      Twins' Eduardo Escobar in line for regular time at shortstop?

      Twins infielder Eduardo Escobar will likely take over as the team's starting shortstop following the option of Danny Santana to Triple-A Rochester. Escobar has bounced around the diamond for the Twins, playing 24 games in left field but making eight starts at shortstop and also seeing limited time at second base and third base. He's the only Twins player besides Santana to get a start at shortstop, and the team balanced the move by recalling Kennys Vargas. Eduardo Nunez has experience at the position as well, so the team could opt to split playing time between the pair of utility players. The Twins could also end up promoting infielder Doug Bernier, who is already on the 40-man roster.

      Twins INF/OF Eduardo Escobar records RBI double Thursday

      Twins utility man Eduardo Escobar waited until his last at-bat to record his lone hit of Thursday's 8-4 win over the Red Sox. Escobar went 1 for 5 with an RBI double in the top of the ninth inning that gave the Twins some un-needed insurance. Despite the two-bagger on Thursday, Escobar has been scuffling at the plate recently. After Thursday, Escboar has just two hits in his last six games.
