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

Merrifield is not in the lineup against the White Sox on Thursday.

Merrifield will receive a rare day off -- his first since June 24 -- while Adalberto Mondesi gets a nod at the keystone. Since that day off in June, he's hit .336/.389/.454 with nine RBI and seven stolen bases in his last 29 games. Look for Merrifield to rejoin the starting lineup in Minnesota on Friday.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Hits two doubles, scores twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went 2-for-3 with two doubles, two walks and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

Merrifield recorded both of his doubles against starter Aaron Slegers, giving him 29 doubles on the year (which ties him for second in the majors). Merrifield has a 12-game hitting streak in the works and is now slashing .306/.375/.435 on the year. The 29-year-old has five homers, 29 RBI, 39 runs and 16 stolen bases this season.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Reaches base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went 3-for-5 with a run scored Saturday against the Mariners.

Merrifield collected three singles, so it wasn't his most productive three-hit game. That remains a trend for him, as he has now failed to record an extra-base hit in his past three games, all of which of have been multi-hit efforts. While his .289 batting average and .362 on-base percentage are strong, Merrifield has not homered since May 14, so expecting power production from him moving forward is not advisable.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros, Maria Torres of The Kansas City Star reports.

This was described as a rest day by Torres -- nothing to suggest the left knee is still an issue. Merrifield hasn't homered since May 14 and is well off his power pace from a season ago, but he continues to hit for average and run, with his 16 steals ranking second in the American League. Raul Mondesi will get the start at second base in Merrifield's absence Sunday as Rosell Herrera leads off.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Able to DH on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield (knee) will serve as the designated hitter Monday against the Rangers.

Merrifield may not be fully recovered from the bruise he suffered after fouling a ball off his knee Sunday, but he's at least able to hit. Adalberto Mondesi will handle second base Monday.
