Alcides Escobar finally puts one over the wall
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

It took 17 games, but Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar finally got one over the wall Sunday afternoon against the Twins.

Escobar took Phil Hughes deep for a two-run home run in the seventh inning. He added a double and finished 2 for 3 with a walk, two runs scored and two RBI in an 8-3 defeat. He is hitting .298 with one home run and seven RBI in 57 at-bats.

Alcides Escobar knocks three-run double in win Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar went 1 for 3 and smacked a three-run double in his team's 4-2 win over the Rays Monday.

Escobar's double proved to be critical, as it put his team up 4-0 in the sixth inning before the Rays plated two in the ninth. The Royals shortstop entered Monday's game just 1 for 17 on the season. Perhaps the big extra-base hit will give him the kick he needs to step up offensively.

Manager preaching patience with slumping pair
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ned Yost is espousing patience in regard to Royals slumping third baseman Mike Moustakas and shortstop Alcides Escobar, who are a combined 0 for 23 to start the season. He believes in giving players at least 100 plate appearances before making judgments.

"These are all guys that have been there before," Yost told the Kansas City Star. "Not everybody starts off on fire. At the end of the year, these guys' numbers are all going to be about what they should be, what we think they're going to be."

Moustakas has been particularly disappointing after a fine spring. He is coming off a disastrous 2013 season in which he batted just .233 with a .287 on-base percentage. He hit just 12 home runs with 42 RBI in 472 at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Returning to the lineup one day earlier than expected, Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar went 1 for 3 with a double in his team's 9-3 loss to the Reds Friday.

Escboar had been sidelined since March 9 while recovering from a sore shoulder. He's played in just four Cactus League games, going 2 for 9 at the plate.
