Eduardo Escobar News
New York Mets third baseman Eduardo Escobar came through in a big way Tuesday night, driving in all five runs in a 5-4 extra-inning victory over the Miami Marlins. Escobar was 3-for-5 at the plate with a two-run home run. The round-tripper was his 20th of the year, and he has now scored 57 runs and driven in 68 in 480 at-bats. Escobar has been on fire in September with a .330/.379/.638 slash line that has surely turned the tide for fantasy managers in playoff matchups.
New York Mets third baseman Eduardo Escobar went deep for the second straight day Saturday, as he went 1-for-2 at the plate with the solo shot and a walk. With Luis Guillorme and Brett Baty sidelined with injuries, Escobar has started every game at third base since he returned from the injured list. Before these last few games, he had not homered since July 26, and he now has 14 on the season to go with a .669 OPS, 43 runs scored, and 48 RBI. Regularly batting in the bottom third of the New York lineup, fantasy managers should look elsewhere for better third base options.
New York Mets third baseman Eduardo Escobar (oblique) has been activated off the IL and will start at third and bat eighth against Kyle Freeland and the Colorado Rockies. Escobar missed just over a week after suffering a left oblique strain. The 33-year-old veteran has struggled this year, but has managed a .250/.286/.500 slash line against lefties, making him an intriguing option in DFS. It is likely that he will form a platoon with rookie Brett Baty, limiting both of their fantasy upsides. Yolmer Sanchez was sent to Triple-A to make room for Escobar.
New York Mets infielder Eduardo Escobar spent time with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Milwaukee Brewers last season, slashing .253/.314/.472 with 28 home runs, 90 RBI, 77 runs scored, and a stolen base over 146 games. He signed a two-year, $20 million contract with the Mets during the offseason. The 33-year-old has multiple eligibility and will qualify at first (18 games), second (42 games), and third base (99 games) in most leagues in 2022. Escobar's home run pop is still there, evidenced by his .455 xSLG, which was 66th in MLB percentile rankings per Baseball Savant. The veteran will be with his third team since the 2021 season and is expected to hit out of six spot in a revamped Mets lineup, which includes new additions Mark Canha and Starling Marte. Cutter/ATC projects Escobar to .243 with 20-plus homers and 70 RBI in 2022. According to Rotoballer's Expected Draft Values, Escobar is roughly fair value at his current 191 ADP. Fantasy managers can expect Escobar to be an instrumental player at the hot corner and keystone as long as his skills don't deteriorate heading into his age-33 season.
