Kansas City Royals Futures Bets: 2021 Team & Player Props
Player Props & Futures
- Most Stolen Bases (-130)
Mondesi has stolen 67 bases in 676 plate appearances in the last two seasons combined. Mondesi is the heavy favorite for good reason, as he led the majors with 24 steals last season, eight more than second-place Jonathan Villar. This is a player with 98th-percentile sprint speed, playing for a Royals team that has finished fourth, second, and sixth in stolen bases in the last three seasons. THE BAT X projects Mondesi to steal 52 bases in 2021, which should be good enough for the league lead.
- Most Hits (+1000)
- OVER 173.5 Hits (-122)
Merrifield has totaled 206 and 192 hits in his last two full seasons. In 2020, he was well on his way to approach this total once again, posting 70 hits in 265 plate appearances. This is a hitter with elite contact skills, posting a 90+ Z-Contact% in three of his five seasons in the big leagues. Merrifield is a fixture at the top of the Royals’ lineup, hitting exclusively in the leadoff or two-hole in each of the last two seasons. This will allow him to have more plate appearances, putting him in a good position to eclipse this total and challenge for the league lead in total hits.
