Whit Merrifield Projections | Platoon Splits (RHP vs LHP)

Whit Merrifield projected to 150 Games vs RHP and LHP with 12 team mixed fantasy value. This helps identify a player's platoon value for fantasy baseball based on pitcher handedness. These projections by Steamer are a MUCH better indicator of a hitter's platoon splits than in-season stats since it involves multiple years of data and has been properly regressed to league averages. Since games are neutralized across players, values for everyday players may look smaller than for preseason/season to date/rest of season where they benefit from playing time advantages vs other players. In general, left-handed hitters have larger platoon splits.

Whit Merrifield Fantasy Outlook For 2020

Grey Albright Player Summary
Honestly, I didn’t think very hard about whether I would draft LeMahieu or Merrifield first, or if I wanna open a bar named Merrifield’s with a DJ. Since I’m avoiding this entire tier, I just chucked them up in the rankings. I don’t want either, so makes no difference if I’m ranking this way or flip-flopped or am drafting while wearing flip-flops. All irrelevant. As for Merrifield, all I’ll say if you want to find a guy I’m avoiding, find a guy who lost half of his steals, just turned 31, needs 600+ ABs to get his stats and has a career 7.7% HR/FB. That is the new blech.
