Cain stated in Cincinnati that “it just got to the point where it's probably going to be time.” “I haven’t been performing as well as I would like, but it is what it is. I have had a fantastic career. Although I don't have to be sad about anything, it's true that time does pass. All my coaches, trainers, and teammates whom I have played with throughout my career are my best wishes. It has been a very enjoyable ride for me.

Cain is a Gold Glove and All-Star winner twice. In MVP voting, he finished in the top ten twice during his career.

Craig Counsell, Brewers manager said that there was no doubt that he had done his part. “At the final, it was time to do this. It was only time.

Cain was taken out of the roster by a journeyman fielder Jonathan Davis He was called up by Triple-A Nashville.

He said, “I would say that it was mutually beneficial to part ways.” “We have a great team. I didn't contribute as much as I would have liked. It felt like they had to make a change. It would have been nice to be able to contribute more to the team and play better, but that was not the case this season.

“At the end, it was fun. The team has the potential to go far. They are well-coached and well-managed. They are a team of hardworking men. They will be missed. It's been an enjoyable ride.
