Royals' Whit Merrifield: In the mix at second base for Royals in '17
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Merrifield is among the candidates being considered for the Royals' second base job in 2017, the Kansas City Star reports.

The Royals will likely face significant financial restrictions in their bid to upgrade the roster this winter, leaving second base as a position where internal options may have an open competition for the starting job in spring training. In addition to Merrifield, the Royals are considering Cheslor Cuthbert, Christian Colon, and Raul Mondesi for the job. Merrifield hit .283/.323/.392 with two homers and eight steals in 81 games, but he seems better suited for a part-time role as he'll turn 28 in January.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Homer short of cycle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Merrifield got his first career start at first base Sunday and went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple, a stolen base, two runs scored and an RBI in a win over the Tigers.

He's now hitting .329/.365/.443 in 79 September at-bats, and Merrifield's bat and defensive versatility will likely make him the Royals' top utility player in 2017.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Hitting again since call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went 2-for-5 with a double, a steal, an RBI and two runs against the White Sox on Monday.

A cold stretch got Merrifield demoted in late July, but he's been doing plenty of hitting since getting recalled Sept. 2 -- the 27-year-old rookie has gone 20-for-57 (.351) with a couple steals, nine RBI and 10 runs this month. Merrifield's been an everyday lineup presence lately, making him a viable down-the-stretch play in deeper formats.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Recalled by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Royals recalled Merrifield from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

Merrifield has played with Omaha since late July, but he saw extensive action with the Royals earlier this season, appearing in 53 games. He played both the infield and outfield at both levels, so he figures to work as a super-utility player for the big club during September.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Gets optioned Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Merrifield was optioned Tuesday, Jeffrey Flanagon of MLB.com reports.

Merrifield will likely head back to Triple-A Omaha as Raul Mondesi, one of Kansas City's top prospects, gets called up to the majors. Although Merrifield has been a productive batter in the Royals lineup, based on his .271 season average spanning 210 at-bats, he has also been slumping since mid-July, going 1-for-17 (.059) over his last seven games.
