Cain opts out of Brewers season

After having an entire series wiped out with the St. Louis Cardinals due to COVID-19, centerfielder Lorenzo Cain is saying "wait until next year."


The Gold Glove-caliber outfielder cited the unknown with COVID-19 and concerns with his family for the decision to call it a year just six games into the truncated season. The Brewers entered the series 3-3, but the Cardinals have had several players and staff members test positive for COVID-19 to cancel the series in essence before it ever got started. You can read his statement below.


“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.”
