Continued Injury Woes for Lorenzo Cain
This latest injury is another set-back for Lorenzo Cain. After opting out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns, the 35-year old outfielder has struggled to stay healthy. He missed time in Spring Training due to a strained right quad, and missed some time early this season due to another leg injury.
This latest injury is a strained left quad, which he suffered after trying to beat out a groundout in last night’s game. So far this season, Cain is hitting .154/.214/.423 with two home runs and five RBI.
Tyrone Taylor was optioned to the alternate training site following a strong Spring Training. In 19 games this spring, he hit .293/.318/.488 with two home runs and four RBI.
Last season, Taylor spent 22 games with the Big League club. He hit .237/.293/.500 with two home runs and six RBI.
