SS,CF - FA
The Orioles have signed shortstop Alicides Escobar to a minor league contract that includes an invitation to Spring Training.
Escobar, 32, hit .258/.293/.343 with 41 home runs in 11 major leagues seasons. Escobar has very little power as he homered only four times in 531 at-bats last season. He’s has also averaged 155 games per season in eight seasons with the Royals. Even if he wins the shortstop job in Baltimore, his upside is limited and provides little to no fantasy value.
Alcides Escobar went 0-for-2 with a walk and sacrifice bunt in the bottom of the 10th to walk-off against the White Sox on Monday.
The RBI was only Escobar’s 29th on the season as the Royals’ shortstop has had a year to forget. Even with a .318 average in the month of September, Escobar should be left on your waiver wire.
Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 with a single and a double as the Royals lost on Tuesday.
In 15 games during the month of August, Escobar has been playing well with a .320 batting average and at least one hit in the last six games he’s played. For the season, he is now hitting .212 with four home runs and 26 RBI. Escobar is not a fantasy relevant player.
Alcides Escobar went 1-for-4 with a single and an RBI as the Royals lost 6-5 on Wednesday.
After hitting just .203 in July, Escobar has played better so far in August with a .270 batting average, three doubles, a home run, and four RBI in 11 games. Despite his improved play, Escobar is not a fantasy relevant player.
Alcides Escobar went 1-for-4 with a single and an RBI as the Royals lost at home to Cubs.
Escobar had his first RBI since July 13th on Monday and now has 22 for the season. Although he has had a tough season, Escobar has had a solid start to the month of August with two multi-hit games, two doubles, and an RBI in five games. However, he does not have much fantasy value at this time.
