The Milwaukee Brewers and Lorenzo Cain have agreed on a deal, per Ken Rosenthal on Twitter. Cain, who was originally with the Brewers before being traded to Kansas City in the Zack Greinke deal, was the top center fielder on the free agent market, and a rumored potential target of the Rangers. This comes on the heels of a Milwaukee trading for outfielder Christian Yelich.

No word yet on terms, but we will update with that info once it becomes available. Go ahead and ignore all the stuff I wrote in the Yelich post about Cain being more likely to be signed by Texas since Milwaukee now wouldn't be interested.

UPDATE — Jerry Crasnick says the deal is five years, $80 million, which I think was about what was expected heading into the offseason for Cain.
