News: Moustakas and the Royals avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.64 million deal.
Impact: Moustakas was a key part of the Royals' run to the World Series, but he struggled in 140 regular season games, hitting just .212 with 15 home runs and a .632 OPS. The 26-year-old will return for another season as the starting third baseman, but he'll likely need to display marked improvement for the organization to commit to him long-term.
