Royals' Alcides Escobar: Starting streak comes to end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox, Maria Torres of The Kansas City Star reports.

The day off ends a streak of 421 consecutive starts for Escobar, who will likely be rested more liberally in the second half as the rebuilding Royals make room in the lineup for younger players. Kansas City seems likely to deploy the duo of Whit Merrifield and Adalberto Mondesi in the middle infield on most occasions, which has forced Escobar -- a career-long shortstop -- to jockey for playing time at the hot corner and in center field.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Continues to play every day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Sunday's 1-0 loss to the Mariners.

The recent promotion of infield prospect Adalberto Mondesi has yet to result in Escobar's removal from a full-time role, as the 31-year-old has started all 83 of the Royals' games. In order to retain his everyday gig, however, Escobar has had to occasionally move off shortstop, the position he had manned exclusively since joining the Royals in 2011. Escobar has made three appearances in center field and one at third base, but any added positional eligibility he might gain in fantasy leagues would do little to enhance his value. After another hitless showing Sunday, Escobar is slashing just .193/.245/.272 with three home runs, three steals and 18 RBI across 316 plate appearances on the season.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Hits third home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Thursday against the Athletics.

Escobar took Paul Blackburn deep in the third inning to record his third home run of the season. He continues to get regular at-bats in the Royals' lineup, but has little offensive prowess, which limits his viability to the deepest of leagues.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Jumps to second in order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is hitting second and starting at shortstop Wednesday against the Angels, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Jon Jay, who was the Royals' primary leadoff hitter, was traded to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, prompting manager Ned Yost to move Escobar to second in the order while pushing Whit Merrifield to the leadoff role. Escobar could see a slight uptick in runs if he sticks near the top of the order.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Hits walkoff home run Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-6 with a home run in Tuesday's extra-innings win over the Twins.

Escobar's home run -- his second of the year -- came in the bottom of the 14th inning off reliever Taylor Rogers, marking the first walkoff homer of his career. Escobar is slashing .231/.285/.318 on the year with 12 extra-base hits, 14 RBI and 25 runs scored. The 31-year-old isn't proving to be the stolen-base threat he once was.
