Royals' Whit Merrifield: Stays aggressive on basepaths

Merrifield went 1-for-3 with two walks, two runs scored and a stolen base Thursday against the Twins.

Merrifield remained aggressive on the basepaths and has now swiped six bags in his past six starts. As a result, he leads the American League in steals (36) and is just two shy of major-league leader Trea Turner. He's supplemented that production with an impressive on-base percentage (.367) and 78 runs scored across 563 at-bats.
