Royals exercised their $6.5 million option on SS Alcides Escobar.
Escobar batted .261/.292/.350 with 17 stolen bases in 162 games this season for Kansas City. His fantasy stock will continue to tumble as he ages and loses his wheels, but the 29-year-old shortstop remains an important part of the Royals' major league roster for now. Nov 3 - 2:20 PM
