  • MJ Melendez Records A Pair Of Hits Thursday

    Headshot for MJ Melendez

    Kansas City Royals catcher/outfielder MJ Melendez put together a solid game on Thursday, going 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI, but his team ultimately fell to the Seattle Mariners 6-4. The 24-year-old came into the 2023 campaign with solid power potential, but he's gone deep just 12 times across 115 games and owns a .235 batting average with 50 runs, 44 RBI, and six stolen bases. With that kind of production, he doesn't have much value in standard and one-catcher formats, and fantasy managers can find better options than Melendez on the waiver wire.

    Headshot for MJ Melendez

    Kansas City Royals outfielder MJ Melendez is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 24-year-old could use a breather after going 0-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts on Friday. Melendez is hitting .154/.250/.180 with no homers, two RBI and a 14/4 K/BB ratio over his last 11 games. Samad Taylor will cover left field and bat seventh versus left-hander Julio Urias on Saturday.
