Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Moves to DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar served as designated hitter and went 0-for-4 in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Dodgers.

Escobar was given a break from playing third base, but it did nothing to wake up his bat from its early-season doldrums. The 31-year-old infielder is batting .132 and has a .379 OPS with 13 strikeouts in 38 at-bats (34.0 K%).

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Struggles in series with Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-12 with five strikeouts while starting in the first three games of the Diamondbacks' season-opening series with the Padres.

The Padres' pitching staff has gotten the better of the Diamondbacks' hitters thus far in the four-game set, as Arizona scored only six runs in total through three contests. Escobar's slow start looms larger than normal in an abbreviated campaign, but his outstanding production over his prior one and a half seasons with Arizona should give fantasy managers faith that he'll heat up sooner rather than later.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Quiet spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar batted .208 (5-for-24) with one extra-base hit, two walks and six RBI over nine Cactus League games.

Escobar hit third in the order in all nine games and is expected to be a key piece in the middle of the Diamondbacks' lineup in 2020. He launched a career-best 35 home runs in 2019, his third straight year with more than 20 homers, but there's reason for skepticism about his 2019 achievements: the suspicion about the 2019 baseball, a hard-hit rate that was below league average, and his track record as a power hitter. However, factoring in a regression, Escobar is still worthy of a spot on fantasy rosters. He'll be the everyday starter at third base in 2020, but the 31-year-old infielder is also eligible at second base (32 games played). It's at second base where Escobar gives fantasy teams an edge even with a statistical correction.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-2 with two RBI in Friday's spring game against the Mariners.

Escobar slotted into the third spot in the batting order while starting at third base. He may also qualify as a second baseman after playing 32 games there in 2019, but Ketel Marte is expected to see more action at second in 2020. That is the domino effect of adding Startling Marte, who will start in center field, allowing Ketel Marte to return to his natural spot at second.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Resting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar will sit Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Escobar played the entirety of Tuesday's 19-inning win, going 2-for-6 with a pair of walks. He'll get a well-deserved rest Wednesday, with Jake Lamb starting at the hot corner.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Blasts 35th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two runs scored and a walk to help the Diamondbacks to a 7-5 victory over the Marlins on Monday.

Escobar had gone hitless in his last seven at-bats coming into the contest, but he snapped out of it with his sixth-inning solo blast off Pablo Lopez. The 30-year-old's productive campaign at the dish continues, as he's up to 35 homers and 114 RBI on the season, both of which are easily career-best marks. He's also slashing .271/.322/.528 in 148 games.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Hits 34th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a 3-2 loss against the Mets on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old accounted for both of Arizona's runs, driving in one on a single in the first and smashing a solo homer during the eighth. With this performance, his incredible year continues. Escobar has new career highs in homers, RBI and runs, and he already set those new benchmarks in each category earlier in the season. He's batting .272 with 34 home runs, 112 RBI, 90 runs and five steals in 570 at-bats this year.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Another day, another HR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Dodgers.

Escobar's eighth-inning home run off Los Angeles closer Kenley Jansen provided Arizona with a two-run cushion it needed as the Dodgers plated a run in the ninth. It was the third straight game with a homer for Escobar and fourth in the last week. He's driven in nine runs over the last six games to grab a share of the RBI lead in MLB with 109.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Cranks 31st homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

Escobar swatted a two-run homer off Tony Gonsolin in the sixth inning, giving the Diamondbacks a 3-2 lead. The longball was his team-leading and career-best 31st of the season while slashing .270/.323/.531.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Reaches 30-homer mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in the Diamondbacks' 11-5 win over the Dodgers on Thursday.

Escobar officially reached the 30-homer plateau for the first time in his career with a sixth-inning three-run blast off Joe Kelly, bringing his career-high RBI total up to 106 in the process. The 30-year-old is also slashing a solid .267/.320/.522 across 525 at-bats.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Reaches 100 RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-4 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 8-7 win over the Rockies.

