Witt went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in a loss to Arizona on Monday. After Whit Merrifield led off the game with a home run, Witt followed two batters later with a solo blast of his own. The long ball was his fourth over his past 10 games. Over that span, Witt is batting .257 with five RBI, seven runs and a stolen base.
Witt went 0-for-2 with a sacrifice fly, a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Twins. Witt's lone RBI of the game came in the first inning. He had hit safely in seven of the previous eight games entering Friday. The 21-year-old is at a .221/.267/.400 slash line with four home runs, 16 RBI, 18 runs scored and six stolen bases through 150 plate appearances this season. Witt's seen more time at his natural shortstop position lately as part of the ripple effect of Michael Taylor (illness) being out, but he might have to compete with the hot-hitting Emmanuel Rivera at third base once Taylor's healthy again.
Witt went 2-for-4 with a solo home run -- his fourth of the season -- in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the White Sox. The rookie delivered a modest .558 OPS in April, but he's begun to resemble the elite prospect he was billed as through the Royals' first 17 games of May. Over that three-week stretch, Witt is slashing .233/.292/.517 while providing all four of his home runs this month. He'll hit out of the No. 3 spot for the third game in a row in Thursday's series finale, with his ascension into a prominent spot in the lineup coinciding with Salvador Perez's (thumb) placement on the injured list.
Witt went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, two walks and two total runs scored in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Rockies. During the three-game series in Colorado, Witt went 3-for-11 with a pair of homers, four RBI and five runs. Sunday's game was also the first time he's drawn multiple walks all season. He's lifted his slash line to .217/.254/.375 with three long balls, 14 RBI, 15 runs and five stolen bases through 31 contests. The bounce-back May for Whit Merrifield has seen Witt drop to the middle of the order after a bit of time as the Royals' leadoff hitter.
Witt went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 10-4 loss to the Rockies. Witt is only 3-for-18 across his last four games, but all three of those hits have gone for extra bases. He's added six RBI and three runs scored despite striking out six times in that span. The 21-year-old is slashing .212/.238/.347 with two homers, five stolen bases, 13 RBI and 13 runs scored through 30 contests.
