Royals | Mike Moustakas simplifies approach
Wed, 22 May 2013 16:48:20 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas broke out of an 0-for-18 slump with an RBI single Tuesday, May 21. Even though Moustakas is hitting .180 through 39 games, manager Ned Yost sees growth in the youngster. "Last year, when he struggled," Yost said, "I mean, he was a mess. There were times when you'd have to sit him for a 'mental day.' This year, he's been in a great frame of mind." Moustakas' latest struggles made him realize that he needs to simplify his approach. He had been trying to work on mechanical adjustments too much instead of trusting in his abilities.
