Mike Moustakas Leaves Early

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Mike Moustakas left yesterday’s game early after taking a 107mph line drive off the wrist trying to make a play at third base. X-rays were negative and it is not known if a trip to the IL is necessary. He’s most likely out for the game tonight, and he is listed as day-to-day.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Mike Moustakas to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 80.39 projected fantasy points puts him at #8 behind Eugenio Suarez and ahead of Miguel Sano. He has averaged 3.05 fantasy points in his past 272 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.25 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#9) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #10 most highly owned third baseman. Mike Moustakas is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #10 fantasy position rank.
