Keep an eye on the lineup card for the Kansas City Royals today. Mike Moustakas was unable to play yesterday after fouling a ball off his foot. It could be a minor injury or it could be the type that lingers for far too long. If Moustakas returns today, it will be a good sign.

The Royals are working on fielding a competitive team this year, so an injury to Moustakas would hurt. However, this does not seem to be severe. It's simply a wait and see injury. The team did not even send Moustakas for X-rays. That would only happen if the pain lingered or Moustakas was limited by the injury.
Moustakas is entering his third season the Majors. He was drafted and came up with the Royals. In his career, Moustakas is a .250/.301/.395 hitter. The 24-year old third baseman has a lot of upside, but he had a rough season in 2012. He hit just .242/.296/.412.
