Bubba Starling continues to disappoint
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals outfielder prospect Bubba Starling is having another rough start at the outset of the 2014 season. The 2011 first-round pick (No. 5) is hitting a disappointing .133 with one home run and six RBI through 17 games for Class A Wilmington.

Starling has four doubles and eight runs, but he has 24 strikeouts to just nine walks. He is slugging .250.

Starling has not been very productive offensively since beginning his pro career. He is batting .242 with a .337 on-base percentage, .410 slugging percentage and .747 OPS in 195 career games.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas had just one hit in five at-bats Tuesday but he made it a good one, smacking a three-run home run in his team's 8-2 win over the Indians.

After an outstanding spring performance, Moustakas has had plenty of trouble finding his stroke in the regular season, though his power is starting to come around, with all three of his home runs coming in his last seven games. He has hit .138/.208/.323 in 65 at-bats.
