Mike Moustakas surging for Royals, even without opposite-field hits

Shortly after he took over as hitting coach, Dale Sveum explained to manager Ned Yost why Moustakas struggled with this aspect of hitting. “He’s a left-handed hitter that’s a right-handed thrower,” Yost said. “So his top hand is not as strong as if he was a right-handed hitter. His dominant hand is his bottom hand. So when you get pitches out there, your top hand has to be able to — boom — hit it that way.”
