Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored and a stolen base in the Royals victory against the Red Sox on Wednesday. 

Escobar raised his season average to .277 and was caught stealing for the fifth time in tonight's game. Escobar has 31 steals on the year and proved himself as a solid fantasy shortstop option.

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in the Royals victory against the White Sox on Wednesday. 

Cain's average is creeping closer and closer to .300 on the year and brought his total season RBI total to 50. He has been a solid source of steals on the year as he has swiped 25 for the Royals. Continue starting Cain in your league, just understand that he isn't the definition of a power hitter.

Yordano Ventura improved to 13-10 after allowing one run on three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a win against the White Sox on Wednesday. 

The fireballer was dominant tonight and out pitched Chris Sale tonight. The young right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.19 and has been a solid pitcher for the Royals all year. Keep starting Ventura and he should be a prime target in the middle rounds next year.

Eric Hosmer is not in the Royals starting lineup on Wednesday.

Eric Hosmer gets the day off with the Royals facing White Sox southpaw Chris Sale. Billy Butler will start at first while Josh Willingham is the designated hitter.

Alex Gordon went 1-for-4 with two RBI, a run scored, walk and a stolen base in the Royals loss to the White Sox on Tuesday. 

Gordon continues to make his case for AL-MVP honors. Unfortunately, he's in the same league as Mike Trout who's a shoe-in for the award. He's having another excellent season at the plate -- .270/.352/.442 with 19 home runs and 12 stolen bases. He's about as consistent a fantasy performer as one could ask for.

Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, a walk and a stolen base in the Royals loss to the White Sox on Tuesday.

Oddly enough, a Walk (23) is rarer than a stolen base (31) in the strange world of Alcides Escobar. His fantasy value is tied to his BABIP, which is alarming to say the least.

Norichika Aoki went 4-for-5 with a RBI, run scored and a stolen base in the Royals loss to the White Sox on Tuesday. 

Deja vu! Aoki had four hits in Monday night's game as well. He's hotter than hot right and could be worth a look for owners looking to make a last second push to the finish line.

Liam Hendriks allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk with three strikeouts over three innings in a no decision against the White Sox on Tuesday. 

Hendriks is filling in for Danny Duffy, who's been out since Sept. 6th with a sore shoulder. He' not an appealing option for fantasy owners.

Billy Butler is not in the Royals' starting starting lineup Tuesday.

The Royals rarely play Butler and for good reason as he pretty much stopped hitting this season. Should only be owned in deep fantasy formats.
