Lorenzo Cain Injury Update: Royals Outfielder Injures Hip Flexor In Rehab

Lorenzo Cain went to rehab for one injury, but now he’s getting treated for another. After landing on the 15-day disabled list for an injured groin, the Kansas City Royals centerfielder went to AA Northwest Arkansas to rehab the injury. Now he’s ended up hurting with a hip flexor problem.

From the team report, “The Royals had originally expected Cain to return to the club on Friday. That now appears to be wishful thinking, though manager Ned Yost will not speculate until he receives an update from the team doctors.”

“He has to fly back to Kansas City and have it re-evaluated by our doctors,” Yost said. “It was in a different spot. It was a hip flexor, it wasn’t in the groin like it was before. We’ll just see what the doctor says and go from there.”

Mitch Maier and Jason Bourgeois will fill in for Cain while he continues to remain out.
