Moustakas is not in the lineup Wednesday versus the A's, Fox Sports reports.

It looks to be a scheduled day off for Moustakas, who has started all but one game since July 22.

Moustakas went 2-for-4 Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks with four RBI and his 14th home run of the year.

Mike Moustakas went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in the Royals' 7-1 win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

When it rains, it pours for Moustakas -- he'd hit just two home runs since June 21 and he hadn't driven in a run in his past eight games prior to Tuesday's outburst. The homers give Moustakas 12 home runs on the season to go with a .198/.262/.391 line. Games like Tuesday's remind of his potential, but the third baseman is just too inconsistent to be relied upon in fantasy realms.

Royals manager Ned Yost said Sunday that the recently activated Danny Valencia will face "most" lefties.

In other words, Mike Moustakas has regained his status as the regular third baseman against right-handers. Moustakas got his job back by slugging four homers over the last 11 games, giving him a total of eight for the season. He's still hitting just .174/.243/.363 overall, though, and remains a dicey fantasy proposition.
