Morales went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer against the White Sox on Monday.

It was his 438-foot blast that chased opposing starter Carlos Rodon with no outs in the fifth inning. Morales has homered on consecutive days and is now just one short of hitting 30 long balls for the second time in his career.

Morales went 3-for-4 with his 26th homer, two RBI and two runs against the Twins on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

He unloaded on the Twins over the course of this three-game series, smashing four homers and driving in 10 runs. Morales also has a 10-game hitting streak going; after muddling through most of the first four months (with the exception of a white-hot June), he's poised to finish on a high note and make a serious run at his second career 30-homer season.

Morales hit a pair of home runs and knocked in five runs in a 2-for-5 game in Tuesday's drubbing of the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Morales now has a ridiculous 13 RBI powered by five home runs in his past five games after mustering his third multi-homer effort of the season Tuesday. His 25 home runs is the most he's hit since he mashed 34 in his career year of 2009 as a 26-year-old. However, he has just 19 doubles this season after hitting 41 in 2015, and his lack of all-around power production has helped lower his OPS from .847 to .776.

Morales went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and two walks en route to an 11-5 win over the Twins on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Morales' three-run shot came at a crucial time for the Royals, with two outs and two runners on in the fifth inning trailing 4-2. It was an absolute bomb to right field. It was Morales' 23rd of the season, tying his best mark since 2009, and continues a recent hot stretch in which Morales is slashing .327/.386/.551 over his last 15 games.

Morales homered and knocked in two runs in a 1-for-2 game in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Morales has had a strong August, as he now owns a .275/.340/.484 line with five homers and a 9:18 BB:K in 27 games this month. With 21 homers, he's now just one away from tying his home run total from last season. He hit 23 home runs in 2013 with the Mariners, his best mark since suffering a horrendous leg injury in 2010 that also cost him the 2011 season. His career high of 34, set in 2009, appears out of reach barring a massive hot streak.

Morales is not in Thursday's lineup against the Marlins, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morales will be held out of the lineup for a third straight game, as the Royals wrap up a series in a National League park in Miami. The club will head to Boston for the weekend and regain the DH spot, so Morales figures to return to the lineup then, while serving as a pinch-hitting option Thursday.

Morales has dropped his appeal and will serve his one-game suspension Thursday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morales earned the suspension August 2 against the Rays for coming back onto the field to argue after he was ejected earlier that game. He was originally planning to appeal the suspension, but has reconciled, and will serve it Thursday as the Royals face the White Sox. He will likely be back in the lineup Friday against the Twins.
