GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Milwaukee Brewers have announced Lorenzo Cain won’t be participating for the rest of the 2020 season.

The team made the announcement on Twitter late Saturday morning, saying they fully support Lorenzo’s decision, and will miss his talents on the field and his leadership.

Cain, who is a center fielder, was awarded the Golden Glove award in 2019.

The team’s announcement comes after reports of a second postponement of the Brewers’ home opener.

Cain later issued a statement, saying after consideration and discussion with his family, he decided to opt out of the remainder of the season due to the uncertainty and unknowns surrounding the game at this time.

He continued on, saying he felt it was the best decision for him, his wife, and their three children, and he looks forward to returning to the field in 2021.
