Escobar (hamstring) has begun running and should run the bases sometime during the coming weekend, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Escobar has been on the 10-day disabled list since May 14 after straining his hamstring. He had a timetable of 2-to-4 weeks and could return before the end of May.
Escobar was placed on the disabled list with a strained hamstring, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Escobar was diagnosed with a Grade 1 hamstring strain and is expected to miss two-to-four weeks with the injury. While Escobar is out, Luis Valbuena and Cliff Pennington will both likely spend time at third base. Before landing on the disabled list, Escobar had hit 17 RBI and built a .272/.324/.411 line over 38 games.
Escobar (hamstring) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Escobar was pulled from Saturday's game after experiencing tightness in his hamstring, prompting the team to send him in for an MRI a day later. The full extent of Escobar's injury won't be known until the results of the MRI are received, but the Angels aren't expecting the veteran infielder to require a stint on the disabled list, according to Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times. Luis Valbuena will cover third base Sunday while Escobar continues to recover.
Escobar was removed from Saturday's game with a hamstring cramp, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. Escobar is day-to-day and probably will miss a game or two. Escobar, who's hitting .272/.324/.411 in 170 plate appearances so far, probably will be replaced by Jefry Marte or Cliff Pennington for the time being. It's unfortunate timing for Escobar, as he's hitting .354 with three home runs, nine RBI and seven runs in May.
Escobar (undisclosed) was removed from Saturday's game, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. The third baseman led off and went 1-for-3 with a run before his exit. Cliff Pennington replaced him before the top of the sixth inning.
