Kansas City Royals second baseman Mike Moustakas exited last night’s win over the Miami Marlins after experiencing tightness in his left calf, an injury that has the team considering him day to day, according to Dick Kaegel of MLB.com. Moustakas was replaced by recently acquired infielder Jamey Carroll in the fifth inning after he suffered his calf ailment. The injury was sustained while Moustakas was running the bases. He singled in the fourth frame and scored on Justin Maxwell’s triple off of Marlins starter Tom Koehler. Manager Ned Yost told reporters that Moustakas experienced tightness in his calf rounding second base. "He felt it starting to get tight rounding second base," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "He came in, scored, went back out and just continued to get tight so he's going to be day to day." Considering Miguel Tejada’s recent calf injury, the Royals will be thin when it comes to infield depth if Moustakas is required to miss an extended stretch. The 24-year-old will be re-evaluated today, and the Royals are hoping for the best. Kansas City has been on a tear since the All-Star break, and so has Moustakas. He’s hit .293 while driving in 13 runs over the second half of the season after struggling to a batting average of only .215 prior to the break. On the year, Moustakas has maintained a batting line of .231/.289/.366 with 18 doubles and 10 home runs. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
