Latest Update Alcides Escobar cross the plate twice in WS win Fri Oct, 24, 11:37 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 provided most of the offense Friday night as the Royals scored all three of their runs against Giants starter Tim Hudson. Escobar is batting .313/.327/.458 in the playoffs with seven runs scored.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Escobar has just 21 career home runs, including three this season, but he took Baltimore starter Chris Tillman deep in the third inning.Analyst: Steve Pimental
It was another nice game for Escobar who now has three multi-hit games in his last four and is now batting .280 on the season. He rebounded well from a down 2013 season, climbing back up in both batting average and stolen bases (31) and has proven to be a solid option at shortstop and a decent late-round bargain. He should be a solid play over the final week.Analyst: Howard Bender
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.Analyst: Colby Conway
