Yunel Escobar notches an RBI on Monday

The Angels were able to sneak past the Blue Jays on Monday with a 2-1 victory. Yunel Escobar drove in what would be the winning run in the fifth inning. Escobar reached first base on a fielder's choice. He finished 0-for-4 with a RBI and a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar is on a team that is struggling to win games. He has some upside, but only worth owning in deeper leagues. His wOBA is slightly lower than his career averages and Escobar could see some positive regression. However, it will not be significant enough to give him much fantasy value. His upside is in DFS when stacking the Angels. Unfortunately, the Angels are hardly a team worth stacking right now.

Yunel Escobar draws a walk on Monday

The Angels were shut out on Monday and lost 3-0 to the Astros. Yunel Escobar hit leadoff and went 0-for-3 with a walk.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar started out hot, but has cooled off some as of late. He has yet to record a hit over his last three games. The Angels are struggling outside of Mike Trout and Escobar will find it difficult to generate runs when guys are not hitting behind him. He is still worth owning in deeper leagues, but keep him on a short leash.

Yunel Escobar is off to a hot start this season

The Angels were able to battle back against the Mariners to win 10-9 on Sunday. One of the reasons they are 5-2 to start the year is the hot start of Yunel Escobar. Escobar is hitting .414 with a 1.038 OPS. On Sunday, he finished 2-for-5 with a run and two RBI.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar could be a decent addition if you need help at third base. This production is not likely to hold as his BABIP is currently .440. That number should regress and Escobar's value will regress as well. Fantasy Baseball is a grind though and it is best to play guys while they are hot. Throw him in there off the bench and drop him when he cools off.

Yunel Escobar hit leadoff in the Angels' season opener

Yunel Escobar was able to get on base twice. He went 2-for-4 on the day, but no one could drive him home. He also struck out twice as the Angels fell to the Athletics 4-2.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar has some value as long as he continues to hit at the top of the order. With guys like Kole Calhoun and Mike Trout hitting behind him, Escobar should be able to generate runs. He doesn't have power but helps with batting average and runs scored for category leagues. He is a solid stack option in DFS too.

Yunel Escobar picks up hit, run against Royals

Yunel Escobar went 1-for-4 in the leadoff spot, driving in and scoring a run for the Angels in a 7-5 loss to Kansas City on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Escobar continues a stunning run over his last seven games, batting .448 with 13 hits and six runs scored. Maintaining a hitting streak that is now up to seven games, Escobar followed his five-hit outing on Jul. 26 with another strong performance on Wednesday.
