2019 FANTASY BASEBALL PLAYER ANALYZER: LORENZO CAIN OUTFIELDER MILWAUKEE BREWERS

Sometimes annual MVP candidates can come in non-traditional packages; with an overall excellent game overcoming the tendency for voters to succumb to the appeal of big offensive number candidates.  Such a player in 2018 was Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain who not only once again played Gold Glove defense but also put forth multi-category production which was highlighted by 10 homers, 90 runs scored, 30 stolen bases, and a .308 average.  Severely underrated throughout his career, Cain's advanced metrics all were superb as well as he posted 11.5 BB/9 and 15.2 K/9 rates that helped him become a constant weapon on the bases.  While Cain is aging a bit as he turns 33 in April, he shows no signs of slowing down with his speed and in turn, ability to swipe bases.  It is crucial though that Cain holds onto this skill since a great deal of his fantasy baseball value comes from runs and steals.  Beyond the steals, Cain has been an annual batting average star, with three of his last four seasons ending up with marks over .300.  With Cain also scoring a ton of runs atop a very potent Brewers lineup and remaining capable of reaching double-digits in homers, the guy should continue being a major target for all in 2019 fantasy baseball drafts.  Annually one of our favorites in these pages, count this publication as aggressive Cain hounds.
2019 PROJECTION:  .314 11 HR 45 RBI 98 R 28 SB
