(7/15/14) Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar proved in the first half that his breakout 2012 campaign wasn't a fluke, as he turned in a .283/.320/.386 line with two home runs, 29 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 332 at-bats.
Escobar managed to hit just .234/.259/.300 last season while swiping 22 bases in 607 at-bats. He's done a much better job across the board, coming close to his .293/.331/.390 line from 2012. He enjoyed an excellent first half that season as well before cooling off after the break, which he'll try to avoid moving forward.

|Alcides Escobar is day to day with left shin contusion |

(6/22/14) Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar left Sunday's game against the Mariners with a left shin contusion after getting hit by a pitch. X-rays were negative and he is day to day.
|The Royals have been waiting for Alcides Escobar to blossom offensively. In 2012, Escobar started to showcase some of his burgeoning offensive skills, but he sadly went through a pretty bad regression in 2013, leaving doubt about his ability to become an all-around player. After batting .293 with a .331 on-base percentage, .390 slugging percentage and .721 OPS in 2012, Escobar hit just .234 with a .259 on-base percentage, .300 slugging percentage and .559 OPS in 158 games last season. The defense-savvy shortstop did tie a career high with 52 RBI, as well as total at least 20 doubles and 20 stolen bases for a third straight season. Still, there were few offensive highlights for the 27-year-old shortstop. He got off to a pretty promising start, batting .286 with a .439 slugging percentage, .769 OPS, three home runs, six doubles, 12 RBI and six stolen bases in 24 April games, but it was pretty much downhill the rest of the way. He doesn't have a lot of offensive upside, so Escobar is a deep-league option on Draft Day.
