ST. PETERSBURG -- Third baseman Mike Moustakas joined the growing roster of medically afflicted Royals players on Wednesday.
Moustakas was bumped from the starting lineup against the Rays because of flu.
"He was throwing up all night," manager Ned Yost said before the rubber game.
"Moose is in the training room looking like death warmed over," Yost said.
"I heard [Vargas] was sick, then Moose came in sick and now I'm like, 'Oh, Lord, I hope this isn't an epidemic,'" Yost said. "But everybody [else] is doing OK."
