Mike Moustakas Newsbeat

O will determine how high Royals rebound - SweetSpot Blog - ESPN

Maybe, just maybe, Mike Moustakas isn’t very good.

Oddly enough, speculation about Moustakas’ short-term future is swirling even as he’s tied for the team lead with four homers. It’s the singles and doubles that have been elusive. Moustakas is an amazing 0-for-25 while hitting a ground ball or “short line drive” against a shifted defense this season. According to Baseball Info Solutions, opponents have employed a shift against him 62 times already this year, compared to only 23 times for all of 2013.
