Moustakas, who exited Tuesday's game against the Padres with a left hand contusion, will not be in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale, Sophia Minnaert of FSN Wisconsin reports.
While Moustakas will be held out at least one day as a result of being hit by a pitch Tuesday, X-rays taken on his hand came back negative, so there is reason to believe he will be back on the field in short order. Barring a roster move, Travis Shaw will likely man the hot corner for the Brewers on Wednesday.
Moustakas was removed from Tuesday's game in San Diego after being hit by a pitch on the left hand, Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.
Moustakas has been playing through a fractured finger on his right hand for most of the season and is now dealing with a potential issue on his left hand. The 30-year-old briefly remained in the contest before being replaced at third base by Travis Shaw. According to Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Moustakas was diagnosed with a left hand contusion.
Moustakas went 2-for-5 and hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the 13th inning of Wednesday's 14-inning victory over the Astros.
Moustakas has been red hot of late, going 17-for-46 (.370) with eight home runs, 13 RBI and 13 runs over his last 11 games. His playing time has not been affected by the return of fellow infielder Travis Shaw, as he has started every game -- six at second base and two at third -- since Shaw was activated from the injured list June 4.
Moustakas went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Pirates.
Moustakas hammered a first-pitch strike in the eighth inning for a two-run homer, putting the Brewers on top 4-2. The 30-year-old has now left the yard in three of his last four contests, putting him at 20 home runs through 59 games this season.
Moustakas went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk during a 5-3 victory against the Pirates on Saturday.
The 30-year-old now has three homers in the last three games and four long balls this month. Since May 22, he's gone deep eight times in 57 at-bats. This surge has propelled Moustakas among the home run leaders in the league with 19 this year. He is also hitting .275 with 41 RBI, 41 runs and three steals in 229 at-bats this season.
