Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Friday's win versus the Braves.
With hits in 12 of his last 15 games, one would assume that Escobar's slash line would look much better than .255/.291/.302, but few of those games have been multi-hit affairs and he continues to hit for no power. He was productive on Friday, though, leading off with an opposite-field single and later coming around to score. And as long as manager Ned Yost continues to place him in the lead-off role, he'll retain some fantasy utility. That's a fine line to be walking, though. May 13 - 11:50 PM
