Royals | Lorenzo Cain diagnosis and timeline

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:21:28 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) was diagnosed with a Grade 1-plus strain of his left hamstring and should not require more than the required time on the 15-day disabled list, according to manager Ned Yost. Yost noted Cain could return Friday, July 15.

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 11:12:59 -0700
