Mike Moustakas was removed from Sunday's game against the Twins due to a family emergency.
It's unclear what the issue is, but family certainly should come first and be the third baseman's priority. It wouldn't be surprising to see him miss another day or two, so fantasy owners may want to have an alternative option ready for next week. Jul 5 - 4:55 PM

Mike Moustakas went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's 8-2 victory against Seattle.

Encouragingly, Moose took southpaw Roenis Elias deep. The 26-year-old's breakout campaign has been largely due to his destruction of right-handers -- against whom he's posted a .919 OPS -- but his progression against same-sided pitching has contributed greatly as well. Formerly lost against lefties, Moose entered this evening with a respectable .273/.330/.386 slash line against his former tormentors.

The third baseman's breakout appears to be for real -- he's now hitting .347 in June -- making him just the latest Royals prospect to bloom late in his MLB career.
