MILWAUKEE (WKOW)- Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain has become the latest player to opt-out of the 2020 season.
Lorenzo Cain also released a statement explaining his decision.
“After careful consideration and discussion with my family, I have decided to opt out of the remainder of the 2020 season. With all of the uncertainty and unknowns surrounding our game at this time, I feel that this is the best decision for me, my wife, and our three kids. The Brewers organization was very understanding and supportive of my decision, and I thank them for that. I wish all of my great teammates the best of luck this season and look forward to getting back on the field in 2021. Please stay safe.”
