Mike Moustakas News
The Cincinnati Reds placed third baseman Mike Moustakas (calf) on the 10-day injured list with a left calf strain on Saturday and selected infielder Colin Moran's contract from Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding move. Moustakas' injured list stint is retroactive to Wednesday. The 33-year-old missed the last three games with his injury and will go back on the shelf. Fantasy managers in deep mixed leagues shouldn't feel compelled to hold Moose the rest of the way, as he's hit just .214/.295/.345 with seven home runs, 25 RBI, 30 runs scored and two stolen bases in his 252 at-bats for the Reds this year. Shortstop Kyle Farmer has been shifted to the hot corner in recent days, although Moran could find his way into the lineup occasionally with Matt Reynolds (hip) also on the shelf.
The Cincinnati Reds activated third baseman Mike Moustakas (calf) from the 10-day injured list on Friday and placed first baseman Joey Votto (shoulder) on the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move. The team also moved infielder Donovan Solano from the paternity list to the restricted list. Moustakas is at first base and is hitting cleanup in his return on Friday against Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Bryse Wilson. The 33-year-old has done very little for fantasy managers in 2022, hitting just .200/.289/.326 with six home runs, 21 RBI, 26 runs scored and two stolen bases in 230 at-bats. He should remain on the waiver wire in mixed leagues.
Cincinnati Reds second baseman Jonathan India (hamstring) is back at second base and batting leadoff on Tuesday against New York Mets right-hander Carlos Carrasco, while third baseman Mike Moustakas (calf) will take a seat on the bench after getting injured Monday night. Moose's injury isn't believed to be serious, but the Reds will give him at least one game off. India has been a disappointment this year after winning the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2021, although he's hitting .295 (18-for-61) with three homers and nine RBI in 16 games since the All-Star break. With Moustakas out, Kyle Farmer is at third base and hitting third in the batting order.
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.
