Royals' Whit Merrifield: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio Kansas City reports.

Merrifield has already lost his spot in the top third of the lineup and his playing time is now trending in the wrong direction, as Saturday's absence marks his fourth in the team's last seven games. He's batting just .180/.255/.260 for the month of July. Christian Colon will get the nod at second base Saturday.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Merrifield is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

With Merrifield stuck in an 8-for-40 slump in July, manager Ned Yost will turn the keystone over to Christian Colon for the second straight day. It's likely that Merrifield has built up enough goodwill over the course of his breakthrough season to retain the top spot on the depth chart, but with his BABIP beginning to normalize, the 27-year-old's batting line is starting to become less appealing.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Merrifield is out of the lineup Wednesday, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

It appears to be just a standard day off for Merrifield, who hasn't had a day off in quite a while. Christian Colon will get the start at the keystone and hit seventh Wednesday.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Sets career high with four RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went 3-for-5 with a walk, four RBI and a run against the Tigers on Saturday.

Merrifield's four RBI were a career high for the rookie second baseman. He's riding a seven-game hitting streak in which he's amassed five multi-hit performances while raising his average 17 points. Through his first 115 MLB at-bats, the 27-year-old is slashing .339/.356/.469.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Hits first career home run
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Merrifield went 2-for-4 with a home run, a triple and two runs scored in Monday's victory over the Indians.

The home run was the first of Merrifield's young career. The second baseman has been a revelation since being summoned from Triple-A, hitting a robust .330 with 15 runs scored and three stolen bases. Merrifield has hit safely in nine of 11 games this month, collecting five hits in his last two games.
