If you were wondering if Mike Moustakas is fixed, the answer is a resounding yes. And it only took a week! Thanks, Dale Sveum!
Mike Moustakas has rejoined the Royals. Danny Valencia has been placed on the DL related to his hand/wrist.— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughStar) June 1, 2014
Moustakas played just eight games in Omaha, hitting .355/.412/.548 with three doubles and a home run. Moose collected six hits in his last two games with the Stormchasers.
Valencia sprained his hand in last Sunday's game against the Angels, causing him to miss a few games this week, but returned in Toronto to go 0-8 with four strikeouts. With the hand apparently still bothering him, the Royals elected to bring back Moustakas.
The Royals can also make a roster move today if they elect to send Aaron Brooks back to Omaha today, although they may wait to see if Yordano Ventura can make his next start.
