Eduardo Escobar broke out in 2017 with 21 homers and 73 RBI in 129 games, easily both career highs. Despite the 21 homers, Escobar had little to no buzz entering this draft season, as his playing time looked like a big issue with no set position, at least to start the season. Only with the March 18 announcement that Jorge Polanco would be suspended for 80 games and Escobar could play shortstop every day did his draft stock begin to rise a little bit. With 3B eligibility already established, he moved up a lot of drafts sheets with the thought that he would soon have shortstop eligibility, which would make him an interesting piece as someone who could cover both corner and middle infield for teams. His ADP in 25 Main Event drafts after the Polanco suspension was announced was still only 404.44, and he has absolutely crushed his draft price.
