4/18:Kansas City Royals second baseman Whit Merrifield went 1-for-3 on Wednesday with a home run, two RBI and two walks. The home run marked the first of the year for Merrifield. Many expected the Royals second baseman to break out in 2018, making his early-season slump somewhat disappointing. Coming into the game, he was hitting just .246 with two RBI and a stolen base. However, Merrifield showed how talented he was last season, hitting .288 with 19 home runs, 78 RBI and 34 stolen bases. Perhaps this game helps Merrifield turn it around, so your chance to buy low on him could be waning.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBaller
