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.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Extends hitting streak to 11 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-3 with three RBI and a run during Sunday's win over the Indians.

The sure-handed shortstop is finally finding his way at the plate as the season's home stretch approaches. Escobar is riding an 11-game hitting streak, going 18-for-42 (.429) with 11 runs since Aug. 9. His .239 average sits at its highest point since April 16, and the 30-year-old's recent efforts make him worthy of consideration in deep formats, at least until he cools off.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Poor season continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar has a .226/.247/.306 slash line with four stolen bases in eight attempts over 438 at-bats.

Escobar slashed a much more respectable .278/.299/.399 across June and July, but has only seven hits in 41 August at-bats. The 30-year-old has little fantasy value at this point with his abysmal on-base percentage and general lack of offensive productivity in 2017.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Scores twice, drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs during Thursday's win over Detroit.

After stealing double-digit bases in seven consecutive seasons, Escobar has just two stolen bases this year. It's been a huge blow to his fantasy value, as the shortstop owns a crippling .234/.257/.320 slash line. His three homers, 32 RBI and 37 runs aren't moving the needle, either.
