Hi @Eduardo Rodrigues 

I'm afraid the API endpoint doesn't have a field that separates the merged commit from the others.
Right now, I've gone ahead and created a feature request to add a field that will distinguish that here. -
You can upvote and watch it so that you'll be notified of updates from our product team.
Please do note that we don't have an exact ETA for the feature request as all new features will be implemented according to our policy here.

May I ask if all your merged commit's messages have the format below?

"message" : "Merged in some_branch (pull request #123) ......"

If yes, maybe you can parse the "message" field with the format above?
