Insight: Moustakas hit eighth for the first time in the postseason in Game 6 and rewarded his manager with an RBI-double and solo home run.The Royals lineup is the same as it was in Game 6.
 
10/29/2014 9:21:00 AM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas was 2-for-4 with a double and home run in Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday.
Insight: Moustakas' double scored the first run of the game in the second. He later scored in the seven-run inning. He also hit a home run off Hunter Strickland in the seventh.
 
10/28/2014 4:16:00 PM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas will bat eighth in Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday.
Insight: It is a slight change as Moustakas batted ninth in most all previous playoff lineups that included the designated hitter. Billy Butler and Nori Aoki will return to their usual spots in the lineup and Omar Infante will bat ninth.
 
Hot10/11/2014 8:36:00 PM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas hit his fourth home run of the postseason.
Insight: The .212 hitter during the regular season has gotten hot at just the right time, batting .318 in the playoffs with four homers and five RBI.
 
10/11/2014 9:14:00 AM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas hit a home run in his second consecutive postseason game to help lift the Royals past the Orioles, 8-6, in extra innings of Game 1 in the ALCS on Friday.
Insight: Left fielder Alex Gordon smashed a solo home run to give Kansas City a one-run advantage in the 10th, and Moustakas added two insurance runs on his home run three at-bats later. Moustakas' homer proved to be the game-winner as Baltimore did rally to score a run in the bottom of the inning. After finishing dead last with 95 home runs during the regular season, Kansas City leads the playoffs with seven bombs.
 
9/15/2014 3:48:00 PM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas is not in Monday's starting lineup.
Insight: Moustakas has a bad history versus John Danks (1-for-13), so this isn't a surprise. Jayson Nix will get the start at the hot corner. Nix and his .130 batting average has no fantasy value.
 
Hot7/25/2014 11:27:00 PM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas raised his average to .200 for the first time all season Friday night.
Insight: He went 1-for-4 with a homer, his 13th of the season, against the Indians. Moustakas has batted .268 with nine homers and an OPS north of .830 in his last 36 games after a putrid start to the season.
 
Hot7/24/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas is a career .389 hitter (7-for-18) versus Cleveland starter Corey Kluber.
Insight: Moustakas has batted .313 for the week as he closes in on the Mendoza Line (.199). He might be an inexpensive play worthy of a one-day shot Thursday.
 
7/10/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas is questionable for Thursday's game against Detroit due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Moustakas is still batting below the Mendoza Line (.193) and fantasy owners have likely already given up on him, but he did hit home run No. 10 this week.
 
7/6/2014 4:18:00 PM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas hit his 10th home run of the season and now has 35 RBI.
Insight: Moustakas is still batting below the Mendoza Line (.195) and fantasy owners have likely already given up on him.
 
7/4/2014 10:21:00 PM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI Friday at Cleveland.
Insight: Moustakas has nine home runs this season, but he's batting just .192 with a .624 OPS. The third baseman has the fly-ball rate of a power-hitter (47%), but he doesn't hit the ball in the air with authority enough and is only hitting .189 on balls in play.
 
Hot6/14/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas went 3-for-4 with a homer and two RBI Saturday at Chicago.
Insight: Moustakas has gone 7-for-18 with two homers, five RBI and five runs his last five games. We're going to need to see a lot more than that to recommend using the 25-year-old, who has been consistently terrible at the major league level.
 
6/13/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas is a career .421 hitter (8-for-19) with two homers and a 1.239 OPS against White Sox starter Jose Quintana.
Insight: Moustakas has gone 5-for-14 (.357) over the past seven days. He's still well below the Mendoza line and most days isn't fantasy worthy, but he might be worth a flier on Friday.
 
Cold6/11/2014 9:32:00 AM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas went 1-for-3 with a homer, two RBI and two runs Tuesday against Cleveland.
Insight: Moustakas has gone 5-for-30 (.167) since he was recalled, which is better than the .152 average he had before his demotion but still not very good.
 
6/1/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas' minor-league exile didn't last long. Kansas City summoned him Sunday.
Insight: Danny Valencia went on the disabled list with a wrist injury. Moustakas hit .355 with a homer and a .960 OPS in eight games with Triple-A Omaha, but he'll return to a .152 average, four homers and a .543 OPS in the majors. He's yet to prove he's more than a Quadruple-A player.
 
Cold5/22/2014 6:04:00 PM
Description: The Royals have sent struggling third baseman Mike Moustakas down to Triple-A Omaha.
Insight: It was only a matter of a time. Moustakas' production has fallen off a cliff this season and it looks like he's lost all his confidence. The 25-year-old can be safely dropped in all formats.
 
5/21/2014 1:46:00 PM
Description: Kansas City third baseman Mike Moustakas has a nice matchup waiting for him Wednesday against Chicago.
Insight: He's hitting .421 against today's starting pitcher, Jose Quintana. It's pretty hard to justify owning Moustakas (.152, 4 HR, 17 RBI) at this point but if you do still have him, today would be a nice day to have him in your lineup.
 
5/5/2014 6:48:00 PM
Description: Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is getting the night off Monday against the Padres. SOURCE: Bob Scanlan, Padres play-by-play
Insight: What do you still have Moustakas for anyway? The guy is hitting .151 with 20 strikeouts in 93 at bats. No matter how bad your team is at third base right now, Moustakas isn't the answer.
 
5/1/2014 3:41:00 PM
Description: Kansas City third baseman Mike Moustakas is not in Thursday's starting lineup versus Toronto.
Insight: Moustakas, was hot about a week ago, but has reverted back to the sub .200 hitter he has been for most of the season. After going 2-for-18 over the past five games, he's down to .149. Danny Valencia (.286) will start.
 
Hot4/24/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: The suddenly hot-hitting Kansas City third baseman Mike Moustakas has a favorable matchup on Thursday.
Insight: Moustakas, who has homered in the last two games and has has four homers and 10 RBI over his last eight games, is a career 6-for-12 against Cleveland right-hander Corey Kluber. You won't hear this often, but start Moustakas.
