Whit Merrifield homers twice on Thursday

Whit Merrifield went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI during Toronto's loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

Merrifield followed up a Teoscar Hernandez bomb in the second inning with a solo blast of his own, tying the game 3-3 and then homered again in the ninth inning to score Gabriel Moreno. Merrifield has been unbelievably quiet at the plate since joining the Blue Jays hitting a weak .213/.276/.338 with three home runs, eight RBI and a stolen base over 32 games. Even with the multi-homer gain he doesn't look likely to turn it on for the last few weeks of the season and can be left on the wire outside of deeper leagues.
