Player Notes
While it wasn't the complete sweep that Royals fans had pushed so hard for, four Royals were voted in as starters for the American League squad in the 2015 All-Star game.

Advice: Alcides Escobar and Salvador Perez were each the leading vote getters at their respective positions, while Lorenzo Cain and Alex Gordon finished second and third respectively in the outfield. They'll join Miguel Cabrera, Jose Altuve, Josh Donaldson, Nelson Cruz and Mike Trout as the fan's picks to start the mid-summer classic, though Cabrera is on the disabled list and will not be able to play in the game.

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-3 with a two-run single in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

Advice: Cain has been a hitting machine of late, with multi-hit efforts in four of his last five games. The recent hot streak has propelled his season triple-slash line to .309/.365/.467 and he's also hit six homers and driven in 38 runs. Cain's been very consistent this season and has turned into one of the more dependable players in the game.

Sat, Jul 4 Rotoworld
Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with a double and two singles in Friday's win over the Twins.

Advice: Cain was all over the place in this contest. He would drive in a run with a single in the third inning and score both the game-tying run in the eighth and the game-winning run in the 10th as the Royals improved to 45-32 for the season. He's now racked up nine hits in his last 16 at-bats.

Fri, Jul 3 Rotoworld
Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with two doubles in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Advice: Cain and the Royals' bats were kept pretty well under wraps by Dallas Keuchel, but the outfielder did manage to collect three of the team's eight hits and two of their three extra-base hits on the evening. Alas, they were shut out in the contest. That didn't keep Cain from raising his overall line to .296/.352/.447 with the strong showing.

Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Monday in his return to action against the Astros.

Advice: Cain didn't start Sunday due to a lingering hamstring issue, but he felt good enough to serve as the DH on Monday. He might not be completely out of the woods yet, but it's a good sign.

Tue, Jun 30 Rotoworld
Lorenzo Cain is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday after aggravating his hamstring injury while stealing a base Saturday.

Advice: He missed a few games over the last week with the ailment but had played in two straight after Thursday's off day. Cain is hoping to return to the lineup on Monday. Jarrod Dyson is in center field in his place Sunday.

Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI in his return to the Royals starting lineup on Friday.

Advice: Cain sat out two of the team's previous three contests with a slight hamstring strain. It doesn't sound as though the issue will warrant a trip to the disabled list, but he could require a day off here and there to manage it.
