Morales went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's victory over the Red Sox.

Morales has already matched his 2014 home run total of eight, and his .462 slugging percentage is over 100 points higher than the number he posted in 2014 (.338). This can partially be attributed to a five percent increase in his hard hit ball rate, which is now up to 35 percent. The 32-year-old Morales also owns a .350 wOBA, his best number in that category since his prime years with the Angels. He should continue to be a solid fantasy asset moving forward.

Morales provided all the offense in Friday's game, as he went 3-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in a 5-0 win over St. Louis.

Morales simply abused Cardinals starter Lance Lynn, taking him deep in the first inning, then again in the third, and finally singling off him for good measure. Despite the fact that he only has a fairly modest six homers, Morales has been a revelation with the Royals this year, as his 37 RBI are the most in the American League.
