Cain set for rehab stint at Northwest Arkansas
KANSAS CITY -- Center fielder Lorenzo Cain was dispatched to the Royals' Double-A Northwest Arkansas club to begin an injury rehabilitation assignment on Sunday.

Cain sustained a left groin strain when he banged into the Oakland Coliseum center-field wall while making a catch in his fifth game of the season.

Pitcher Felipe Paulino, rehabbing his right forearm strain in Arizona, is expected to join the Naturals soon, but he's not yet been assigned.

Greg Holland's addition brought membership to the Royals' disabled list to seven -- also including Cain, Paulino, Joakim Soria, Blake Wood, Salvador Perez and Manny Pina.
