  • Nationals' Alcides Escobar: Remaining in Washington

    Escobar agreed to a one-year deal to remain a National on Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Escobar performed capably in 75 games for the Nationals this season, hitting .288/.340/.404. He comes with minimal upside, as he's heading into his age-35 season and owns a career 72 wRC+, but he should remain a serviceable backup at the very least heading into next season.

  • Nationals' Alcides Escobar: Goes yard in loss

    Escobar went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-2 loss to Boston.

    The shortstop got Washington on the board in the seventh inning with his fourth homer of the year. There hasn't been much power in his game, but Escobar batted .288 (36-for-125) in September and shouldn't slow down over the final weekend of the season. He owns a .288/.337/.404 slash line with three stolen bases, 28 RBI and 52 runs scored across 340 plate appearances this year.

  • Nationals' Alcides Escobar: Piling up hits

    Escobar went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk Tuesday in the Nationals' 3-1 loss to the Rockies.

    Since Washington added him to its big-league roster in early July, Escobar hasn't been a premium source of counting-stats production (three home runs, three stolen bases, 50 runs and 27 RBI), but he's racked up hits at a prolific rate. Dating back to the beginning of July, Escobar ranks 15th in the majors in hits (87), propelling him to a .287 average during that time.

  • Nationals' Alcides Escobar: Delivers full line in win

  • Nationals' Alcides Escobar: Notches steal Sunday

    Escobar went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 3-0 win over Colorado.

    The light-hitting shortstop made his impact in the first inning with a single and a stolen base before scoring on a Yadiel Hernandez single. Escobar has been solid in September, batting .266 (21-for-79) in his last 18 games. He's slashing .280/.326/.379 with a pair of home runs, three steals, 22 RBI and 42 runs scored through 284 plate appearances overall.

    Escobar went 4-for-6 with an RBI in Wednesday's 8-6 loss to Miami.

    The shortstop collected four singles in his fourth multi-hit effort of the month. Escobar has been a solid contributor for Washington with a .278/.327/.379 slash line across 271 plate appearances. He's added two home runs, two stolen bases, 15 doubles, 21 RBI and 41 runs scored in 59 games while serving as the team's primary shortstop since the start of July.

  • Nationals' Alcides Escobar: Big day during twin bill

    Escobar went 3-for-7 with a double, a home run, three runs scored and five RBI across both games of Saturday's doubleheader split with the Mets.

    Two errors in the matinee helped ruin Erick Fedde's day, but Escobar atoned for his shaky glovework with his bat, driving in three runs in the first game before swatting his second homer of the season off Tylor Megill in the fifth inning of the nightcap. The veteran shortstop hit second in both contests, and in 48 games for the Nats he's slashing a surprising .283/.335/.384 -- numbers that would give him the second-best OPS of his career, behind only the .721 mark he reached in 2012 with the Royals.

    Escobar is dealing with a contusion on the inside of his left knee, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

  • Nationals' Alcides Escobar: Exits after foul tip

    Escobar exited Monday's game against the Phillies after fouling a ball off his left knee, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

  • Nationals' Alcides Escobar: Hitting streak ends

    Escobar went 0-for-4 in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Mets.

    The 0-for-4 showing spells an end to Escobar's 10-game hitting streak, a span in which the 34-year-old infielder slashed .364/.404/.432 with eight runs, four RBI and a stolen base. Though Escobar doesn't necessarily fit with the 55-74 Nationals' rebuilding plan, he looks fairly secure as the team's everyday shortstop due to a lack of younger, more appealing alternatives on the 40-man roster.

  • Nationals' Alcides Escobar: Back in action Wednesday

    Escobar (wrist) will start at shortstop and bat second Wednesday against the Phillies.
