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.

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.

Mike Moustakas went 3-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Moustakas took Brewers starter Matt Garza deep for a solo shot in the seventh inning, Moustakas' sixth homer of the year. He added two singles to push his average to .326 with an .851 OPS. 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.
