The Kansas City Royals have a triple threat of triples hitting players leading off in their lineup.

Continuing with the theme of hits, it could be said the Kansas City Royals were doing something right this year offensively. While the season may not have ended the way many fans would hope, the offense has definitely shown improvement and that it is on the upside of the rebuild.

To help justify this further, fans can look to a trio of Royals triples hitters. Whit Merrifield, Hunter Dozier, and Adalberto Mondesi all tied for the most triples in Major League Baseball at 10 triples (along with Eduardo Escobar of the Arizona Diamondbacks).

All three of these players saw great years offensively, and Mondesi was able to keep up with the other two after playing in only 102 games. No other team in the history of the MLB has had three players tie for the lead in triples and the Royals hope to continue this trend with all three players returning for the 2020 season.

While the season as a whole may have had its negatives, it can be seen from this article that the Royals are starting to show some life again and are moving forward quickly with their offense. The next couple of years could be a very trying time for Royals fans, but the direction the team is moving in is positive and they are showing no signs of slowing down.
