Eduardo Escobar News
Milwaukee Brewers infielder Eduardo Escobar isn't starting on Tuesday against the St. Louis Cardinals and right-hander Adam Wainwright. Escobar is batting .249 with a .312 on-base percentage, 28 home runs, and a stolen base in 581 plate appearances this season. Dan Vogelbach is getting the start in Escobar's place at first base on Tuesday night. The 28-year-old is hitting seventh against the Cardinals. Fantasy managers are probably better off looking elsewhere for streaming help. Vogelbach is batting .210 with a .344 on-base percentage and eight home runs in 247 plate appearances this season.
Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Eduardo Escobar went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs in Friday's 10-3 win over Cleveland. The infielder went yard off Cleveland starter Eli Morgan in the fifth inning and reliever Sam Hentges in the sixth. Escobar has homered three times in his last two games after failing to go yard for 22 games between August 2nd and September 7th. He's batting .259/.315/.492 with 27 homers, 79 RBI, 69 runs scored, and a stolen base through 518 plate appearances between Milwaukee and Arizona this year. He seems to have found his power stroke with his new team.
Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) is expected to rejoin the lineup sometime this weekend. He has been sidelined roughly a month while dealing with a lingering hamstring issue. The veteran infielder is hitting .788 OPS with two home runs over 21 games with the Brewers. Fantasy managers should be patient with him because he should be back in the lineup soon. Escobar hits well enough to be rostered in most fantasy formats down the stretch.
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.
