Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-3 and hit a home run in today’s Brewers win over the Padres. But he also, unfortunately, left the game in the fifth inning. The team said after the game that it was “ankle discomfort.”
That’s not the most rigorous medical diagnosis possible, so I presume we’ll hear more about his condition tomorrow after he’s reevaluated. For now the Brewers are calling him day-to-day.
Cain is hitting .251/.316/.357 with ten homers on the season.
The Royals and Rangers played the first game of spring training today. A few other teams (the Red Sox, Tigers and Twins) played or are currently playing college squads, but Kansas City-Texas is our first matchup of big league teams. Baseball’s back, baby! And you know what baseball means?
Kansas City’s Jorge Soler, who hit 48 homers last year to lead the American League, offered us the year’s first glimpse at recreational baseball murder when he took Kolby Allard out over the left field yard.
