Royals' Michael Massey: Swats fourth homer
Massey went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Monday's 7-0 win over the Cardinals.
Massey provided the Royals' last runs with his ninth-inning blast. The second baseman has multiple hits in each of his last four starts, and he's now hitting .324 (22-for-68) in May, albeit with a 9:20 BB:K for the month. He's up to a .240 batting average with four homers, 17 RBI, 15 runs scored and three stolen bases through 48 contests while mainly seeing a strong-side platoon role at the keystone.... See More ...

Royals' Michael Massey: Logs third steal
Massey went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Nationals.
Massey appears to be in a strong-side platoon role now, losing starts against left-handed pitchers to Matt Duffy at the keystone. Saturday was Massey's fourth multi-hit effort in May, and he's hitting .295 for the month. It's a solid turnaround for the second baseman, but he still has an uninspiring .223/.275/.317 slash line with three home runs, three steals, 14 RBI and 14 runs scored through 153 plate appearances. In addition to Duffy, Nicky Lopez could also see starts at second base, which could lead to Massey serving as the designated hitter more often now that Hunter Dozier has been released....

Massey went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss against the White Sox.
Massey drove in the only two runs scored by the Royals on Sunday, taking Lance Lynn yard for a two-run homer in the second inning that scored Edward Olivares. After going homerless in his first 30 games of 2023, Massey has clubbed three long balls in his last 11 appearances to raise his slash line to .213/.259/.307 on the year.... See More ... See Less

Royals' Michael Massey: Homers in second straight game
Massey went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's 4-3 win over the White Sox.
Massey opened the scoring with a solo shot to right field. It was his second consecutive game with a long ball after he failed to go deep in his first 30 contests this season. Massey showed some pop with 21 homers in High-A ball in 2021 and 20 between the minors and majors last year, but he's largely struggled this season with a .225/.274/.314 slash line and a 33.6 percent strikeout rate....

Royals' Michael Massey: Hits first homer of 2023
Massey went 3-for-4 with a solo homer, a double and two RBI in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.
Massey took Lance Lynn deep to lead off the fourth inning as part of a three-hit effort. It was his first three-hit performance of the season and his first home run of the campaign as well. Wednesday's showing was a nice boost for the 25-year-old, who has struggled overall with a slash line of .222/.373/.283 with four extra base hits, 10 RBI, nine runs and a 6:37 BB:K over 110 plate appearances....

Royals' Michael Massey: Posts steal Saturday
Massey went 1-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Athletics.
Massey has hit safely in his last three games, going 4-for-8 with four walks, one RBI and three runs scored in that span. After a rough first few weeks of the season, the second baseman is slowly turning things around. He was batting just .115 on April 21, but he's up to .191 now. Massey has added two steals, six RBI, seven runs scored and two doubles with no home runs over 28 contests.... See More ... See Less

Royals' Michael Massey: Two more hits Tuesday
Massey went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks.
Massey drove in a run in the fifth to extend the Royals' lead to 3-1. The 25-year-old now has three straight multi-hit games, but after that is still slashing just .188/.182/.203 with no homers, five RBI, four runs scored and a 0:23 BB:K over 66 plate appearances. The lack of plate discipline is certainly alarming, but perhaps Massey could be finding his way the at the dish with his recent hitting production.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Michael Massey: Two hits, steal in loss
Massey went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Angels.
Massey's poor start to the year has cost him the chance to hold down a starting role at second base. He was benched a couple of times against right-handed pitchers over the last week, but he's started versus two straight righties and even earned a look against southpaw Reid Detmers in Sunday's contest. Massey has a lackluster .143/.138/.161 slash line with four RBI, three runs scored, one double and one steal through 58 plate appearances. With Matt Duffy starting the year hot and Nicky Lopez still in the mix at the keystone, Massey will need to quickly build on this game to maintain his playing time.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Michael Massey: Riding pine again Monday
Massey is out of the Royals' lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers.
It's the second day in a row that the left-handed hitting Massey has been on the bench against a right-hander, which doesn't seem like a great sign. The 25-year-old is probably due for a demotion following a dreadful start which has seen him post a .251 OPS and 18:0 K:BB over 14 contests. Matt Duffy is at second base Monday.... See More ...
