk rates and Cain has been tremendous in every sense of the word.  While the injury was a letdown of sorts, Cain should pick up right where he left off as a tremendous OF 2 in all fantasy baseball leagues when he returns.
