  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Achieves 30-steal season

    Witt went 1-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 5-2 extra-inning win over the Guardians.

    Witt has struggled a bit to begin October, going 2-for-13 with two walks and two steals in three games this month. The late surge on the basepaths was ultimately enough to earn him a 30-steal season as a rookie. He's also maintained a .254/.295/.431 slash line with 20 home runs, 80 RBI, 82 runs scored, 31 doubles and six triples through 148 contests.

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Closing in on 30 steals

    Witt went 1-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Guardians.

    The steal was Witt's 29th of the season, though he's gone just 3-for-6 on the basepaths since the start of September. He's still just one theft away from a 20-homer, 30-steal rookie season. The shortstop has added a .256/.296/.436 slash line with 80 RBI, 81 runs scored, 31 doubles and six triples while regularly batting second in the Royals' young lineup.

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Gets Wednesday off

    Witt is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

    Witt had started in every game for the Royals since Aug. 12, so he was probably overdue for a day off. His move to the bench comes while he's in the midst of a 10-game hitting streak, during which he's batting .364 with nine runs, eight RBI and a stolen base. Nicky Lopez will step in at shortstop for Witt.

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Logs steal in win

During that longer span, he's batted .327 (17-for-52) with five doubles, six RBI, eight runs scored and two steals. The 22-year-old rookie has lifted his season slash line up to .254/.294/.439 with 20 home runs, 28 steals, 76 RBI and 77 runs scored in 139 contests.

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Knocks in two runs

    Witt went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's victory over the Red Sox.

    Witt singled home MJ Melendez in the fifth inning and Hunter Dozier in the sixth. He also reached home on a Vinnie Pasquantino double in the fifth inning. Since Sept. 7, Witt has hits in eight of nine games, going 10-for-35. Despite that, his batting average has only increased three points to .249 during that span thanks in part to striking out five times.

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Gets aboard thrice in win

    Witt went 1-for-3 with two walks and a stolen base in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Guardians.

    Witt showed some patience at the plate Wednesday, which is solid given his 5.1 percent walk rate for the year. He attempted a steal in the first inning but was caught, only to successfully record a theft in the eighth. The rookie infielder has had some struggles with consistency at times, but he's at 20 home runs, 27 steals in 33 attempts, 70 RBI, 69 runs scored and a .246/.291/.438 slash line through 127 contests overall. He's hit safely in 14 of his last 18 games.

  • Royals' Bobby Witt: Three RBI in win

    Witt launched a three-run blast in the third that scored MJ Melendez and Nicky Lopez. It was his 20th home run and his second in the last four days. Since ending an eight-game hit streak Aug. 28, Witt has gone 4-for-28 with eight strikeouts. Despite that, the young shortstop has been productive on the basepaths and at the plate, picking up five runs and five RBI during that span. Witt's season batting average sits at .248 after Saturday's contest.
