Escobar went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Rangers

EDGE Analysis

Escobar broke the ice with a leadoff homer in the bottom of the first -- one of Angels long balls surrendered by Colby Lewis. The home run was his fourth of the season but first since April 27, ending a streak of 92 games without one. Although he hasn't provided much in the power department, Escobar has still been one of the better-hitting shortstops in fantasy with his .321/.374/.407 slash line.

Escobar (wrist) remains out of the lineup Monday against the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Escobar started the first two games of the Seattle series, but exited early Saturday after he was struck in the wrist with a pitch. The ailment kept him out of Sunday's series finale, and he'll sit for Monday's opener as well, giving way to Jefry Marte at the hot corner. Escobar should be considered day-to-day until the team updates his status.

Escobar (wrist) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Escobar returned from a concussion at the beginning of the series with the Mariners, but lasted just two games before succumbing to a new injury. He was hit by pitch in the left wrist Saturday and is being labeled as day-to-day for now, but the Angels could send him in for more X-rays if the injury lingers longer than expected. Kaleb Cowart is covering third base for Escobar on Sunday afternoon.
