Kansas City Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar is rarely at the top of hitting leaderboards, but he's jumped to the top in one metric so far this year. By grounding into a double play on Saturday, Escobar took over as the Royal who has grounded into the most double plays so far this season. Escobar's other stats include a .197 batting average (after a two-hit day on Saturday!), a .271 on-base percentage that is actually lower than the pitiful OBP he had last year that was the second-worst in the majors, and one stolen base. Escobar continues to be one of the worst hitters in baseball, and he should not be owned in almost any leagues.
