Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Likely ticketed for utility role despite strong spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar started a shortstop and went 2-for-3 in Wednesday's loss to Houston. He's hitting .306 (11-for-36) this spring.

Despite his strong showing at the plate this spring, he looks set to begin the season in a utility role as there's been little talk that he'll overtake Jorge Polanco for the starting role. However, Escobar could move into the starting lineup at shortstop if Polanco falters or if Miguel Sano becomes the DH if he struggles with the glove at third base.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Agrees to deal to avoid arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million contract with the Twins on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

He was believed to be a non-tender candidate, but ultimately Escobar and the Twins were able to land on a number that was suitable for both sides. Escobar hit just .236/.280/.338 in his age-27 season, but he was significantly better at the plate in 2015 and can play shortstop, second base and third.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Homers Tuesday in Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a walk, solo homer and scored twice in Tuesday's game against the Royals.

Escobar's fourth-inning blast was his sixth of the season, and his first in the team's last 51 games. Tuesday also marked the switch-hitting infielder's first RBI and run since Sept. 15, as Escobar has had a brutal final month of the 2016 campaign. Entering the contest, he was hitting a pathetic .089/.150/.089 through 56 September at-bats, light years beyond his worst numbers for any month this year.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Jorge Polanco will start at shortstop while Escobar gets the night off. Having gone 5-for-18 (.278) with two doubles over the last seven games, Escobar has remained consistent with his season line of .266/.298/.385.
