Royals Activate Lorenzo Cain From DL

The Kansas City Royals have activated OF Lorenzo Cain from the 15-day disabled list and optioned INF Jimmy Paredes to Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move:

Cain, 28, came over from Milwaukee in the Zach Greinke trade a couple of seasons ago and owns a career .269 AVG in 237 games played. Cain had been originally placed on the disabled list on April 17th with a left groin strain.

Paredes, 25, was claimed off waivers from Houston in early February and has hit .234 in 122 games played over parts of four seasons in the major leagues.
