Royals | Mike Moustakas wearing boot

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (calf) is wearing a walking boot while dealing with tightness in his left calf, but the team said the walking boot is only a precautionary measure to relieve pressure in his calf. He's hitting .293 with four home runs and 13 RBIs since the All-Star break. Manager Ned Yost said it's possible Moustakas will land on the disabled list. SS Elliot Johnson started at third Wednesday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson isn't the answer if Moustakas lands on the DL. That's why the Royals traded for infield utility man Emilio Bonifacio Wednesday. Bonifacio's worth will increase in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues if Moose is sidelined longer.
