Escobar (finger) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Astros.

He was forced to leave Sunday's game after taking a groundball off his right index finger, and was then a late scratch from Monday's starting lineup. However, it seems the discomfort has subsided enough to where Escobar can at least adequately throw and swing a bat. The 28-year-old will man short and lead off against lefty Dallas Keuchel.

Escobar (finger) has been scratched from Monday's lineup, Andy McCullough of the KC Star reports.

Escobar was initially slated to lead off and play shortstop, but he'll remain on the bench after taking a grounder off of his right index finger during Sunday's game. The Royals are yet to announce a new lineup, but an update should come in short order.

Escobar (finger) is still feeling pain when he throws, but is still slated to lead off and play shortstop Monday against the Astros, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

Despite being 50-50 as to whether or not he plays earlier in the day, he's currently set to still leadoff and play shortstop Monday, despite the lingering pain. It will be interesting to see if he gets time off over the course of the next week, but as of now, he will be playing through the injury.

Speaking after Sunday's game, Escobar (finger) said he thinks he'll be able to play in Monday's game against the Astros, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

The initial confidence is a good sign for Escobar's owners, but the shortstop will still have to see if his finger swells overnight. He was removed from Sunday's game against the A's after a ground ball split open a nail on his throwing hand.
