Mike Moustakas prefers to sign with Angels

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the Los Angeles Angels are the preferred landing spot for free agent third baseman Mike Moustakas.

Fantasy Impact

The Angels could certainly use an upgrade at the hot corner after Luis Valbuena had a below average year at the plate. So it seems as if Los Angeles has interest in Moustakas they could get a deal done. The former number two overall draft pick hit 38 homers in 148 games in 2017, just one year removed from tearing his ACL.

Mike Moustakas breaks Royals HR record

Mike Moustakas finally broke Steve Balboni's record for Royals homers in a season, as he clubbed number 37 Wednesday night against the Jays. He finished 3-4 with that homer and a double in a blowout of the Jays.

Fantasy Impact

While it is great that Moustakas got the record, he has been atrocious over the past month due to a bad knee. He only has two homers and is batting .225 over the past month. Look for him to get rest days down the stretch as the Royals are effectively out of the playoff race.

Mike Moustakas (knee) out of the lineup Friday

Mike Moustakas (knee) is out of the Royals' lineup Friday against the Twins.

Fantasy Impact

Moustakas has been dealing with knee issues since the end of August, and MLB.com's Jeffery Flanagan reported that the knee injury could hold Moustakas out Saturday as well. He's should be sat in daily lineup leagues, and is a dicey play in weekly leagues next week.

Mike Moustakas goes 2-3 while dealing with knee pain

Mike Moustakas went 2-3 Wednesday while beating up on the Tigers in a 12-2 win. He scored one run in the win.

Fantasy Impact

It was revealed after the game that Moustakas is dealing with mild knee pain, which might explain his recent power slide. Look for him to continue playing every day until the Royals are out of the wildcard race. Moustakas now has 36 homers, 71 runs, 81 RBIs, and a .280 average.

Mike Moustakas hits 36th homer Friday

Mike Moustakas tied the individual season record with 36 homers Friday, belting a two out, three-run homer. The Royals would win 7-6.

Fantasy Impact

Moustakas has been subpar lately, so hopefully this timely homer can turn his recent cold streak around. He is now hitting .275 with 70 runs scored and 81 RBIs, but is only hitting .167 over the past two weeks.
