Latest News (Jul 12, 2018)

More from
Kansas City Royals infielder Whit Merrifield went hitless on Wednesday, breaking up a 12-game hitting streak. Merrifield has been rumored to be included in some trade negotiations this July, but with years of control left on his contract, he's logically been very expensive and isn't expected to be moved. Merrifield hasn't shown the same level of pop as last year, but he is on pace for 50 doubles and 30 stolen bases while hitting over .300. He should be one of the game's most valuable second basemen once again before the year's out.
