Yunel Escobar doubles in Sunday's outing against the Royals.

Yunel Escobar went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's loss to Kansas City

Fantasy Impact

Escobar managed to hit for average in June, but not for much else. He only has two RBIs on the month and is sporting a .393 SLG. Escobar is a considerable add in deep and AL-only leagues, but there's likely better options out there.

Yunel Escobar activated from DL

Yunel Escobar was activated from the disabled list on Thursday. He's been sidelined due to a strained hamstring.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar was holding his own prior to the injury, hitting .272 with five homers. He should return to the top of the lineup, especially with Cameron Maybin's injury, so he could be worth monitoring in deep leagues.

Yunel Escobar set to return soon

Yunel Escobar (hamstring) ran the bases for the third consecutive day on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar, who suffered a left hamstring sprain, has been hitting and taking ground balls for the past week. The original diagnosis pegged Escobar to miss 2-4 weeks, and it appears that he will be able to return within that time-frame.

Yunel Escobar to miss 2-to-4 weeks with a strained hamstring

The Angels placed Yunel Escobar on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday with a strained left hamstring. Escobar is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar hurt himself running the bases in the sixth inning of Saturday's game, but the injury wasn't immediately apparent. Escobar has just a Grade 1 strain, so it's likely that he should be able to return within the projected timeframe. On the season, Escobar is slashing .272/.324/.411.

Yunel Escobar goes deep twice in Angels' loss

Yunel Escobar was the lone bright spot for the Angels on Sunday with two solo home runs off Astros' starter Mike Fiers in the Angels' 5-3 loss. Escobar finished 2-for-4 with two runs and two RBIs.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar's two home run day doubled his season total up to four long balls through his first 32 games. Escobar only hit five home runs in 132 games last season and hasn't reached double-digit homers since the 2011 season with the Blue Jays. Don't expect a sudden power spike for the 34-year-old third basemen as his peripheral stats fall in line with his career numbers. Escobar is only a viable fantasy option in deep mixed leagues and AL-only leagues.
