|(9/24/14) Rays shortstop Yunel Escobar has had his season cut give games short. A left knee sprain sustained Tuesday against Boston will prevent him from playing the rest of the way, per the Tampa Tribune.
Escobar, who suffered the sprain when his spike stuck in the dirt trying to avoid a tag and score from second base, will undergo an MRI to ensure there is no further damage. He finishes the year with a .258/.324/.340 stat line, but just 33 runs and 39 RBI in 476 at-bats.

Yunel Escobar out sick on Sunday
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/7/14) Rays shortstop Yunel Escobar is dealing with an illness, according to the Tampa Bay Times. He was left out of Sunday's lineup against the Orioles, as Ben Zobrist took over at shortstop.
|Yunel Escobar may never reach the heights of his days playing for the Braves, but he puts up enough, stats-wise, to merit AL-only consideration. Escobar hit .256 with nine home runs, four steals and 27 doubles in 2013, his first year with the Rays. He'll stay in the lineup because he's a solid defender, so drafters can expect 500-plus at-bats, but his batting average takes wild swings from season to season, he's not a slam dunk for double-digit home runs, and 25 doubles represent his ceiling. As a middle infield gambit in Roto formats, Escobar won't hurt a team, and his at-bats could help a bit with runs and RBI. But Points owners can leave him undrafted, and pounce on him in free agency if it looks like he's heading for one of his intermittent .290 seasons.
