Escobar's consecutive streak as Royals' SS to end

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Alcides Escobar's streak of making 406 consecutive starts as the Kansas City Royals shortstop is about to end.

Manager Ned Yost said he plans to play Adalberto Mondesi, 22, a couple of days a week at shortstop. Escobar, 31, has been the Royals everyday shortstop since 2011 after being acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers as part of the Zack Greinke trade.

"Esky's been our shortstop for a long time," Yost said Tuesday. "It's a pretty big change, seeing someboy different at short, but it's exciting, too because now you're starting to give other younger players opportunities to see what they can do."
