Royals | Alcides Escobar back in lineup

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:11:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (knee) is back in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) missed the last two games due to a knee strain. He should be good to go for your FantasyScore lineups, and he's got a decent matchup against Gibson. Avoiding him in daily lineups tonight after a return from injury might be the smart play, however.

Royals | Alcides Escobar to return Monday?

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 10:12:07 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (knee) is expected to return Monday, April 20, or Tuesday, April 21. He's dealing with a bone bruise on his left knee after a collision at second base last week.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) last played Friday against the Oakland Athletics. If he returns tonight, he'd be facing Minnesota Twins starter Kyle Gibson, which is an attractive matchup. However, you may want to play it safe at FantasyScore and see how he fares after sitting over the weekend.

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 14:20:40 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (knee) was out for the second straight game Sunday, April 19, due to his left knee sprain.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain willing to hit anywhere

Wed, 04 Feb 2015 15:07:37 -0800

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain could hit third in the lineup for the 2015 season, with SS Alcides Escobar at leadoff and OF Alex Rios in the No. 2 spot. Cain hit .321/.367/.429 in the final two weeks of the season last year in the No. 3 position, and he was .333/.388/.417 in the same spot in the playoffs. "I don't remember ever batting third before that," Cain said. "But whatever helps make us go, I'm for it. Once he changed the lineup, we kind of took off. But whatever works, I'm for it."
