2018 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: BREWERS PICK UP MIKE MOUSTAKAS

While much was made about how veteran third baseman Mike Moustakas failed to generate much of any interest in free agency last winter, there was still no debating the fact that his power bat could serve as a help not only to the fantasy baseball community but also to his real-life major league team.  Moustakas found a new home late Friday night as the Kansas City Royals sent him packing to the Milwaukee Brewers for a package of prospects and from a fantasy baseball angle, the move works out nicely for him in that he goes from a pitching-dominant park to an offensive haven.  As far as the numbers were concerned, Moustakas' power has been very good once again this season with 20 home runs and 62 RBI in 417 at-bats but his batting average has gone into the gutter of late in dropping to an overall shaky .249 mark.  Considering last season Moustakas batted a solid .272 with his 38 home runs and that qualifies as a sure letdown.  Now with regards to that power, Moustakas' 38 homers last season is not happening again and that smelled like it belonged in the outlier bin as soon as he put the finishing touches on that performance.  Be that as it may, Moustakas' home run rate should go up in Milwaukee and his arrival there will shift incumbent hot corner man Travis Shaw to first base where the latter will gain some additional and more valuable versatility.  All in all, a win-win scenario for all involved.
