by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins shortstop Eduardo Escobar picked the right moment to hit his first home run of the season, knocking a solo home run in the top of the 10th inning Monday to lead his team to a 1-0 win over the Indians.

Escobar came into the game as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning and remained in to play shortstop. He's done a great job in limited action this season, hitting .333/.370/.500 with one home run, six RBI and one stolen base in 42 at-bats.

Twins plan to rotate between three players at shortstop
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Sunday he doesn't have a primary shortstop, as he continues to rotate between Pedro Florimon and Eduardo Escobar. Danny Santana has also joined the mix after his promotion from the minors Saturday.

"Whoever is out there that day is my shortstop," Gardenhire said, per MLB.com. "I have confidence in anybody I put out there."

Gardenhire said he wants to give Florimon as many opportunities to start because of his defense, but his poor start offensively has kept him from being the everyday shortstop.

"He's been fighting it a little bit [offensively]," Gardenhire said. "You watch him with that glove and the way he makes it easy out there, and that's why you love him so much. But Esco has been swinging good, and Santana is ready to rock and roll. I can promise you that."

Eduardo Escobar collects four hits, two RBI Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Twins infielder Eduardo Escobar delivered his best offensive performance of the season Wednesday, going 4 for 4 with a double and two RBI in his team's 6-4 loss to the Dodgers.

Escobar kicked off the scoring Wednesday with an RBI double in the second inning before the Dodgers answered with six runs to go into the ninth with a 6-1 lead. Escobar drove in another run in the final frame and scored on a two-run double, but the Twins rally fell short as Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen slammed the door. Escobar has hit .345/.355/.414 with five RBI in 29 at-bats.
