About the only thing missing from the Royals this season (outside of maybe another starting pitcher) is a team mascot.

Third baseman Mike Moustakas may have taken care of that. Before the Royals’ 5-1 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Moustakas showed off his new puppy:

Andy McCullough, the Star’s award-winning beat writer, said Gus is a miniature Australian shepherd and that noted dog lover Danny Duffy instantly fell in love with Gus.

After the game, Moustakas let Gus take a stroll on the field at Kauffman Stadium.

Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas took his 2-month-old Australian shepherd, Gus, out for a walk on the field before Friday's game against the Houston Astros.
