Players can still opt out even after the start of the season, which is what Cain has done. To date, the two-time All-Star becomes one of the biggest names to choose not to play in 2020.
A career .288 hitter, Cain hit .260 last season with 11 home runs and 18 stolen bases. He was off to a good start in 2020, going 6-for-18 to open the season.
