Royals | Alcides Escobar scratched Monday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:07:00 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (finger) was scratched from the starting lineup Monday, June 29. SS Christian Colon will start at shortstop and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been dealing with the injury for a few days, so owners should look for an update after the game. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has gone 1-for-12 in limited playing time this month and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Royals | Alcides Escobar on a tear

Thu, 14 May 2015 18:25:27 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar went 3-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored in a 6-3 win over the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 14, and he went 8-for-16 in the four-game series.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .318 for the year, and he has six RBIs and has scored six runs over his past six games. He should continue to offer solid production for the price at FantasyScore as long as he is leading off for a Kansas City team ranked in the top three in batting average and runs scored.

Royals | Alcides Escobar returns to leadoff spot

Fri, 08 May 2015 14:37:25 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar is batting leadoff against the Detroit Tigers Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) hasn't played since being beaned in the head Wednesday, April 29, and he may need a game or two to catch back up to game speed. Seasonal owners will want to return Escobar to their lineups immediately, whereas FantasyScore players would be wise to allow Escobar to return and prove himself before utilizing him in contests.

Royals | Alcides Escobar activated

Fri, 08 May 2015 12:23:03 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (concussion) was activated from the seven-day disabled list Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has not played since April 29, so he may be a little rusty in his return to the lineup. Escobar is hitting .291 so far this season and could be an option on FantasyScore if he is healthy.

Thu, 07 May 2015 18:41:09 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (concussion) might make his return from the seven-day concussion disabled list Friday, May 8, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) may be rusty and will face a very difficult matchup with David Price on the mound for Detroit. FantasyScore owners should give Escobar a couple games before reinvesting.

Royals | Alcides Escobar to 7-day disabled list

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:00:58 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (head) is not 100% and was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Friday, May 1, according to manager Ned Yost. Yost noted they will not take any chances with Escobar, and Yost expects Escobar will fail the impact test he underwent.

Fantasy Tip: Christian Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is starting for Escobar ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) Friday, and Colon projects to see the bulk of starts until Escobar returns. Colon is a nice low-priced flier for FantasyScore players, as he handles the bat well. Through 75 career at-bats Colon is a .307 batting average.

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 13:56:21 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (head, cheek) passed his concussion test, but he is not able to move his head up and down sharply, according to manager Ned Yost.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Escobar ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) to return this weekend. Christian Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is starting at shortstop in place of Escobar Thursday, April 30, and he projects to start until Escobar is able to return. Colon is a viable low-priced flier for FantasyScore players.

Royals | Alcides Escobar optimistic for quick return

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 13:51:56 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (head, cheek) hopes to return to the lineup Friday, May 1, or Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Christian Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is starting at shortstop in place of Escobar Thursday, April 30, and he projects to handle the position for the entirety of Escobar's ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) absence. This is excellent news for Escobar's seasonal owners, and Colon isn't a bad option for FantasyScore players looking for cap relief.

Royals | Alcides Escobar to avoid DL?

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 10:13:05 -0700

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (head, cheek), who was diagnosed with a bruised left cheek after being hit in the head by a pitch Wednesday, April 29, isn't expected to land on the disabled list, according to manager Ned Yost. However, it's unknown when he might return to action. Escobar didn't go to the hospital and didn't undergo X-rays.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) seems to have dodged a bullet with his injury, but you shouldn't expect him to be back in the lineup against Detroit Tigers starter Alfredo Simon tonight. Christian Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is the likely replacement at shortstop until Escobar returns. He's a low-end second base option at FantasyScore.
