Brewers ink Lorenzo Cain on five-year deal, Royals set to receive compensation

Stuff is finally happening in the baseball world. There was just recently some entertainment, with the Brewers making a huge move to acquire Marlins stud Christian Yelich. He wasn’t the outfielder they brought in today though, with this news recently coming from the Twitter account of Ken Rosenthal.

Yes, folks. It has finally happened. A Royals free agent, or any free agent for that matter, has signed. Lorenzo Cain is heading to the team that originally drafted him, the Milwaukee Brewers, on a five-year, $80 million deal. It never seemed likely that Cain would be returning to the Royals, but this deal clears up some things up for the Royals future, as the Royals are now guaranteed to receive a compensation pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, helping jump-start their plans for a rebuild.

This deal has led to reality kicking in for Royals fans, as a feel of nostalgia is brewing among Royals fans. Cain’s Royals career will surely someday land him in the Royals Hall of Fame,  with fans remembering his countless amount of highlight reel catches, his dash around the bases in Game 6 of the 2015 ALCS, and his third place AL MVP finish the year the Royals brought home the trophy.
