Player Notes
Lorenzo Cain (wrist) is not in the Royals' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Yankees.

Advice: Cain told reporters late Tuesday night that he's been battling a left wrist injury for at least the past two weeks and it causes him discomfort when he tries to swing. Consider him day-to-day for now. Jarrod Dyson is starting in center field on Wednesday night.

Lorenzo Cain acknowledged late Tuesday that he has been playing through a left wrist injury.

Advice: It's been an issue for at least two weeks and causes him pain when he tries to swing, but Cain has pledged to continue battling through it. The 30-year-old center fielder has still managed a relatively productive August, even smacking an RBI double (and stealing a base) in Tuesday night's loss to the Yankees.

Lorenzo Cain homered, walked twice, and scored two runs in Friday’s win over the Red Sox.

Advice: Eric Hosmer and Alex Gordon also went deep in the victory. Cain’s eighth-inning blast off Junichi Tarawa was his first home run since way back on May 31, a span of 191 at-bats. The 30-year-old is batting .290/.337/.414 overall.
