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 2022

Grey Albright Player Summary
I told you to avoid last year three top 2nd basemen: Whit, DJ LeMahieu and Keston Hiura. As Meatloaf sang, two out of three ain’t bad. Merrifield’s been a cockroach disguised as a crawfish in my gumbo for about five years now. I’ve given up trying to anticipate Merrifield’s demise. Appizzarently, he can steal 40 bags later than just about anyone except Rickey Henderson. My worry as it’s always been is if he stops stealing, Whit gives little else, i.e., 10/40/.275 is a lot more interesting than 10/20/.275. He’s buried in these rankings compared to how well he’s done in the recent past, but one thing that never fails to fail is my expectation for old speed drying up, to Whit.
