Alcides Escobar SBs Explained

Milwaukee Brewers' Alcides Escobar has no stolen bases this season, disappointing fantasy owners - ESPN:

"Almost 90 percent of his plate appearances this season have come in the 8-hole, and batting eighth basically means the brakes are on, according to Brewers manager Ken Macha.

'He hits in front of the pitcher right now,' said Macha. 'So if he's on first with nobody out or one out, the pitcher is bunting. If he's on with two outs, I don't want him running and making the last out, leaving us with the pitcher leading off.'"
