Mike Moustakas (3B)

Kansas City Royals - 78% owned

Bats: L, Throws: R

After a really strong start to the season in April Moustakas batting has cooled off in May. Moustakas hit .356 in the month of April but has dipped down to .255 in May.

Fantasy Impact: It is worth monitoring Moustakas going forward. With a career average of .242 and OBP below .300 is he starting the slide down towards his career averages or will this be a breakout season at the plate? Moustakas doesn't take many walks so if OBP is part of your fantasy league there are better alternatives than Moustakas at third base.


Mike Moustakas went 4-for-5 with 2 runs and an RBI in the Royals 6-2 win over the Indians tonight.

Fantasy Impact: Moustakas raised his season batting average to .342 after his 4-hit night at the plate. If Moustakas isn't already gone in your fantasy league now would be the time to give him a look.

Fantasy Impact: After a brief mini slump Moustakas broke out in a big way on Tuesday night with 3 hits, a home run and 3 RBI. Moustakas has had a good start to the season, hitting .327 with 3 home runs and 5 RBI through 14 games.

Mike Moustakas went 2-for-4 with a home run and a walk against the Angels on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: This was Mike Moustakas' second home run of the season. ESPN project him for 16, CBS for 18. He is batting .353 and thriving hitting second in the lineup. It is unlikely to continue but perhaps 2015 is the year that fantasy players have been waiting for.

3B Mike Moustakas went 2-for-3 in Monday's game vs White Sox. He took Jeff Samardzija deep, scored two runs and walked once.

Fantasy Impact: 2014 saw Mike Moustakas post just .212 AVG. His heroics in the post-season has bought him breathing-space before talk of platoons or demotion start again. If he can reproduce his October form or his spring form (.333 AVG) then the conversation will shift to MVP rather than DFA.

Mike Moustakas went 3-for-4 in the Cactus League victory over the Astros on Friday. He walked twice, stole a base and scored three runs.

Fantasy Impact: Is this the year? Mike Moustakas has promised so much and let so many fantasy owners down. With his spring batting average at .345 he is tempting you to back him again. His two home runs, five doubles and 11 RBI suggest that you should give him one more chance.

3B Mike Moustakas had a great day at the plate to raise his AVG to .321. He finished the Cactus League defeat to the Brewers 2-for-3 with 2 RBI. The highlight was an enormous home run off Wily Peralta.

Fantasy Impact: Mike Moustakas is an enigma. 5 home runs in October could mean he will enter 2015 over-hyped. Or maybe, he will be undervalued as he has disappointed in the last two years. Expect 15 home runs but dream of 25.

Mike Moustaksas hit a home run today vs the Milwaukee Brewers. Moustakas finished the game 2-3 with two RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Moustakas is batting .321 with a home run and four RBI so far this spring. Moustakas struggled most of last year, only batting .212 with 15 HR and 54 RBI. The 26 year old did hit five home runs in the playoffs and the Royals are hoping he can turn the corner this year. I'm still not sold on him but I do think a .230 average with 20 HR and 60 RBI is a fair projection.
