Eduardo Escobar News
Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Eduardo Escobar went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in a 7-6 loss to the Rockies on Saturday. It was Escobar's 12th home run of the season, as he improved his triple-slash line to .235/.277/.480 over 46 games this year. Despite the low numbers early on, Escobar has been on fire over his last seven games by going 10-for-29 with three home runs, eight RBI and four runs scored. He is one of the big power bats in fantasy this year, and is well worth rostering even with the lower average.
Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Eduardo Escobar launched his 11th home run of the season on Thursday, as he finished 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in a 3-2 loss to the Dodgers. While Escobar has been flashing the power this season, he's gone ice cold at the plate this month as he's slashing .183/.205/.366 over 19 games in May. Hopefully the multi-hit performance can help jumpstart his bat, and show him better results in Friday's matchup with the Dodgers.
Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Eduardo Escobar had a monster day at the plate on Saturday, going 3-for-5 with two home runs, seven RBI and three runs scored in an 11-4 win over the Nationals. It was a big day for Escobar, who had gone ice cold in the month of May by slashing .087/.125/.109 with 15 strikeouts in 13 games. While not ideal, his Statcast metrics do suggest some room for improvement as Escobar sports a .237 xBA and .470 xSLG this season. Managers will hope that Saturday's game can be the jumpstart he needs to become a solid fantasy player once again.
After enjoying a career season in 2019, Eduardo Escobar was a significant disappointment in 2020, as he hit just four homers in 54 games and his BA dropped nearly 60 points. The ISO was nearly cut in half, from .242 to .123. His HR/FB% tumbled from a career-high 15.2 to 6.1.The career-low .244 BABIP was obviously unfortunate. Escobar's xBA of .263 points to a rebound in that regard. Yet Escobar's WOBA of .253 was in the Bottom 4 percent of the league, and the xWOBA fell to .294. His Launch Angle of 18.1 and Exit Velocity of 88.6 pretty much stayed in tune with his norms. His Hard Hit Rate of 31.7 was not an outlier from the previous season, either. The trends certainly seem to point to outstanding luck in 2019 and just the opposite in 2020. We should be expecting Escobar to deliver a statistical compromise from the last two seasons of extremes. It is reasonable to foresee an adequate BA and a return to better, but not superb HR numbers. The fantasy community has been very reactive to the stinker of a 2020 season, as Escobar has an ADP of 301. That may be a bit low of a range, as he can return to some levels of respectability. The Diamondbacks will maintain confidence in Escobar by keeping him in the middle of their lineup.
