    • Escobar went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs overall in Sunday's 15-5 victory over the Rangers. He found a way to inflict some damage despite hitting out of the nine-hole, launching his third homer of the season in the seventh off reliever Cesar Ramos with Kurt Suzuki aboard. The homer was Escobar's first since June 18 versus the Yankees, and he's now slashing .261/.286/.372 in a part-time role.

    • Escobar (hamstring) lined out as a pinch hitter and then played second base in Thursday's win over Texas. Escobar hadn't played since July 2 due to a sore hamstring. It looks like he'll avoid the DL and return to his backup role. He's lost the starting shortstop job to Eduardo Nunez and will get occassional starts at shortstop when Nunez plays third base.

    • Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Remains out of lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Escobar (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the A's, Brandon Warne of Cold Omaha reports. Wednesday will mark the fourth straight absence for Escobar, who continues to deal with a hamstring strain sustained during Saturday's game. The Twins are hoping he'll avoid a DL stint as the All-Star break approaches, so Escobar should be considered day-to-day until further notice.

    • Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Remains out Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Escobar (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Monday against the Athletics, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. With Escobar still recovering from the hamstring issue and Trevor Plouffe (ribs) landing on the DL, the Twins are starting to get a little thin on the left side of the infield. Fortunately, Escobar's injury is being viewed as a day-to-day concern, so there's optimism that he'll be able to return within a few days. In the meantime, the Twins may have to settle for some sub-optimal defense at third base, as Miguel Sano will man the position Monday afternoon.
