Curious about his potential power here ... he belted 7 HR in 224 ABs last season in the majors, this was done while dealing with nagging leg injuries

In the PCL in 2011 he hit 16 HRs in 487 ABs... hard to judge

He came on pretty strong after the injury for a lil bit IIRC, I'm definitely interested to see where he goes. Just a guess, but he could be a nice value later in draft, I'm thinking something like DeAza from last yr in terms of adp.

Cain is one of my favorite players. He has struggled with injuries in his career, if he ever stays healthy his potential is huge. Worth a pick because of what he could do. He is a 20/20 threat that you can get as 3rd or 4th outfielder.

de Aza is a decent comp. he's got gap power but more of a 10-12 than 18-20 based on his milb track record. but he's had a million injuries so maybe his growth has been delayed.

he strikes out too much for a guy without a lot of power. he's an AVG liability and it leaves him prone to slumps and benchings. if they want to compete this year, they're not going to settle with running bad Cain out there everyday.

.260/10/30 sounds right. not sure he can stick atop the lineup but a de Aza 2012 is possible if he can.

I will never draft Francisco Liriano ever again.

I am intrigued by the power potential. He does K too much and doesn't see a lot of pitches. Good LD%, but a low FB% along with the poor walk/k percentages should limit it some. He has the frame you look for though. I think that he COULD be a 20/20 threat, but we're more likely to see the stat line posted above by jsp. I'll take a shot in the latter part of the draft. Love me some LoCain!

I like him as a nice across the board contributor, not expecting major power, I would hope 14-18 range? Plug him in the OF4-5 spot, contribute bags without being complete liability power wise.

Its officially the start of fantasy baseball season when the Cain thread starts getting more replies. BTW his floor is 30/30 this year. There is no ceiling.

It'll get there. Cain's a beast. People don't need to talk about him though because nothing he does surprises anyone. He'll probably end up having a 60/60 year, and it'll just be another season for Cain. Nothing special about that because people are used to seeing it.

Good point. He is now in Miggy territory just so consistent he doesn't even need a thread. Easy lock for 40/40 with upside

I don't see a 20+ HR out of Cain. I'm an enormous Royals fan and fantasy baseball player - my prediction is 13 HR's with upwards of 23-25 SB. It's possible he could get closer to that 20 mark if he were playing in a more hitter friendly stadium, but Kauffman is a rough place to hit.
