    • 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.

Merrifield now ranks second in the majors in steals and his .303 batting average and 74 runs both rank within the top 10 among MLB second basemen.

    • Royals' Whit Merrifield: Launches homer in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Merrifield went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Monday's win over the White Sox. Merrifield led off the first with his 12th home run of the season. He had been slumping lately with just three hits in his last 27 at-bats, but hopefully the homer will snap him out of his slump. He remains one of the best second basemen in baseball with his .302 average and 31 steals.
