Brewers' Lorenzo Cain Opts Out of 2020 Season

Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain has opted out of the 2020 MLB season, the club announced Saturday.

"Lorenzo Cain has informed us that he will not participate for the remainder of the 2020 season," general manager David Stearns said in a statement. "We fully support Lorenzo's decision, and we will miss his talents on the field and leadership in the clubhouse."

Cain becomes the second MLB player to opt out on Saturday, only hours after Marlins second baseman Isan Díaz announced his decision. They join over a dozen players around the league who will sit out the season amid the coronavirus pandemic.
