Royals' Mike Moustakas: Transferred to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (knee) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Tuesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Moustakas has already been ruled out for the remainder of 2016 after undergoing surgery to repair his torn ACL, so the move was purely a procedural one. Tyler Olson, who was claimed off waivers by the Royals earlier Tuesday, will fill in on the 40-man roster in a corresponding move and report to Triple-A Omaha.

Royals' Mike Moustakas: Undergoes successful ACL surgery Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (knee) underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL on Thursday and he is expected to be ready for the start of the 2017 season, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

Moustakas was ruled out for the season in late May after what was initially diagnosed as a knee contusion turned out to be a torn ACL. In his absence, the Royals have been turning to a mix of Chelsor Cuthbert and Whit Merrifield to take Moustakas' place at third base. Fortunately, Moustakas' surgery Thursday was deemed a success by Dr. James Andrews, so he figures to begin rehab in the near future with the goal of being ready for Opening Day in 2017.

Royals' Mike Moustakas: Out for season with torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL, Rustin Rodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

The Royals will turn to Cheslor Cuthbert and Whit Merrifield in the short term, but they might be forced to seek for a trade in the long run. Moustakas' loss is a big one for Kansas City, as the third baseman was expected to be a key part of the Royals' offense, and he hit .240 with seven homers in 104 at-bats. Outfielder Brett Eibner was recalled from Triple-A as a corresponding roster move.

Royals' Mike Moustakas: Placed on DL with torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas was placed on the 15-day DL Thursday with a right ACL tear.

It is not clear if it is a complete or partial tear, and the team has not yet released a timetable for his return, but he is likely done for the season. Kyle Schwarber, for instance, suffered a fully torn ACL and LCL before the season and was then ruled out for all of 2016. Outfielder Brett Eibner was recalled from Triple-A as a corresponding move, but he won't be responsible for filling this massive void at third base. The Royals will likely turn to Cheslor Cuthbert and Whit Merrifield in the short term, but neither player offers much long term upside. Hunter Dozier, 24, is having a major breakout year in the upper levels of the minors, and is slashing .296/.324/521 with four homers in 17 games at Triple-A, so he could be a consideration later in the season. The Royals may also look to address their need at the hot corner via trade. Either way, it's probably safe to drop Moustakas in single-season leagues at this point.

Royals' Mike Moustakas: Remains out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moustakas (knee) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Minnesota, and according to MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan, he will be examined by team doctors Thursday in Kansas City.

Per Flanagan, Moustakas was able to take some swings Wednesday, but he reported some discomfort when he tried to move laterally. He'll get the day off yet again Wednesday while Chelsor Cuthbert makes another start at the hot corner, batting seventh in the order. Thursday's visit with team doctors ought to provide a clearer picture for when Moustakas can be expected to return.
