Mike Moustakas News
The Cincinnati Reds have activated third baseman Mike Moustakas from the COVID-19 injured list. He is starting at the hot corner and batting seventh in Monday's game against right-hander Merrill Kelly and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Moustakas was on the COVID-19 injured list for exactly a week. Brandon Drury served as the team's primary third baseman with Moustakas out, but Drury is shifting back to the keystone for Monday's game. Moustakas has struggled at the plate so far this year. Over 40 games, he's hit .200/.314/.308 with three home runs, 11 RBI and 17 runs.
Cincinnati Reds third baseman Mike Moustakas has been placed on the injured list. However, the Reds have not given an injury designation for Moustakas, so this could be COVID-19 related. The organization should clarify his status later in the day, but outfielder TJ Friedl has been recalled from the minors. The 26-year-old has struggled to find any consistency at the plate this season. It sounds like fantasy managers could be without Moustakas for at least 10 days.
The Cincinnati Reds activated third baseman Mike Moustakas from the COVID-19 injured list on Tuesday. The veteran wound up only spending one day on the list. Outfielder Ronnie Dawson, who was called up from Triple-A on Monday, is heading back to Triple-A on Tuesday. Moustakas has appeared in 19 games so far this year and he's slashing .238/.310/.333 with one home run, six RBI and seven runs. He's been mostly hitting third or fourth in the lineup lately and should be back in one of those spots for Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
In his first year with the Cincinnati Reds, second baseman/third basemanMike Moustakas struggled to stay on the field, playing just 44 of the team's 60 games during the shortened 2020 season. When he was on the field, however, he was the same old guy. He hit home runs and drove in runs at a strong rate (30 homers, 100 RBI) and walked enough (11%) to keep fantasy managers afloat in on-base percentage. Given how long he has been in the league, you might be surprised to find out that he will be just 32 years old for the duration of the 2021 season. The Moose got a boost this offseason with the news that the Reds are planning on moving Eugenio Suarez back to shortstop. This makes Moustakas the everyday third baseman, giving him versatility with 2B/3B eligibility on every site. A great pick at his current price.
