Player Notes
Mike Moustakas is getting a second opinion on his right knee from Dr. James Andrews.

Advice: Moustakas was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee last week following a collision with teammate Alex Gordon. The second opinion was planned and isn't expected to change anything. The Royals aren't counting on having him in their lineup again until 2017.

Royals manager Ned Yost confirmed Mike Moustakas will miss the rest of the year with a torn ACL.

Advice: Moustakas is getting a second opinion but Yost isn't optimistic. "To lose two All-Stars on one play is kind of tough," said Yost. "But you just deal with it." Moustakas should be ready for the start of spring training next year. With Moustakas done for the season and Alex Gordon sidelined with a broken wrist, Kansas City's bid for a third consecutive AL pennant isn't off to a great start.

Royals placed 3B Mike Moustakas on the 15-day disabled list with an ACL tear in his right knee.

Advice: The move is retroactive to May 23. It's a tough break for Moustakas, who was activated from the disabled list Saturday after missing two weeks with a fractured thumb. Moustakas injured his knee in a collision with Alex Gordon in only his second game back and now faces another extended absence. This injury could be a season-ender. The 27-year-old has hit only .240 this year with seven homers in 27 games. The Royals called up Brett Eibner from Triple-A Omaha in the corresponding roster move.

Mike Moustakas will have his bruised knee examined by team doctors on Thursday in Kansas City.

Advice: Moustakas has been held out of the Royals' starting lineup since banging his knee against Alex Gordon on Sunday afternoon in Chicago. Gordon took the brunt of that collision -- he's already been placed on the disabled list with a broken scaphoid bone in his right wrist -- but Moustakas is now having serious problems too. Per beat writer Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com, the third baseman was able to take swings Wednesday but had issues doing any sort of lateral movement. He could soon join Gordon on the DL. Cheslor Cuthbert is starting at the hot corner Wednesday afternoon in Minnesota.

Mike Moustakas (knee) remains absent from the Royals' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Twins.

Advice: Moustakas has now missed three straight games with a knee contusion that he suffered Sunday in a collision with Alex Gordon. He's still considered day-to-day. Cheslor Cuthbert will start at third base and bat seventh Wednesday against Twins righty Tyler Duffey.

Mike Moustakas is day-to-day with a knee contusion.

Advice: Moustakas presumably banged up the knee in a collision with Alex Gordon on Sunday. Cheslor Cuthbert has returned to the active roster now that Gordon is on the disabled list, but Whit Merrifield is playing third base Monday. Moose should be back in there soon.

Mike Moustakas is not in Monday's lineup against the Twins.

Advice: Moustakas was in the original lineup, so perhaps something is ailing him from Sunday's collision with teammate Alex Gordon. Whit Merrifield will fill in at third base.
