Royals SS Alcides Escobar suffers knee injury Friday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar sustained a mild strain and contusion to his left knee during Friday's win over the Athletics, reports MLB.com.

Escobar was hurt when A's third baseman Brett Lawrie slid into him at second base while attempting to break up a double play in the seventh inning. The incident led to both benches clearing. Escobar immediately left the game.

After the game, Lawrie insisted he wasn't trying to injure Escobar.

"I would never try to cleat anybody," Lawrie said. "It wasn't like I overextended myself to go get him. He was right on top of the bag. That's just baseball right there."

Royals' Alcides Escobar flourishing in leadoff role
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar is in the midst of a career-high 17-game hitting streak, and manager Ned Yost credits his recent success to his role as a leadoff hitter, a move that dates back to September when the streak started, per MLB.com.

"Esky is just a good hitter," Yost said. "[Three] years ago, he had a great year, [hitting .293]. Then he had an off year [at .234] and then he had a phenomenal year last year [at .285]. He can hit."

Escobar has five hits over his last two games (10 at-bats). Through eight games this season, Escobar has a .412 batting average (14 for 34) with three doubles, seven runs scored, two walks and five RBI.

"I like it because you have to be ready right away," Escobar said. "When we're on the road, you got to get ready because you're up right away. Right away. It's good."

Royals' Yost on Alcides Escobar: 'He just never slows down'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar had quite the busy year in 2014. After playing in all 162 regular season games, he then appeared in all 15 postseason games, went to Japan for the All-Star Series and capped it off by playing three weeks of winter ball.

"He just never slows down," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "Fortunately, he has the body to do that. He just doesn't seem to wear down."

Playing every day last season didn't seem to bother Escobar, who hit .320 with a .763 OPS in September. 

"I just love to play baseball," Escobar said. "It's really all I want to do."

Escobar apparently also loves hitting atop the lineup. When Escobar moved to the leadoff spot in mid-September last season, he hit .362 with a .397 on-base percentage and .478 slugging percentage in 16 games. Yost has indicated he plans to keep Escobar in the leadoff spot.

"I like it up there," Escobar said. "I'm still trying to learn, trying to find ways to get on base and take more pitches."

Escobar would strike again in the sixth inning. After a single, Escobar would score from first on an Alex Gordon double. Escobar went on to finish 2 for 4, with two runs scored.
