Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Enters spring with starting shortstop job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eduardo Escobar has earned the starting shortstop job for the Minnesota Twins , manager Paul Molitor told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

After his 2014 breakout season, Escobar was surprisingly moved to a utility role in favor of Danny Santana at shortstop last spring. However, he reclaimed the starting job when Santana faltered. Escobar enters spring training this year as the clear favorite for the everyday job.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Avoids arbitration with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eduardo Escobar agreed to a one-year, $2.15 million deal with the Minnesota Twins on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Escobar will see a substantial pay raise this season after earning $532K in 2015. He bounced around four different defensive positions last season but has a good shot at landing the every day shortstop role in spring training.
