Royals | Mike Moustakas unhappy with slow start

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is angry with his slow, unproductive start this season. "It's tough. Nobody wants to do bad on the field, but at the end of the day, we're winning ballgames. We're in first place right now. That makes everything go a lot easier." Moustakas entered play Tuesday, April 23, hitting just .158 with a .226 on-base percentage, and .193 slugging percentage. However, he and the team believe they have identified his problem, as he is drifting forward on pitches, robbing all power from his swing in the process.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas has been working hard to bust out, including an extensive session of early batting practice Tuesday with hitting coaches Andre David and Jack Maloof looking on. He drove the ball regularly, and with authority. Now, if that can translate into results during game action, he will once again be a must-start fantasy option. For now, he is only worth a look in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues until he gets untracked.
