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' Cheslor Cuthbert: Plates three in win over Tribe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert 2-for-3 with a solo home run and three RBI during Sunday's win over Cleveland.

Cuthbert has started sparingly since returning from the disabled list Aug. 8, and even after Sunday's strong outing, he projects to return to a depth role. There aren't many fantasy setups where he's a viable option.

Royals' Jason Hammel: Holds off Indians for sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammel (6-9) allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three batters through six innings during Sunday's win over Cleveland.

Hammel has now allowed three runs or fewer in 13 of his past 15 starts and entered Sunday's outing with a 3.89 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 7.2 K/9 through those previous 14 games. His fantasy ceiling is low, but he's currently providing reliable numbers that move the needle in most fantasy settings. Hammel lines up to face Cleveland at Progressive Field in his next start.

Royals' Cameron Gallagher: Starting behind plate Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is starting at catcher and batting ninth Sunday against Cleveland.

Gallagher slides into the starting lineup, giving Drew Butera a rest, for the fourth time since being called up Aug. 6 when Salvador Perez (oblique) landed on the disabled list. However, the latter is scheduled to return early next week, meaning Sunday could be Gallagher's final MLB appearance for quite a while.

Royals' Drew Butera: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera is not in the starting lineup Sunday at home against Cleveland.

Cam Gallagher will step in behind the plate for Sunday's contest. Butera has started eight of the team's last nine games, playing in place of Salvador Perez (oblique). The latter is slated to return Tuesday or Wednesday, so Butera's run of relevance is coming to an end.
