According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Royals hope Alcides Escobar (knee) can return Monday or Tuesday.

Advice: Escobar has been on the shelf since suffering a strained knee on a Brett Lawrie takeout slide Friday night in Kansas City. That incident set off a weekend full of drama between the A's and Royals. Christian Colon has been filling in at shortstop for the defending American League champs, who are off to an impressive 9-3 start. They open a three-game set against the Twins on Monday night.

Alcides Escobar (knee) remained out of the Royals' lineup Sunday.

Advice: The Royals are hoping to avoid placing Escobar on the disabled list after he suffered a mild left knee strain on Friday, but it's possible he'll need a few more days. Christian Colon is again filling in at shortstop. Salvador Perez is also out of the lineup Sunday, as he's receiving his first day of rest this season. Erik Kratz is behind the dish.
