Twins | Eduardo Escobar not getting aboard

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 18:06:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Escobar has reached base just 10 times in 51 plate appearances so far this season.

Fantasy Tip: Minnesota hitters have struggled at the plate, and are striking out way too much and not taking enough walks. While Escobar ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) has hit safely in back-to-back games for just the third time this season, but he hasn't hit in three in a row yet. Avoid him for Thursday's game, especially against an arm like Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting infield option that should be considered a weak play at FantasyScore Tuesday night.

Twins | Torii Hunter on bench Friday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:51:03 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) benefits from hitting at the top of the Minnesota lineup, but we don't recommend using him at FantasyScore tonight while going up against the reigning AL Cy Young winner in Kluber.

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 10:39:10 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Hector Noesi Friday, April 10. SS Eduardo Escobar is starting in his place at shortstop and hitting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is offensively challenged, but he has a decent matchup and can save you a bunch of loot at FantasyScore. Just don't expect much from him at the plate.
