Royals' Alcides Escobar: Records four hits, stolen base against Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcides Escobar went 4-for-5 with two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Escobar had been struggling mightily, with just one multi-hit game in his last 10 contests. His batting line is just .259/.288/.321 but he is at least making the most of the limited times he has been on base -- he already has seven stolen bases, putting him on pace for 43 this season.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Tallies two hits, drives in run in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcides Escobar went 2-for-3 with a double, a steal, an RBI and a run against the Tigers on Thursday.

We're pretty much seeing the usual out of Escobar this year, as he's now swiped four bags while hitting .254. The 29-year-old shortstop continues to hit out of the leadoff spot for the Kansas City Royals , but has only scored three runs, and his poor OBP has been a major contributor to the team's inconsistencies on offense. If current No. 9 batter Jarrod Dyson keeps hitting, he and Escobar could end up flipping spots in the order.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Collects two hits in Saturday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcides Escobar was 2-for-5 with an RBI, run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the A's.

The veteran lead-off man recorded his second straight multi-hit game, and has hit safely in five of his last six contests. Escobar was able to tally his first RBI of the season on a two-out single in the ninth off reliever Ryan Madson. The 29-year-old has started slowly in 2016, but is 4-for-9 with a walk, an RBI, two runs scored and a pair of stolen bases over his last two games.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Slump continues Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcides Escobar went 0-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts in Thursday's win over Houston.

A career .262 hitter, Escobar has gotten off to a rocky start at the dish this season, going 9-for-42 (.214) with no walks and one run in his first nine games. His past success and speed on the base paths suggest that manager Ned Yost will give him some leeway as the Kansas City Royals ' leadoff hitter until he breaks out of his slump, but a table-setter getting on base just 21.4% of the time is certainly sub-optimal. Escobar's defense is irreplaceable at shortstop for the Royals, but his slow start and relatively low ceiling at the dish makes him expendable in shallower fantasy leagues.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Opens the season in leadoff role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Escobar will lead off for the Royals in their season opener against the Mets on Sunday.

It's not surprising, considering that Escobar was handling the table-setting role at the end of last season. After posting a .293 OBP in 2015, Escobar is hardly guaranteed to remain atop the lineup card of manager Ned Yost this season, but he'll get an opportunity to begin the year in that role nonetheless.
