Recent Update

7/8:Kansas City Royals second baseman/utility man Whit Merrifield has apparently been listening to the Dixie Chicks. Merrifield has shown that he's ready to run this week as he's logged stolen bases in four of his last five games while hitting .318. Even going hitless against the Dodgers on Friday wasn't enough to keep Merrifield from swiping a base as he grabbed one after a walk anyway. It's unclear what's spurred the sudden uptick in his running, but since he hasn't been caught a single time all week, expect him to continue the trend with another righty on the mound on Saturday.--Billy Stonick - RotoBaller
