Moustakas went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Moustakas hammered a 3-2 offering from Johnny Cueto 406 feet to right field in the second inning to put the Royals on the board. With 18 long balls on the year, only Aaron Judge has more in the American League. Moustakas' BB/K is at a career-low level, but he is poised to set career-highs in home runs and RBI. His .565 slugging percentage ranks him second among third baseman in the American League.

Moustakas went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

He's up to 17 home runs through 56 games, putting the third baseman on pace for a whopping 44 blasts this season (his career high of 22 was set in 2015). Moustakas also has a shot to drive in 100 runs for the first time in his seven MLB seasons, and his current .271/.310/.528 slash line is solidly ahead of his .249/.304/.414 career mark.

Moustakas had a huge game against the Astros on Tuesday, going 4-for-5 with a double, a homer, three RBI and two runs.

EDGE Analysis

His 15th long ball of the year ended the game in the bottom of the ninth and put a cap on a brilliant day for Moustakas, who's hit safely in six straight games, going 11-for-24 with two homers and three doubles in that span. His batting average is now up to a respectable .275, which complements his power output quite nicely. If Moustakas finds his way to a new team with a better lineup prior to the trade deadline, his fantasy value could really take off.

The Royals are ready to field offers for Moustakas as the summer's trade deadline comes into focus, Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was only a matter of time before the team folded its hand in 2017. With a rebuild in store, Moustakas holds solid trade value for the flailing club. His .255 batting average may not be appealing, but the third baseman has stroked his way to a career-high .510 slugging percentage through 49 games. Packing up and moving out of the Royals' lackluster lineup should improve Moustakas' fantasy value.

Moustakas went 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs Saturday against Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Through 48 games, Moustakas' 14 home runs and .513 slugging percentage lead the team, while his 29 RBI ranks second-best among Royals. He's tied for the club lead with 26 runs, too. On the flip side, the 28-year-old's 17-percent strikeout rate is his worst since 2012 -- not to mention a killer in leagues that penalize whiffs.

Moustakas is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After providing three homers in a four-game stretch, Moustakas has hit a rough patch over the last three contests, recording one hit in 11 at-bats. He wouldn't stand a great chance at getting back on track Wednesday with lefty Matt Boyd on the mound, so Moustakas will hit the bench in favor of Cheslor Cuthbert.

Moustakas went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-4 win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

His homer to right center in the fifth inning tied the game for the Royals. Moustakas is now slashing .249/.282/.503 on the season, and has been the victim of some considerable bad luck with a .240 BABIP. His power stroke is working on the campaign, as he now has 12 home runs to go along with 25 RBI.

Moustakas is not in the lineup Friday against the Twins, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

EDGE Analysis

After starting the past nine games for Kansas City, Moustakas will get the night off with southpaw Hector Santiago taking the hill for Minnesota. Cheslor Cuthbert will pick up a start at the hot corner in his stead.

Moustakas went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and four RBI in Sunday's victory over Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

The third baseman's blast, his ninth of the year, led the Royals to a five-run fourth inning. Moustakas' four RBI were a season high and propelled his team to a come-from-behind victory that finished off a three-game sweep of the O's. He's off to a fine start -- especially when taking into account the Royals' anemic offense -- slashing .250/.282/.493 with 18 RBI and 19 runs through 34 games.
