Mike Moustakas finally goes deep
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas showed a flash of life Wednesday, as he hit his first home run of the season in a 6-4 win over the Astros. Moustakas entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the 8th inning and came up with the game-winning hit in the 11th inning, with his first home run.

Moustakes is still hitting just .119/.213/.238 in 42 at-bats, so hopefully his first homer can at least get him going.

Royals manager continues to back Mike Moustakas
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals manager Ned Yost continues to express confidence in third baseman Mike Moustakas, despite another slow start from the 25-year-old infielder. 

"His head was flying off the ball early in the season," Yost told MLB Network Radio Tuesday. "His approach is much better. He is seeing over five pitches per at-bat. 

"He's just pressing a little bit and trying to do too much out of the gate. He had a tremendous spring and wanted to start well."

Mike Moustakas not worried about early slump
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

After a stellar spring at the plate, Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas hasn't been able to carry that momentum into the regular season. He is 0 for 15 through four games and got his first day off Sunday against the White Sox.

Royals manager Ned Yost said a mental break could be beneficial for Moustakas, who hit .429 with four home runs, seven doubles and 18 RBI in 24 spring games.

"He’s pressing a little bit," Yost said, per The Kansas City Star. "But not nearly as much as he did last year. He’s going to be OK. And that’s just signs of maturity."

Despite the early slump, Moustakas isn't worried.

"It’s 15 at-bats," Moustakas said. "Over the course of 600 at-bats, you’re going to go 0 for 15, 0-for-whatever. I mean, I didn’t expect it to happen right out of the gate. But that’s something that is going to happen. It’s happening right now."

Manager preaching patience with slumping pair
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ned Yost is espousing patience in regard to Royals slumping third baseman Mike Moustakas and shortstop Alcides Escobar, who are a combined 0 for 23 to start the season. He believes in giving players at least 100 plate appearances before making judgments.

"These are all guys that have been there before," Yost told the Kansas City Star. "Not everybody starts off on fire. At the end of the year, these guys' numbers are all going to be about what they should be, what we think they're going to be."

Moustakas has been particularly disappointing after a fine spring. He is coming off a disastrous 2013 season in which he batted just .233 with a .287 on-base percentage. He hit just 12 home runs with 42 RBI in 472 at-bats.

Danny Valencia might replace Mike Moustakas vs. lefties
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals manager Ned Yost said Danny Valencia could be in the starting lineup at third base on the days a left-handed starter is on the hill. However, manager Ned Yost wanted to stress it wasn't because of starting third baseman Mike Moustakas' struggles against left-handed pitchers.

"It's not because I don't think Moose can't hit a tough lefty. It's more trying to keep Danny sharp than it is worrying about Moose hitting against a lefty," Yost said, per MLB.com.
