Royals | Alcides Escobar leading off

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:39:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar is leading off Saturday, July 16, with 2B Whit Merrifield out. 2B Christian Colon is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar is hitting just .250 with 17 RBI and 10 steals in 260 at-bats from the leadoff spot. He has a good matchup against Mike Pelfrey, though, and he's worth a spot at the right price. Colon is hitting just .253 this year and isn't worth consideration.

Royals | Alex Gordon leading off vs. St. Louis

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 13:41:49 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is leading off against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake Thursday, June 30. Royals 2B/OF Whit Merrifield and SS Alcides Escobar are batting second and seventh, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: The KC leadoff spot could be a daily guessing game, but Gordon and Merrifield should maintain starter status in the majority of leagues regardless of where they bat. Escobar, however, is a low-end fantasy option in deep mixed leagues because he isn't the 30-steals commodity he was once was, and hitting atop the lineup is a big boon to his stock. Manager Ned Yost usually settles with a lineup and sticks with it, though, so expect some stability sooner than latter in the one-hole.
