Three runs for Alcides Escobar

SS Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double and three runs in Monday's season opener vs the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact: The Royals' shortstop endured a miserable spring, batting just .180. We all know he can steal bases and if the Royals' lineup lives up to its potential, then Escobar will be able to score plenty of runs.

It has not been an awe-inspiring spring for Alcides Escobar who has scored just 6 runs in 59 At-bats. Friday's 0-for-6 line in the 11-1 victory over the Astros sums up the 2015 Cactus League for Escobar.

Fantasy Impact: Alcides Escobar offers tremendous SB potential from middle-infield. Part of his value is hitting atop the Royals' lineup. His spring .238 OBP suggests he will need to improve otherwise he will find himself hitting in the #9 spot.

Alcides Escobar failed to get on base in the Cactus League defeat to the White Sox. He went 0-for-3 with 2 strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: The ability to contribute in the stolen bases column is Alcides Escobar's biggest asset. He has swiped 114 bags over the past 4 seasons and last year led all shortstops with 31 SB. Ned Yost has confirmed that Escobar will be the team's leadoff hitter so he will have plenty more opportunities ......... if he can get on base.
