Angels | Yunel Escobar continues to rake

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:30:57 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBIs Wednesday, July 20, against the Texas rangers to push his average to .317.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar continues to do a good job setting the table at the top of Mike Scioscia's lineup, posting his seventh multi-hit game in 15 games in the month of July. He remains a must-start fantasy option in all AL-only leagues, most mixed formats and DFS play.

Angels | Yunel Escobar extends hit streak to 12

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 13:52:45 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar went 3-for-5 Thursday, July 7, against the Tampa Bay Rays to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. He finished the contest with one run scored and one RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar has been incredibly hot during his streak, going 23-for-55 (.418) over that span. Owners should also keep in mind that with the Angels far out of contention, Escobar could become a popular trade candidate, especially if he continues to rake like he has been. His fantasy stock, however, would be higher if he remains in Anaheim.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar (knee) is leading off Saturday, July 2, in his return to the lineup.

Angels | Yunel Escobar to return Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 13:03:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels 3B Yunel Escobar (knee) is set to start Saturday, July 02, after missing the last seven games due to bone bruise in his left knee.

Fantasy Tip: Jefry Marte will head back to the bench while Escobar will return to a .310 average, three home runs and 20 RBI in 274 at-bats. While the average is nice, the 33-year-old Cuban doesn't do enough in any other category to merit a roster spot outside of deep mixed or AL-only leagues.

Angels | Yunel Escobar still out

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 14:06:27 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar (knee) went through a full workout Friday, July 1, but remains out of the starting lineup. Manager Mike Scioscia thinks Escobar could return any day now, but there is a possibility he could land on the disabled list if he's not back soon.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar has been a nice table-setter for the Angels with a high average this year, but he has little power and doesn't run often, so he doesn't do much for fantasy owners outside of deeper leagues. Make plans to potentially be without him much longer if a DL trip is needed.

Angels | Yunel Escobar out of the lineup

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 11:01:59 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar (knee) is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 29, with 3B Jefry Marte hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Marte is in a 4-for-26 (.154) skid and only has one hit in 14 at-bats (.071) against lefties this year. He's not a great flyer against Dallas Keuchel.
