Kansas City Royals’ standout player is achieving feats unmatched by any other player in the early stages of the season.

The Kansas City Royals have kicked off the season with a 4-4 record, aiming for significant improvements in 2024.

Following a season where they finished with the second-worst record in the American League, the Royals made substantial moves in free agency, spending over $100 million to bolster their roster in hopes of sparking a turnaround.

Among these moves, perhaps the most impactful investment was extending the contract of superstar Bobby Witt Jr. The homegrown talent secured a sizable contract extension this offseason, committing to Kansas City for the next seven seasons. So far, the Royals’ investment in Witt Jr. is paying off handsomely.

Witt Jr. has emerged as one of the league’s most dynamic players, boasting a .375 batting average early in the season along with two home runs, two RBIs, and two stolen bases. Last season, he showcased his prowess by hitting .276 with 30 home runs, 96 RBIs, and 49 stolen bases.

With his exceptional performance, Witt Jr. appears poised for an All-Star selection this year and could even contend for a spot near the top of the MVP race, provided he remains healthy throughout the season.
