SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) _ Two words an athlete never wants to be labeled with are ``injury prone.''

Lorenzo Cain has been pigeonholed with that marker ever since arriving in Kansas City.

The speedy outfielder has been limited the past two seasons by various injuries, most of them picked up making spectacular catches against the outfield wall. But if Kansas City is to make a push for its first playoff appearance since 1985, Cain will almost certainly need to prove he's capable of playing nearly every day this season.

Cain finished second to Baltimore's Adam Jones for a Gold Glove last season, and was hitting .309 in late May before slipping toward the end of the year.
