Royals' Alcides Escobar: Royals exercise option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals picked up their option on Escobar's contract for the 2017 season, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports.

Escobar has been a pillar of the Royals' infield since he joined the team in 2011, so their decision to exercise their option on his contract comes as no surprise. However, he turned in another disappointing season at the plate and hit to the tune of .261/.292/.350 over 162 games.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Homers in win over Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar hit a three-run homer, his fourth, in a 1-for-4 game in Monday's win over the Yankees.

After homering twice in his first 126 games, Escobar now has gone yard twice in his past five games, a stretch in which he has also doubled thrice and knocked in seven runs. This isn't Escobar's game, of course. With four home runs, he topped his marks from 2014 and 2015 and is now just one off from his career high set back in 2011.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Homers in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, two RBI and scored twice in Thursday's game against the Marlins.

Escobar's fourth-inning shot was his third of the year, matching his total from each of the past two seasons. The shortstop's numbers won't pop open any eyes, but he has made some minor improvements since the All-Star break. Escobar is striking out less and walking more than he did in the first half of 2016, leading to a higher OBP since mid-July.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Hitting eighth Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Escobar is batting eighth in Wednesday's game against the White Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

For the second day in a row, Escobar is out of the leadoff spot and batting towards the bottom of the order. Escobar's struggles at the plate have intensified, as he's posted a bleak .220/.250/.253 line since the All-Star break.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Cranks out second bomb of 2016 on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs Sunday against the Blue Jays.

Escobar left the yard for the second time this season to give the Royals a three-run lead in the fifth inning of a game they held on to win. This was his first multi-hit effort since July 18, and he's now slashing .253/.279/.310. After putting together solid seasons in 2014 and 2015, his slash line numbers have declined across the board in 2016.
