I don't much care for a middle infielder on the Royals who bats in the bottom third of the order, but you can't ignore a .300 average and seven SBs. If you're unhappy with an Aybar/Peralta/Alexei-type as your starter, I think you could do far worse if you want to pull the trigger on Escobar.
Key stat: Unfortunately, he hasn't swiped a bag since Cinco de Mayo. That means he's due, right?
