Royals' Alcides Escobar: Logs first hits of season Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-3 with a triple, a double and a run scored in Monday's loss to Detroit.

Heading into Monday's game, Escobar had failed to record a hit in Kansas City's first two games. While he did have an impressive outing, his fantasy value is low after 2017's disappointing season. Escobar offers little in terms of power and stole just four bases last season after swiping at least 17 bags in each of the previous six campaigns.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Opening Day shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar, who signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Royals on Friday, will open the year as the team's starting shortstop, 610 Sports Radio reports.

This was a very odd transaction for a rebuilding club, and the decision to block the team's best young position player in Raul Mondesi is even more perplexing. Escobar is an excellent defensive shortstop, but his 62 wRC+ was tied for second worst among qualified position players in 2017. He didn't even help fantasy owners on the bases last season, stealing just four bags after reaching double digits in that category in each of the previous seven seasons. Mondesi will reportedly compete at second base in spring training, but unless the Royals trade Whit Merrifield or move him to third base, it seems likely that Mondesi will return to Triple-A at the start of his age-22 season. Assuming Escobar is as bad as he was the past two seasons, Mondesi could still displace him at shortstop fairly quickly.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Back with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar has a agreed to return to the Royals on an unspecified deal, Robert Murray of FanRagSports.com reports.

Escobar has been worth 0.5 fWAR in each of the past two seasons, providing excellent defense while being one of the worst hitters in baseball. It sounds like this is a guaranteed big-league deal, but look for Escobar to be used as a bench infielder, with Raul Mondesi ready to take over as the everyday shortstop in 2018.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Collects two hits, RBI in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Wednesday's loss to the White Sox.

The 10th-year shortstop remains on pace to play in all 162 games this season, which would give him three such campaigns in four years. For the most part, volume is what keeps Escobar on the fantasy radar in mixed leagues, but his recent play is worth noting. Through 42 at-bats this month, he's hitting a ridiculous .428 with eight extra-base hits (six doubles, one triple and a homer), six RBI, nine runs and just two strikeouts. That said, regardless of format, owners scouring for shortstop help down the stretch should scoop up Escobar if he's still available.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Falls homer short of cycle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 4-for-5 with a double, a triple, an RBI and two runs against the Tigers on Wednesday.

He fell just a homer short of the cycle while building up his ongoing hot streak -- over the last eight games, Escobar's gone 11-for-25 (.440) with four extra-base knocks. In fact, he's been running relatively hot for nearly a month, but that hasn't been enough to bring his season stats up to the point of respectability, as Escobar is still largely scuffling through one of his worst MLB campaigns.
