MJ Melendez powers Royals to narrow victory

MJ Melendez went 1-for-3 in the Royals' thrilling 10-9 win over the Mariners, highlighted by a home run and four RBI.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance, though impactful, is a rare highlight in what has been a challenging season for Melendez, as evidenced by his .167 batting average and modest power numbers over 55 games. His home run in this game contributes to a total of six for the season, which suggests some underlying power potential that could be of interest in deeper fantasy leagues. However, his high strikeout rate (0.259) and low BABIP (.193) indicate ongoing struggles with making consistent contact, which fantasy managers should consider before making any roster moves based on this single game's performance.
