Third baseman Mike Moustakas has been promoted from Triple-A Omaha, according to Bob Dutton on Twitter. Moustakas, 22, is hitting .287 with 10 home runs and a .347 on-base percentage in 55 games at Triple-A. 

The Royals now have an arsenal of offensive guns with Eric Hosmer, Billy Butler, and now left fielder Alex Gordon. The Royals are 8.5 games back and hope their four first-round picks can turn the Royals into a winning franchise.
