Royals' Lorenzo Cain on White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija: Not a fan


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) After the Royals and White Sox were involved in a benches-clearing incident Thursday, Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain said Jeff Samardzija's antics played a part in the incident, reports the Chicago Tribune.

"For me, I'm not a big fan of him," Cain said. "I don't know what the deal is."

Royals infielder Christian Colon said Samardzija was talking from the dugout, which helped escalate the brawl.

"He's just in there running his mouth," Colon said. "I don't know about what. This is Oakland A's stuff, when he was in the wild-card game, yelling at Ventura on the mound. I don't get it."

Samardzija was not made available to reporters after the game.


Five ejected from White Sox-Royals Thursday after brawl


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) A comebacker by White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton to Royals starter Yordano Ventura for the final out in the seventh inning ignited a benches-clearing brawl in Thursday's game between the two teams, resulting in five players getting ejected.

Ventura could be seen mouthing an expletive to Eaton, taking apparent umbridge with the comebacker or something that Eaton may have said on his way to first base. After the ruckus was finally settled, the umpires ejected Ventura along with outfielder Lorenzo Cain and pitcher Edinson Volquez. White Sox starter Chris Sale and teammate Jeff Samardzija were also hit with ejections, ending the night of both starting pitchers in one fell swoop.

Ventura, who was ejected for the second time this season and is likely facing a lengthy suspension, finished the night with two earned runs on five hits and one walk in seven innings along with eight strikeouts.

Sale threw 70 of his 99 pitches for strikes but managed to rack up just two strikeouts before being ejected. He also allowed two earned runs on nine hits and one walk in seven innings of work.

Play resumed in the top of the eighth inning with the two teams tied 2-2.

Royals SS Alcides Escobar back in the lineup, Lorenzo Cain out


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar is back in the starting lineup Monday against the Twins after missing last two games with a knee injury, according to 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City.

Royals OF Lorenzo Cain raises cain in defeat to Twins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Sizzling outfielder Lorenzo Cain was a one-man wrecking crew for the Royals in Minnesota on Thursday. He was also one of the few offensive bright spots in a defeat.

Cain gave his team a brief lead in the first with a two-run homer, his second of this season after hitting just five all of last year. He singled and scored in the third, walked in the fifth and doubled in a run and scored in the ninth. He even added a stolen base for good measure.

When the smoke cleared, Cain owned a ridiculous slash line of .429/.512/.714 with two home runs and 10 RBI.


Royals' Lorenzo Cain sticking in center field


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain will stick in center field despite Jarrod Dyson assuming more of a regular role with right fielder Alex Rios sidelined, MLB.com reports.

Last season, Dyson would play center field when he entered the game, with Cain shifting to right field. However, manager Ned Yost said he likes the alignment of the outfield with Cain in center.

"We played Dyson in right the last month in Spring Training," Yost said. "Cain is at home in center. Dyson has a right fielder's arm. We did that last year to protect Lorenzo's legs so he didn't have to cover the big gaps. [Coach] Rusty [Kuntz] worked really hard with Dyson in right this spring so we didn't have to be shifting Cain all the time. In my mind I got three center fielders in Cain, Dyson and [Paulo] Orlando. I don't know if I've ever had that before. But Cain is arguably the best center fielder in the game."

With the news, Cain will remain eligible for the Gold Glove in center field, as players must play at least 75 percent of their innings at one position to be eligible.
