Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Lorenzo Cain has no regrets about opting out of nearly the entire 2020 season but realizes his long layoff could create some obstacles now that he's back.
"Definitely the right choice, 100% it was the right choice," the 2018 All-Star and 2019 Gold Glove winner said Wednesday from the Brewers' spring training site in Phoenix. "No doubt in my mind. I would do it again in a heartbeat."
Cain, who turns 35 on April 13, played just five games last year before sitting out the rest of the season. He was one of nearly 20 players to opt out, a group that also included Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher David Price and San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey. Nearly all are returning to action this spring.
