CHICAGO (AP) - Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.
Cain left the Royals' 1-0 victory at Chicago on Saturday night due to tightness in his left groin, but the team said it was precautionary. Kansas City is off on Monday before beginning a three-game series at Minnesota, allowing the Royals to give Cain two days of rest.
Jarrod Dyson got the start in center and was in the ninth slot in the lineup.
Cain is batting .259 with four homers and 38 RBIs in 88 games. He drove in the only run in Saturday night's win.
