The Milwaukee Brewers have signed free agent outfielder Lorenzo Cain to a 5-year $80 million deal on Thursday.

A formal introduction is expected to take place on Friday.

“We’ve got a chance to be pretty good,” Cain told “I’m looking forward to doing whatever I can to help. It would seem we’re a playoff contender.

“… The chance to come home like that, so to speak, meant a lot. That’s the team that drafted me, developed me. I got my first hit with them, my first home run. It means a lot to go back there. I want to win.”

Milwaukee was busy this week, on Thursday they acquired outfielder Christian Yelich from the Miami Marlins.

Cain, who has a no-trade clause, thanked fans for his time with the Kansas City Royals.

“I absolutely love Royals fans,” Cain said of his time with Kansas City.

“They loved on me for so many years. Just thinking of them brings a smile to my face. Man, I’m really going to miss them. Just all the support they gave me. It was incredible. We all went through so much together.”
