Lorenzo Cain Fouls Ball Off Knee

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Lorenzo Cain is listed as day-to-day after fouling a ball off his knee. The injury is not expected to be serious, and they are hopeful he can get back in the lineup tonight with an off-day tomorrow. His replacement is not worth a look if he is not added to the IL.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

According to our projection, you can expect Lorenzo Cain to be a bench player or a good option off the waiver wire. His 66.16 projected fantasy points puts him at #49 behind Gerardo Parra and ahead of Shohei Ohtani. He has averaged 2.63 fantasy points in his past 259 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 2.52 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#114) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 82%, he is the #36 most highly owned outfielder. Lorenzo Cain is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #45 fantasy position rank.
