Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar returns to lineup Tuesday
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar (elbow) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. 

X-rays were negative after Escobar was hit by a pitch and forced to leave Friday's game, and it seems the swelling has now diminished enough to where he can resume his duties as the Royals' starting shortstop. Escobar is hitting just .183/.194/.217 in September, his second straight month with a sub-.500 OPS.

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar held out of Saturday's lineup
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar (elbow) is out of the lineup Saturday against the Tigers. Escobar exited Friday's game early with an elbow bruise and is being labeled as day to day after X-rays showed no broken bones.

The Royals will use Christian Colon at shortstop Saturday, but Escobar is expected to be ready to return to the field in the near future.

Royals SS Alcides Escobar left game with an elbow bruise
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar was forced to leave Friday night's game early with an elbow bruise, but x-rays came back negative for any further damage, Andy McCullough of The Kansas City Star reports.

Escobar took a rough-looking pitch to the elbow in the 10th inning, but did later stay in to run the bases. He was then replaced by Christian Colon at shortstop in the bottom of the 10th. There's a chance he misses time over the weekend, but no injury beyond bruising likely makes this a minor, day-to-day issue.

Alcides Escobar gives Royals walk-off win on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar was the hero on Saturday, as he drove in the game-winning run in the bottom of the 10th to beat the Astros 2-1. Escobar went 2 for 4 in the game, but his final hit was the one that mattered most.

Hit was the third walk-off hit of his career. He's been swining the bat well lately, hitting .308 (12 for 39) over his past nine games.
