Royals' Alcides Escobar on leg injury: I thought my leg was broken
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

After missing two games because of a knee injury, Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar said he was glad to be back in Monday's lineup, reports MLB.com.

"It's good right now and I'm happy to be back in the lineup," Escobar said.

Escobar injured the knee during Friday's game against the Athletics when third baseman Brett Lawrie clipped Escobar's leg as he slid into second base. When the injury occurred, Escobar initially feared the worst.

"I thought I broke my leg or my ankle," Escobar said. "When I see the replay, I say 'Wow. That's hard.'"

Escobar added that he is not concerned about the play moving forward.

"Right now, I'm thinking that it's in the past," he said.

Royals SS Alcides Escobar back in the lineup, Lorenzo Cain out
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar is back in the starting lineup Monday against the Twins after missing last two games with a knee injury, according to 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City.

Escobar took a hard slide from Brett Lawrie in Friday's game against the Athletics and was forced to leave the game, which led to multiple bean balls being thrown throughout the weekend series. 

Outfielder Lorenzo Cain will get the day off Monday, with Paulo Orlando and Jarrod Dyson starting in center and right field. Cain is tearing the cover off the ball to start the year, hitting a blistering .413 with two home runs and 12 RBI in 46 at-bats.

The Royals are currently the favorites (-150) against the Twins.

'Slidegate' intensifies between Royals' Escobar, Athletics' Lawrie
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The soap opera involving Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar and Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie continued Saturday through Twitter.

It began when Lawrie slid into Escobar on Friday night, causing the latter to be escorted off the field with a sprained knee and bruising.

Escobar later told Sports Radio 610 that he felt it was a "dirty slide" and added that Oakland outfielder Sam Fuld did the same thing to him a year ago. Others chimed in, claiming Lawrie came in spikes high. But Royals teammates such as Eric Hosmer offered his view that there was nothing dirty about it the play.

The controversy continued Saturday when Escobar told the Oakland Tribune that he had not heard any apology nor received any text from Lawrie. Lawrie, however, claimed he had texted Escobar to let him know he had no intention of causing injury.
