  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Notches fourth steal

    Witt went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in a 4-2 win over the White Sox in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

    Witt also went 1-for-4 in the nightcap. He's hit safely in five of the last seven games, batting .333 (10-for-30) in that span. The shortstop is off to another strong start in 2024 with a .321/.369/.628 slash line, four home runs, four steals, eight RBI, 18 runs scored, six doubles and three triples across 84 plate appearances. He's also striking out at a 22.6 percent clip, a bit higher than the 17.4 percent mark he had last year, but that's a fair trade-off for more contact.

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Four hits, two homers vs. Houston

    Witt went 4-for-5 with two homers, five RBI, two additional runs scored and a stolen base in Thursday's 13-3 win over the Astros.

    It was a day to remember for Witt -- the 23-year-old shortstop smacked a two-run homer off Hunter Brown in the first inning before tacking on three more runs with a second long ball off Bryan Abreu in the seventh. Witt has looked like an MVP candidate early in the year, going 19-for-53 (.358) with a 1.169 OPS, four homers and three stolen bases through his first 13 games. With the Royals looking like an improved team this year, Witt should be able to build upon his breakout 2023 campaign.

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Swipes second bag

    Witt went 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Orioles.

    The 23-year-old shortstop continued his blistering start to the season. Witt has recorded multiple hits in four of the Royals' first six games, batting .400 (10-for-25) with four doubles, a triple, two homers, two steals, two RBI and six runs scored. Ronald Acuna was in uncharted territory last year with his 40-70 campaign, but if any other hitter in baseball has the talent to approach those numbers, it might be Witt.

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Blasts homer, steals a base

    Witt went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and one steal in Monday's loss to the Orioles.

    Witt flashed all the skills that made him a top fantasy pick against Baltimore on Monday. The dynamic shortstop opened the game's scoring by tattooing a 440-foot to center field off Dean Kremer in the third inning. Witt appears poised for a monster superstar season as he has now collected an extra base hit in each of his first four games and six in total (three doubles, one triple and two home runs).

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Finishes double shy of cycle in win

    Witt went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a triple and three runs scored in Sunday's 11-0 win over the Twins.

    Witt opened his day with a first-inning single, coming around to score on a Salvador Perez three-run homer. The shortstop tripled and scored in the second inning before launching a solo shot of his own off of Kody Funderburk in the third frame, finishing a double short of the cycle on the day. Witt has gone 6-for-11 with five extra-base hits over the first three games of the 2024 campaign.
