Royals 3B Mike Moustakas placed on 15-day DL with torn ACL

The Kansas City Royals announced that third baseman Mike Moustakas has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with an ACL tear in his right knee.

Moustakas missed the last three games after colliding with outfielder Alex Gordon on Sunday at the Chicago White Sox.

The Royals had activated Moustakas last Saturday from the 15-day disabled list, after he had recovered from a small fracture in his left thumb.

Moustakas is batting .240 with 7 HR and 13 RBI this season.
