Alcides Escobar will hit leadoff Monday against the Rays.
The Royals are struggling to put runs on the board, so Royals manager Ned Yost is shaking things up. Of course, putting Escobar at the top of the lineup might not be the best way to do that. Escobar owns a .295 career on-base percentage and owns a lowly .183/.220/.250 batting line through 30 games this season. Mon, May 8, 2017 03:25:00 PM
