Alcides Escobar left the yard for his first homer of the spring Wednesday in the Royals' Cactus League loss to the Cubs.
Escobar pummeled a solo homer to left-center field off Eddie Butler in his first at-bat of the afternoon. He lined out and flied out in his other two plate appearances. Escobar is 3-for-9 this spring with two RBI. The 30-year-old set career-highs in RBI (55) and home runs (seven) last season but did it while hitting an underwhelming .261. Aside from stolen bases (17 last season), he's not much of a fantasy asset. Mar 1 - 7:04 PM
