KC’s Moustakas showing improvement from calf injury

Third baseman Mike Moustakas moved one step closer to returning to the Royals’ lineup Friday by taking ground balls prior to the first game of a doubleheader against Detroit at Comerica Park. The Royals haven’t ruled out the possibility that Moustakas could start Saturday or Sunday, but a best guess for a full-time return is Tuesday’s opener against the Chicago White Sox at Kauffman Stadium.
