Latest Update Escobar triples, drives in two in win Fri Aug, 01, 06:38 AM
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 is now 6-for-18 (.333 BA) with a triple, three RBI and three runs scored over his last six games as he continues to be a solid shortstop option in all fantasy formats. He is slashing .277/.312/.379 with 32 RBI, 46 runs scored and 23 stolen bases through 375 at-bats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Escobar has been a bright spot in the Royals offense of late, so it should be no surprise that he is returning to the leadoff spot. He is now hitting .533 with three doubles and four RBI over his last five games. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Escobar was the Royals standout player on offense on Monday night, logging his third multi-hit game over a four game stretch. He is now sitting on a .295 average with two home runs, 28 RBI, 38 runs and 20 stolen bases as he continues to be one of the better producers from the shortstop position in 2014.

Not the end of the world and at least it's not serious. Escobar is batting .288 with 18 stolen bases thus far, so we don't need/want to see any serious damage to the legs. This all sounds pretty minor so hopefully it'll all pass in a day or two. Analyst: Howard Bender
