Royals place Moustakas on DL with torn ACL

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Royals placed third baseman Mike Moustakas on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Such injuries usually sideline a player for a long period. Moustakas said he will seek a second opinion on the injury.

"We're still talking with the doctor, get a second opinion, see where we're at," Moustakas said. "You can't rule anything out. I just want to go out there and be healthy and get prepared to play baseball again. That's where I'm at right now."
