Royals' Whit Merrifield: Massive performance in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went 4-for-5 with a triple, a home run, three runs scored, five RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 12-2 rout of the Astros.

The big blow was his seventh-inning grand slam off Framber Valdez, at which point Merrifield probably regretted not trying to stretch one of his earlier singles into a double to give him a cycle. The 30-year-old is having another outstanding campaign, slashing .299/.351/.545 through 37 games with six homers, seven steals, 19 RBI and 30 runs.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Reaches four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two walks and three runs in a 10-2 victory against the Rays on Wednesday.

It was the first time all season Merrifield reached base safety four times. He's been a bit hot and cold lately, but Merrifield is close to climbing back over the .300 average mark and has 11 extra-base hits in 25 games. He is hitting .298 with four home runs, 11 RBI, 19 runs and five steals in 104 at-bats. He's also slashing an even .500.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Sits for first time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield is not in the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Merrifield will head to the bench for what appears to be a well-deserved breather after starting the first 17 games of the season for the Royals, slashing .311/.342/.486 with a pair of homers and five stolen bases in those contests. Chris Owings is starting at the keystone in this one, with Jorge Soler in right field and Lucas Duda at DH.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Swipes fifth base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and a stolen base in Friday's 8-1 win over Cleveland.

One game after seeing his club record 31-game hitting streak snapped, Merrifield got right back on his horse. The 30-year-old is now slashing .328/.361/.500 through 13 games with a homer, five steals, 13 runs and five RBI, and the Royals' leadoff hitter should remain the most reliable fantasy asset in the team's lineup.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Snaps 31-game hitting streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went 0-for-6 in Thursday's loss to Seattle.

Merrifield set a franchise record by extending his hitting streak to 31 games Wednesday night, but his historic run would come to an end after taking the collar at the plate in the series finale. He'll look to begin a new streak starting Friday against the Indians.
