Mike Moustakas

The Mike Moustakas Breakout Season continued strong last week. It is amazing to how much of a difference there has been between the Moustakas that the Kansas City Royals have this season compared to the years past.

Last week, Moustakas produced a .444/.444/.611 batting line, slugging three doubles and driving in two runs. In his 18 at bats, Moustakas only struck out once. His new found ability to make contact and drive the ball the other way has been a joy to watch.

Perhaps the most telling statistic about Moustakas thus far involves hit hit location. This season, Mike Moustakas has 25 hits to the opposite field, the most in baseball. The shift is rapidly being turned into a thing of the past, as Moustakas has become a completely different player this year.

Mike Moustakas has been an important part of the Royals lineup, and it is easy to see why. He has not shown any signs of slowing down thus far, and the breakout seems to be just about official at this point.
