Starting streak for Royals' Escobar may end vs. Rangers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The end is near.

No, not for the season, although for the Kansas City Royals, it can't come soon enough. Shortstop Alcides Escobar's string of starting 406 consecutive games at shortstop might be coming to an end.

Escobar may or may not be at shortstop Wednesday night when the Royals close out a three-game series against the Texas Rangers. It will also be the finale of an eight-game homestand with the Royals failing to collect a victory in the first seven.
