Cain aims to return to Royals within two months
KANSAS CITY -- Center fielder Lorenzo Cain, checking in at the Royals' clubhouse this week, said the forecast is for him to miss another four to eight weeks as his left hip flexor heals.

Cain was about ready to return from his injury rehab for a left groin strain with Double-A Northwest Arkansas last week when another injury occurred to the same leg.

"In the first inning, I went back for a fly ball and a sharp pain hit my leg, and it kind of started tingling," Cain said. "Something didn't feel right, and they took me out of the game. I flew to K.C. the next day for an MRI, and that's when I found out it was torn."

Cain is taking it slow now, icing the injury, with rehab work ahead of him at the Royals' training facility at Surprise, Ariz.
