FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: TORN ACL FINISHED MIKE MOUSTAKAS FOR 2015

While not considering a top third base option in fantasy baseball terms, Kansas City Royals hot corner veteran Mike Moustakas still proved himself quite useful over the last two years as he further refined his batting approach and added power as he moved closer to his prime.  After years of struggling mightily with his batting average, Moustakas posted an impressive for him .284 mark with 22 home runs in 549 at-bats.  Now turning 27 when a player begins to tap into his most power, Moustakas came out and slammed 7 home runs the first month-plus of 2016.  While the .240 average brought back memories of struggles past, Moustakas was still holding his own as an every day fantasy baseball third baseman.  Soon though disaster would strike in the form of a torn ACL in his knee which was confirmed Thursday and that means Moustakas will miss the remainder of the 2016 season.  Again we are not talking Josh Donaldson, Kris Bryant, or Manny Machado here but in 12-team leagues and especially AL-only, Moustakas is a moderate loss whose power was his best asset.  Obviously cut Moustakas loose and look to the waiver wire for reinforcements.
