2017

2016

Merritt opened some eyes with a strong 2014 season (0.95 WHIP, 1.4 BB/9, 7.1 K/9 in 27 starts) at High-A Carolina and handled the transition to Double-A Akron pretty well (1.14 WHIP, 1.0 BB/9, 5.7 K/9 in 22 starts) in 2015 before getting a late-season promotion to Triple-A Columbus. Things didn't go as well at the higher level (1.47 WHIP, 1.8 BB/9, 4.8 K/9 in five starts), but it gave him a chance to get his feet wet. The Triple-A landfill is full of finesse lefties who have a hard time missing bats, and Merritt will have to walk a fine line to avoid winding up as another organizational body on top of the pile. There's not much to get excited about until he can prove he can survive the jump to Triple-A despite his poor K rate.
