Player Notes
Alcides Escobar (knee) is not in the Royals starting lineup on Saturday.

Advice: Escobar strained his knee Friday when Oakland's Brett Lawrie took him out with a hard slide at second base. Christian Colon will fill in at shortstop. Escobar was off to a good start before the injury, hitting .326 with seven runs and five RBI. Consider him day-to-day.

Alcides Escobar was removed from Friday's game against the Athletics with a mild left knee strain after being taken out by a hard slide at second base by Brett Lawrie.

Advice: The play led to a benches-clearing altercation between the two clubs, as Lawrie slid quite a bit past the base on a ball that the Royals weren't going to be able to turn over for a double play. Luckily, he was able to avoid significant injury and the Royals are listing him as day-to-day.

Alcides Escobar had two hits, two RBI, and a run scored in a win over the Twins on Monday.

Advice: Escobar has hit safely in all seven games this season and is batting .367 (11-for-30) with five RBI and seven runs scored. The 28-year-old has just 21 home runs in 831 major league games, so he's not going to provide much power, but he has averaged 28 stolen bases over the past four seasons and should score plenty of runs at the top of this lineup.
