Fantasy Tip: Escobar is currently on a seven-game hitting streak and has nine RBI during that span. He should be an attractive starting option in daily fantasy leagues because of his recent success at the plate.

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 09:32:23 -0700

Twins | Trevor Plouffe on the bench

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 08:40:54 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Saturday, June 18. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Nunez has slowed down a bit this month but still has at least one hit in eight of his last nine games. He is a decent starting candidate in most leagues. Escobar is hitting .385 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days and should have value in daily fantasy leagues.

Twins | Byung Ho Park resting vs. Yanks

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 14:20:32 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 17. SS Eduardo Escobar draws into the lineup at the 6 and is batting sixth against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka. SS Eduardo Nunez remains in the leadoff spot and is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar is hitting .252 with no home runs and 10 RBI on the year. In limited playing time he has yet to find a groove at the plate and is not an intriguing daily selection. Nunez has been one of the Twins' most consistent hitters on the year. He's cooled off a bit of late but contributes across the board and remains a fantasy option in the majority of seasonal leagues, especially for his multiposition eligibility.

Twins | Joe Mauer out vs. lefty

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:27:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Thursday, June 16. As a result, SS Eduardo Escobar draws into the lineup at shortstop and is hitting sixth. SS Eduardo Nunez moves to third base and 3B Trevor Plouffe is serving as the designated hitter. Also, 2B Brian Dozier is hitting third in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer is in the midst of a resurgent season thanks mainly to increased plate patience. He's squaring up more balls at the plate and has become an asset in most seasonal leagues with a .285/.386/.417 slash line and seven homers and 26 RBI. Escobar has lost considerable playing time to Nunez this year and has very little fantasy value remaining. Dozier has had a down year but is more of a contrarian play this evening in the three-hole in daily setups.

Twins | Byung Ho Park not in the lineup

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 09:10:53 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Sunday, June 12. 3B Trevor Plouffe will serve as the designated hitter. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while SS Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe and Nunez have posted solid numbers this season and should be starting options in many leagues. Escobar has recorded four hits in his last eight games but is not a great fantasy option for owners.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe not in the lineup

Fantasy Tip: Escobar has recorded at least one hit in six of his last nine games and has three RBI during that span. He may have some value in daily fantasy leagues but is not a strong option in most leagues.

Twins | Eduardo Escobar sitting

Fri, 27 May 2016 16:05:08 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Escobar is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. SS Eduardo Nunez is playing the 6 and is hitting leadoff against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a lack of power, Nunez has done nothing but produce for the Twins this year with a .314/.347/.482 slash line with four home runs, 19 RBI and eight stolen bases as a utility player. As long as he keeps hitting, the Twins will find a spot for him, and it is likely to come at the expense of Escobar. He's great depth in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Against King Felix, he's a contrarian play in daily games hitting leadoff.

Twins | Eduardo Escobar returns to shortstop

Mon, 23 May 2016 13:38:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Escobar (groin) is back from the disabled list and is starting at shortstop and batting seventh against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar's return hurts the fantasy value of Eduardo Nunez, who has been one of Minnesota's more consistent hitters. Nunez should remain more attractive for his speed than Escobar, though, in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Escobar had no home runs and a .237 average before he was injured.
