MJ Melendez powers Royals past Orioles

MJ Melendez had a productive outing in the Royals' 9-4 victory over the Orioles, going 2-for-4 with a home run, four RBI, and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact

This performance highlighted his ability to contribute significantly to the Royals' offense, particularly with his power hitting. Despite a modest .242 batting average for the season, Melendez's slugging capabilities are evident with his tally of four home runs and 12 RBI in just 18 games. His wOBA of .354 suggests he's been quite effective at creating runs when he does connect, making him a valuable asset in fantasy lineups, especially in formats that reward power statistics. However, his high strikeout rate of .243 remains a concern for consistency. Fantasy managers should consider Melendez a high-risk, high-reward option moving forward.
