Twins | Eduardo Escobar moves up the order

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:41:59 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Escobar is batting second against Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is scorching hot with 11 runs, four doubles, four home runs and a 1.281 OPS over his past 10 games. It is a tough matchup Friday, though, so he should be viewed as more of a flier than a lineup lock.

Twins | Brian Dozier sitting vs. Cleveland

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 15:13:37 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. SS Eduardo Escobar is starting at second base and batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Dozier ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He has emerged as the premiere power hitter at the keystone this season with 24 home runs. Escobar ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier at FantasyScore Friday, and you should likely aim higher.

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 10:13:36 -0700