Escobar's two-run triple capped a five-run sixth inning, and he plated the runs that turned out to be difference in the game. The two RBI were Nos. 99 and 100, the first time in his career he's reached triple digits in that category. "Anytime I see people on base, my thing is to be aggressive," he said. "I'm an aggressive guy at home plate, but when I have an opportunity to bring a guy home, I'm more aggressive." The 30-year-old infielder has delivered with men in scoring position, posting a .305 average and .946 OPS this season.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Homers, doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-6 with a solo home run and a double in Friday's 10-9 loss to the Giants.

With no outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, Escobar turned on a pitch right down the middle for a home run off reliever Tony Watson. The long ball soon sparked a rally as the Diamondbacks scored five runs in the inning to even up the score at 7-7. After battling through a 2-for-24 slump recently, Escobar has hit safely in each of the last three games. He now has 28 home runs, 97 RBI and 75 runs scored this season while batting .273/.329/.530.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Sitting against righty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies.

Escobar will receive a day off against right-hander Jeff Hoffman. The 30-year-old has gone just 2-for-24 in the past five games, so hopefully Tuesday's rest day will help him right the ship. Jake Lamb is starting at third base, batting fifth.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Snaps hitless run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 9-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Escobar extended a hitless streak to 15 at-bats before a sixth-inning single that preceded his solo shot in the eighth. It was Escobar's 26th home run in 2019. Since the All-Star break, he's knocked in 27 runs in 27 games, placing him among the leaders in RBI (94, second in MLB).

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Pads RBI lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 0-for-3 with a walk, stolen base and RBI In Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Phillies.

Escobar collected his 93rd RBI on a sacrifice fly in the third inning, allowing him to inch ahead of the Braves' Freddie Freeman (92) for the major-league lead. The steal was also a welcome addition for fantasy managers, who likely didn't draft Escobar with the expectation that he would offer much in the category. He still only has five stolen bases on the campaign, but that actually matches his previous career-best total from 2017.

August 7, 2019 03:52 PM
Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Blasts 25th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, two runs scored, three RBI and a walk in the Diamondbacks' 8-4 win over the Phillies on Tuesday.

Escobar posted just a .762 OPS in July, but he's already cranked three long balls since the calendar flipped to August, including this fourth-inning blast off Jake Arrieta. It was his 25th homer of the season. Coming off his career-best campaign last year, Escobar has been even better in 2019, as he's now sporting an excellent .282/.339/.537 slash line and has knocked in 92 runs across 489 plate appearances.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Career night against Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 3-for-5 with a walk, two home runs and seven RBI in Saturday's 18-7 rout of the Nationals.

He got the Arizona offense rolling in the first inning with a two-run blast off Stephen Strasburg, then added a three-run shot in the eighth off Brian Dozier after Washington threw in the towel and began using position players on the mound. Escobar's seven RBI were a career high, while the offensive explosion ended a 12-game homer drought for the 30-year-old -- and gave him new career highs with 24 home runs and 88 RBI on the season.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Notches two triples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar started at second base and went 2-for-4 with a walk, two triples, an RBI and two runs scored in Monday's win over the Orioles.

Escobar has tripled three times in the last four games, giving him nine for the season, tied for most in MLB with Whit Merrifield and Adalberto Mondesi. He's been getting regular duty at second base lately despite the return of Wilmer Flores, who will see action whenever a left-hander is on the mound. Monday's start was Escobar's 12th at the keystone.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Homers, triples in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-5 with a home run, a triple and two RBI in Friday's 10-7 victory over the Brewers.

Escobar swatted a game-tying RBI triple in the third inning off Jhoulys Chacin, then launched a solo homer off Jay Jackson in the fourth inning to extend the Diamondbacks' lead to 8-4. The 30-year-old has been a key component in Arizona's lineup this season, slashing .291/.344/.554 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI and 63 runs scored.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Starts at second with Flores return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar started at second base and went 1-for-4 in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Brewers.

Escobar got the start at the keystone despite the return of Wilmer Flores from the injured list Thursday. Manager Torey Lovullo outlined his likely lineup deployment with Flores on the active roster to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic: Flores will start whenever a left-hander is throwing. With a right-hander on the mound, as was the case Thursday, Escobar will draw the start at second base while Jake Lamb slots in at third.
