News: Cain is expected to start Tuesday and Wednesday against the Rockies, who will be starting a couple lefties, the Kansas City Star's Andy McCullough reports. Impact: He is out of the starting lineup Monday for the fourth time in five games, but manager Ned Yost says there's nothing physically wrong with Cain, he just likes the way Jarrod Dyson is swinging the bat. Cain has an .813 OPS against southpaws this season, versus a .713 OPS against righties, but his numbers against righties are still as good or better than Dyson's, so it's got to be a little frustrating for Cain's owners that he now seems to be on the soft side of a platoon in center field.(RotoWire, )

News: Cain is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: Cain will sit for the third time in four days after an 0-for-4, four-strikeout performance Saturday. Despite the golden sombrero, he is still hitting .298/.336/.407 on the season, so his frequent absence from the lineup is a bit puzzling, but given Jarrod Dyson's performance in his place (hitting .291/.336/.355), it wouldn't be surprising to see the time split continue.(RotoWire, )

News: Cain is out of the lineup again Friday, Andy McCollugh of the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: Cain missed Thursday's contest as well and is out Friday again. There isn't any indication of an injury on Cain's part, and the benching isn't likely due to performance, so it's unclear why he is sitting again. Unless there is an underlying injury the team hasn't revealed, Cain will likely rejoin the lineup in the near future.(RotoWire, )

News: Cain is out of the lineup Thursday against the As, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: Cain has started back-to-back games, but will give way to Jarrod Dyson for the third time in the last five contests. This likely isn't performance-based, however, as Cain has hit .303 in August, and is slashing .297/.336/.408 on the year.(RotoWire, )
