Recent Update

6/14:When the Kansas City Royals promoted second baseman Whit Merrifield to the leadoff role, he didn't have to do much to outperform his predecessor. Shortstop Alcides Escobar had been dreadful in the role, but manager Ned Yost's reluctance to move Merrifield meant he likely had a short leash. While Merrifield started rough, garnering just three hits and no walks in his first 23 plate appearances after the promotion, he's had two multi-hit games in his last three. Escobar has been heating up in the bottom of the lineup, but Merrifield should be able to hang onto the position as long as he concentrates on getting on base.--Billy Stonick - RotoBaller
