Lorenzo Lamar Cain (born April 13, 1986) is an American professional baseball outfielder for the Kansas City Royals of Major League Baseball (MLB). The Milwaukee Brewers drafted him in the 17th round of the 2004 MLB Draft from Tallahassee Community College in Florida. In 2010, Cain made his MLB debut, and, following the season, the Brewers traded him to Kansas City with three other players for pitcher Zach Greinke.
Four years later, he placed in the top ten in the American League in batting average (.301) and stolen bases (28). Known for his defensive acrobatics, he has won two Wilson Defensive Player of the Year Awards for outfielders and one Fielding Bible Award. Further, he won the 2014 American League Championship Series Most Valuable Player Award due in part to his defensive play.
