Royals' Alcides Escobar: Drives in two runs Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run during Wednesday's win over the Astros.

This was a rare strong outing, as Escobar sports a lackluster .183/.206/.228 slash line for the season. Additionally, the 30-year-old veteran has stolen just a single base, so his fantasy value is currently at an all-time low. Manager Ned Yost remains committed to him, so despite Escobar's meager offensive numbers, the shortstop's playing time doesn't appear to be in jeopardy.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Dropped to eighth spot Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar will start at shortstop and bat eighth Monday against the Astros, Julia Morales of Root Sports Southwest reports.

Escobar went hitless in nine at-bats over the last two games, but his move from the leadoff spot to the bottom third of the order is less of a demotion than it is a reward for Whit Merrifield, who will assume table-setting duties after extending his hitting streak to 19 games Sunday. So long as Merrifield is able to stay hot at the dish, Escobar may be forced to settle for a less favorable spot in the lineup.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Nabs two hits, RBI in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-5 with an RBI in Wednesday's loss to Detroit.

A leadoff hitter batting .186 with an OBP of .212 is about as bad as it gets, but manager Ned Yost continues to deploy Escobar in the lineup's top spot. Perhaps the most troubling aspect of Escobar's campaign is that he has zero steals on just two attempts through the first two months after notching at least 17 steals in each of the previous six seasons. The shortstop showed some signs of life in the recent series against Detroit, going 5-for-13 over with a pair of RBI over the three-game set. Still, it would take a lot more than a decent series to give owners a reason to consider starting Escobar across the large majority of fantasy formats.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Ropes pair of hits Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a sacrifice fly in Monday's 10-7 loss to the Tigers.

The light-hitting leadoff man drove home his third run in the last two games and now has 11 RBI in May despite slashing just .185/.211/.241 during the month. Escobar has hit safely in six of his last eight games, a stretch that's included a pair of doubles and four RBI overall.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Two-run double the difference in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-5 with a two-run double and a run in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Indians.

Escobar's lone hit of the day proved to be a big one, as his two-run double in the sixth inning off Danny Salazar broke a 2-2 tie. He got the Royals on the board in the first inning after reaching on an error by Jason Kipnis, scoring on a Salvador Perez sac fly. Despite collecting hits in four of his last six games, Escobar's average still sits well below the Mendoza Line, and his .205 OBP has contributed to him failing to steal a single base this season. He's averaged nearly 25 stolen bases in his previous six seasons with the Royals.
