Latest Update Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 and stole his 28th base of the season in the Royals 2-0 win against the Yankees on Sunday. Sun Sep, 07, 06:02 PM
Has outstanding speed and quickness, which he uses prodigiously both on the bases and afield. Is blessed with excellent athleticism and a lanky frame that he uses to his advantage.
Flaws: : Would benefit greatly from adding more bulk to his frame, as well as more patience at the dish, in order to become more of a factor when at the plate. Lacks some power.
Escobar continues to be an efficient play at the shortstop position for the Royals and fantasy owners alike. While he doesn't contribute much in the home run department, he contributes enough in other places to be worthy of a starting spot at a rather thin position.Analyst: Colby Conway
After going 0-for-8 over his previous three games, Escobar got himself back on track Friday night logging his fourth triple of the season and just his third game of three RBI or more. He is now sitting on a .277 average with 26 doubles, 40 RBI, 54 runs scored and 24 stolen bases through 422 at-bats, as he remains a low-end option at shortstop in most fantasy formats.

Escobar has now hit safely in eight of his last nine games as he continues to be a solid contributor from the bottom of the Royals lineup. He is now slashing .280/.316/.373 with two home runs, 36 RBI, 53 runs scored and 24 steals over 410 at-bats, making him a worthy fantasy option in both AL-only and deep league formats moving forward.
