SS - KC
Alcides Escobar hits his seventh HR of the season
All of the Royals scoring on Thursday came off of Alcides Escobar's seventh HR of the season. It was a two-run shot in the second inning to tie the game. Unfortunately, the Royals gave up another three runs in the sixth for the loss. Escobar finished 1-for-4 with the HR, two RBI, a run and two strikeouts.
Escobar has almost zero fantasy value. He is hitting .266 on the year and has been awful as of late. Even with this HR, he is only hitting .182 over his last seven games.
Alcides Escobar homers in win
Alcides Escobar homered and doubled in a 2-for-4 effort in Thursday's win over the Marlins. He scored twice and drove in a pair of runs.
It was the second consecutive multi-hit game for the SS who's more known for his defense than his bat. He now has three multi-hit games in his last five, including four extra-base hits over that span. Don't expect this type of production to last, but it could be worth riding Escobar while he's hot.

Alcides Escobar went 1-for-3 in the Royals 2-1 victory over the Twins. He is now hitting .259 on the season.
Escobar has moved up and down the lineup this year, but sill can not seem to improve his average. Look for him to stay at the same production level the rest of the year.
Alcides Escobar goes 1-for-4 against Rays
Alcides Escobar went 1-for-4 in the Royals' 3-2 win over the Rays. He is now hitting .256 on the year.
Escobar has shown signs of turning things around at the plate. He will need to put together a hot streak to become a better option for fantasy owners.

Alcides Escobar went 1-for-5 with 1 rbi against the Rangers on Saturday. He is now hitting .259 on the season.
