Royals | Lorenzo Cain willing to hit anywhere

Wed, 04 Feb 2015 15:07:37 -0800

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain could hit third in the lineup for the 2015 season, with SS Alcides Escobar at leadoff and OF Alex Rios in the No. 2 spot. Cain hit .321/.367/.429 in the final two weeks of the season last year in the No. 3 position, and he was .333/.388/.417 in the same spot in the playoffs. "I don't remember ever batting third before that," Cain said. "But whatever helps make us go, I'm for it. Once he changed the lineup, we kind of took off. But whatever works, I'm for it."
