Royals' Alcides Escobar: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar has started four of the last five games, slashing just .188/.235/.375 over that stretch. He'll give way to Hunter Dozier at the hot corner for Monday's series opener.

Royals' Brett Phillips: Strikes out twice in lineup return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips (shoulder) went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts Sunday in the Royals' 9-6 loss to the Twins.

Phillips entered the starting lineup for the first time since Sept. 4 after the shoulder injury limited him to one appearance off the bench in the Royals' 10 games in between. Now that he's seemingly back to full strength, Phillips should occupy an everyday role in center field for the Royals over the final two weeks, which could result in the likes of Brian Goodwin, Rosell Herrera and Alcides Escobar losing out on playing time.

In just 231 plate appearances, Mondesi now has 25 steals and nine homers along with a .291 average. He now has six multi-hit games this month with three long balls and 10 runs scored.

Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Scratched due to coach's decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Viloria (coach's decision) was removed from Sunday's lineup against the Twins because he was late arriving to the ballpark, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Viloria overslept and was late getting to the field, so manager Ned Yost benched Viloria for the day. Playing time figures to be hard to come by down the stretch of the regular season for the 21-year-old backstop, with Salvador Perez and Cameron Gallagher both ahead of Viloria on the depth chart.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio sits out after receiving 10 straight starts. He hit a solid .270/.341/.432 over that stretch. Rosell Herrera will start in right field in his absence.
