A two-time All-Star with the Kansas City Royals. There hasn’t been an outage for Whit Merrifield since the 2018 season. As of 2017, he had only missed 21 games in his first full season of major league baseball, but now he’ll be sidelined for at least a few weeks.

This is a pity because it had to happen this way. For the most part, I’ve been fortunate. But every day, I put myself in a physically and mentally prepared state of readiness so that I can be ready to play no matter what.” In the words of Anne Rogers In 2022, July 11th

Merrifield has been advised to wear a boot for the foreseeable future. When he returns, it will be after the All-Star Break. Following his release from the boot, it’s time to focus on pain management. The following is a post from my friend Anne Rogers (@anne rogers). The 11th of July, 2022

Merrifield was taken out of Kansas City’s game against the Cleveland Guardians on Sunday because he was experiencing pain in his toes. After agreeing to a restructured contract with the Royals before the season, which included exercising a team option for 2023 and adding a mutual option for 2024, the infielder/outfielder has been the subject of numerous trade rumors.

With a 32-52 record, the Royals are the worst team in the American League Central heading into Monday’s game.
