Alcides Escobar re-signs with the Royals

The Royals have re-signed Alcides Escobar to a one-year, $2.5 million deal.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar had a pretty typical season in 2017 other than in his stolen base production, which dropped to a mere four after six straight seasons with at least 17. Absent double-digits in stolen bases, Escobar, who has never hit more than seven home runs in a season, simply has next to zero fantasy value, except in deep AL-only leagues.

Alcides Escobar has monster night Wednesday

Alcides Escobar went 4-5 Wednesday, including a double and a triple. The Royals demolished the Tigers 13-2.

Fantasy Impact

While this was an amazing game for Escobar, he still is not fantasy relevant. He is hitting .243 with 61 runs scored and 43 RBIs.

Alcides Escobar scores three times Sunday

Alcides Escobar was 1-for-3 with two walks and three runs Sunday against the Chi-Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar really doesn't have any fantasy relevance anymore unless you're desperate in NL-only leagues. Escobar is posting his lowest BB/9 ever at 1.9% and his highest K% ever at 18.1%.

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.
