Royals' Whit Merrifield: Steals three bases against Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs and three stolen bases to help the Royals to a 5-2 victory over the Yankees on Friday.

On the two-year anniversary of his callup to the big leagues, Merrifield showed why he's developed into one of the more dynamic offensive second basemen in the game as he wreaked havoc all day long against the Yankees. The three steals brought his total on the season up to 12 to move him to fourth in the majors, and he was also able to bring his average up to an even .300 with the three-hit effort. So far, it's looking like last season's breakout campaign that saw him emerge as a five-category asset was not a fluke.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went 2-for-5 with three RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

Merrifield came through with a clutch two-run single in the seventh inning to knot the score at 5-5, but Kansas City wasn't able to push anymore across in the eventual 6-5 loss. The 29-year-old is sporting a nine-game hitting streak to boost his slash line on the year to .290/.357/.426 to go along with nine steals in 11 tries.

Royals' Whit Merrifield: Steals three bases
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Merrifield went went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and three stolen bases Sunday against the Tigers.

Merrifield nearly doubled his stolen base total in one game, as he now has seven for the season. All three of his stolen bases came against Matthew Boyd, including two that came on one plate appearance. His stolen base production will be key to his value going forward, as the poor Royals' lineup surrounding him will likely limit his other counting stats.
