Eduardo Escobar News
New York Mets third baseman Eduardo Escobar is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Washington Nationals. Escobar could use a day of rest, as he has just one extra-base hit and is batting .205 in his first nine games in the month of May to drop his season slash line to .216/.326/.342 with one home run and seven RBI in 30 games played. Fantasy managers may want to keep the 33-year-old on their benches until he shows some signs of life at the plate. Luis Guillorme will get the start at the hot corner and will hit eighth on Thursday against Nationals right-hander Joan Adon. Guillorme has only three career home runs in 197 games played in five major league seasons, so DFS gamers should be able to find better options at third base.
New York Mets third baseman Eduardo Escobar went 1-for-4 against the Atlanta Braves in the 5-4 victory on Tuesday. His hit was an RBI single in the first inning. Escobar currently doesn't have an extra-base hit in his past five games, and his only home run of the season came on April 21. The 33-year-old is slashing .250/.359/.398 with 12 runs and six RBI across 24 games. Escobar should be able to find the power stroke that lead to 28 HRs in 2021, so fantasy managers looking for home runs should hang on to him and expect another season with 20-plus round-trippers.
New York Mets third baseman Eduardo Escobar slugged his first home run of the season during a 6-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday. The 2021 All-Star took Giants starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani deep for a solo shot during the second inning. Through 13 games, the 33-year-old is slashing .318/.464/.591 while posting 12 walks and seven doubles. The sturdy Escobar has settled in as the number five hitter in Queens and should be a strong source of counting stats during his first season as a Met.
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.
