Kansas City's Mike Moustakas, who entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning, hung around to hit his first home run of the season in the 11th inning and boost the Royals to a 6-4 victory Wednesday night over the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.
His strong spring training seems so long ago. Moustakas was a legit prospect at one point, but he's a career .240/.293/.378 hitter over 1,399 at bats in the majors, so I'm not holding my breath for a breakout any time soon. - Brad Evans
The Royals aren't panicking about Moustakas ' slow start. In past years, The team is most encouraged by Moustakas ' plate discipline. He's seeing more pitches per at-bat and it's showing up in his walk percentage, which is at a career-high 14.3 percent through five games (FanGraphs.com). Moustakas' career walk percentage (BB/PA) is 6.3 percent. - Michael Hurcomb
It's two years in a row now that Moustakas has followed up a sizzling Spring with an early season faceplant. He's reached base just once in 17 plate appearances and continues to hit just about everything in the air. - Gerard Martin
