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.

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.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Blasts two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-7 with two home runs and five RBI in a 19-4 win over the Rangers on Wednesday.

Escobar started the game off with a two-run home run in the first inning and added a three-run shot in the sixth inning. The switch-hitter took the Rangers deep from both sides of the plate and continues to mash lefties with a 1.106 OPS. Escobar has a .290/.344/.546 slash line with 21 home runs on the season.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Launches 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Cardinals.

It was his first long ball since June 26, but Escobar has hardly been quiet in that time, slashing .405/.425/.541 in the 10 games between homers. On the year, the 30-year-old infielder is hitting .295 with 19 home runs and 68 RBI in 91 games, putting him on pace for career highs in all three categories.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Racks up three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 3-for-4 with a single, double and triple with an RBI in Sunday's victory over the Rockies.

Escobar tripled in the first inning, produced a run-scoring double in the third and scored after singling in the sixth. He had an opportunity to complete the cycle in the seventh inning but flied out to right. In his first full season in Arizona, Escobar has been a bright spot on offense throughout the first half, slashing .296/.353/.543 with 18 homers and 67 runs batted in.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Fourth straight start at keystone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar will start at second base and bat third Sunday against the Rockies.

In order to make room in the everyday lineup for both Christian Walker and Jake Lamb, manager Torey Lovullo will deploy the latter at third base for the fourth straight contest. Lamb's move across the diamond has pushed Escobar to the keystone on a more frequent basis while Ketel Marte has shifted to the outfield. While Escobar probably isn't an ideal defensive fit at second base, his fantasy managers in both redraft and keeper/dynasty leagues won't complain about added positional versatility that comes with the arrangement.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Back with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar entered Thursday's game in the sixth inning and went 1-for-2 with an RBI in a 5-1 win over the Giants.

Escobar started the day in Florida, where his two sons received their green cards, and was back in San Francisco in time for the game, but manager Torey Lovullo kept him out of the starting lineup. He's batting just .214 (12-for-56) with two extra-base hits over the last 16 games.

June 27, 2019 06:36 PM
Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is not in the lineup Thursday against the Giants.

Escobar will head to the bench for what appears to be routine breather after starting the past 42 games, slashing .277/.326/.555 with 11 home runs and three stolen bases during that stretch. In his stead, Jake Lamb is starting at third base with Christian Walker at first. With Lamb back to full health, Escobar could continue to see more occasional days off as the Diamondbacks look to rotate three players between first and third base.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Launches 18th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, a second run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Dodgers.

He blasted his 18th homer of the year in the first inning off rookie Tony Gonsolin to give the D-backs a 4-0 lead, and they never looked back. Escobar hadn't gone yard since June 10, slashing a woeful .180/.271/.200 through 14 games between the home runs, but despite the slump he remains on pace for career highs in all five main fantasy categories.

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

Escobar went 1-for-3 with a run scored in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Giants.

Escobar's fifth-inning single snapped an 0-for-15 slide. He remains Arizona's RBI leader with 59, but he's been in a quiet stretch over the last two weeks, hitting .150 (6-for-40) with five RBI in the last 11 games.

June 21, 2019 10:52 AM
Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Stuck in offensive rut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar has gone 5-for-30 with one extra-base hit (a double), four RBI and four runs over his last eight games.

After a monstrous four-hit, two-homer performance in Philadelphia on June 10, Escobar has seen his bat go quiet over the final six games of the Diamondbacks' road trip. A return to Chase Field hasn't helped Escobar get back on track, as he went hitless in the first two games of the series. He'll remain in the lineup as the No. 5 hitter for the series finale Thursday but could be in line for a maintenance day at some point this weekend in light of his recent struggles.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Goes yard twice in slugfest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 4-for-5 with a double, two home runs, three runs scored and five RBI in Monday's 13-8 win over the Phillies.

The two teams combined for an MLB-record 13 long balls in total, while Escobar led the charge on a franchise-record eight for Arizona. The 30-year-old remains locked in at the plate, slashing .342/.376/.734 over his last 18 games with seven home runs, 16 runs scored and a whopping 23 RBI.

June 10, 2019 06:48 AM
Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: On base five times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 3-for-3 with a double, two walks and a run scored in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Blue Jays.

Escobar returned to his usual third spot in the batting order after getting a day off Saturday. He's been a consistent source of offense all season and leads Arizona with a .911 OPS.
