Alcides Escobar had two hit and two RBIs in the Royals' 6-2 win over Twins

Alcides Escobar finished 2-for-4 with a double, two RBIs and scored a run as the Royals continue their hot streak in beating the Twins 6-2 on Sunday. The Royals have now won 15 of 21 games to move a game above .500.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar had a great series against the Twins. He went 7-for-16 with four extra-base hits, including a home run, with seven RBIs and scored four runs in the series. He has raised his batting average 50 points since June 13 from .180 to .230. Escobar maybe someone to start in daily leagues while he is on his hot streak. Although I would not believe that this will last, so I keep him out of my lineups in seasonal leagues.

Alcides Escobar gets two hits in the Royals' 6-5 loss to Tigers Wednesday

Alcides Escobar finished 2-for-5 with an RBI as the Royals fell to the Tigers 6-5 on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

The Royals continue to bat Escobar in the leadoff position even though he has a horrendous stat line of .186/.212/.236 with zero stolen bases. It is best to stay away from Escobar in fantasy, as there are a ton of better options.

Alcides Escobar goes 1-for-4 in helping the Royals beat the Orioles 9-8

Alcides Escobar continues to hit leadoff for the Royals and went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a RBI in the Royals 9-8 win over the Orioles on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

While Alcides Escobar is only hitting .226 (7-for-31) and 4 RBI since being placed in the leadoff role, the Royals has won six of seven since moving him into that role. He has not gained any fantasy value since the move, and don't see any positive movement in the future.

Alcides Escobar hits leadoff, records two hits in the 7-3 win over Rays

In trying to jump start their offense and Alcides Escobar, the Royals moved to Escobar to the leadoff spot even though he was hitting below the Mendoza line. He responded by going 2-for-5 with a run scored.

Fantasy Impact

This is only his fifth multi-hit game of the season. I don't see Escobar holding this spot for very long, he is having a horrendous season so far. Please keep him out of your fantasy lineups.

Alcides Escobar goes 1-for-4 as the Royals lose their ninth straight

Alcides Escobar finished 1-for-4 with a RBI as the Royals lost 7-5 to the Chicago White Sox o Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar has been dismal this season. He has only two hits out of his last 12 at-bats. He is only hitting .167 this season. He should not be on any fantasy rosters.
