Whit Merrifield has three hits on Monday

Whit Merrifield went 3-for-3 with two RBI during Toronto's win over Baltimore on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Merrifield singled in Teoscar Hernandez and Matt Chapman in the second inning and later scored on a wild pitch by Orioles starter Dean Kremer in the fifth inning. He's really turned it on recently, collecting his third three-hit game in his last four outings and has gone 19-for-41 (.463) with four home runs, four doubles and 11 RBI over his last 12 games. Merrifield has generally disappointed this year though, producing a .252/.300/.378 slash line with 11 home runs, 58 RBI and 16 stolen bases across 137 games.

Whit Merrifield logs three hits Friday

Whit Merrifield went 3-for-3 with a double, one RBI, and two runs scored in a win over the Red Sox Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Merrifield remains hot, tallying 14 hits in his last 41 at-bats. The 33-year-old veteran is slashing .243/.294/.365 with 10 home runs, 54 runs batted in, and 16 stolen bases this season. Merrifield remains a solid option for fantasy managers.

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.

Whit Merrifield clocks home run on Sunday

Whit Merrifield went 1-for-2 with a solo home run during Toronto's loss to New York on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Merrifield's first home run as a Blue Jay almost didn't make it over the wall as it bounced on the top of the fence, not once, but twice before clearing. Fortunately for the Blue Jays, Aaron Hicks wasn't able to reach the ball and the home run tied the game 1-1. Merrifield hasn't been especially productive since joining the Blue Jays sporting a .241/.295/.350 triple slash line with two RBI and a stolen base over 40 at-bats.

Whit Merrifield out of lineup Wednesday

Whit Merrifield is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Orioles. Santiago Espinal is playing 2B and Raimel Tapia is in CF.

Fantasy Impact

There is no indication of an injury for Merrifield, and it's starting to look like he has a much lesser role on the Blue Jays compared to Kansas City. This will be the 3rd time in the last 6 games he is not in the starting lineup. Merrifield has hit .250 with a 45 wRC+ since joining the Blue Jays.
