USA Today

Kansas City Royals rookie infielder Bobby Witt Jr. is returning to the lineup Monday after missing Sunday’s contest with the New York Yankees.

Witt was sidelined Sunday after suffering a right wrist contusion after being hit by a pitch on Saturday.

The 21-year-old will bat seventh Monday afternoon and start at third base.

Witt is carrying a nine-game hitting streak into today’s matchup with the Cardinals who are starting lefty Steven Matz on the mound.

The rookie is hitting .216/.247/.311 for six runs and five RBI in 77 plate appearances so far in 2022.
