Milwaukee Brewers designate outfielder Lorenzo Cain for assignment

Lorenzo Cain didn’t use the word “retirement” on Saturday, the day he reached 10 years of major league service and was also designated for assignment by the Brewers. But everything about his attitude indicated that there is a possibility that his career as a Major League player is over.

“It has been a great journey for me, a fun journey. I worked a lot. I put my body through many things over the years. At the same time, I think the body is ready to rest, definitely.”

The Milwaukee ninth brought in another outfielder, Johnny Davis, in an attempt to get more production out of the reserve outfielder job. Cain, 36, had lost the role of starting center fielder in recent weeks and was hitting .179/.231/.234 in 156 plate appearances this season.

The team now has 10 days to trade Cain, or another team could claim him — if he decides to keep playing. Will Cain retire or try to join another team?

“It’s a wait and see thing,” Cain said. “Take a day or two, and see where things are. Whatever the decision is, maybe sign with another team or retire, I will talk to my family. We’ll sit down and have a conversation.”
