Twins LF Eduardo Escobar slams big blast in Saturday victory
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Left fielder Eduardo Escobar managed one of seven hits for the Twins on Saturday in Milwaukee, but it not only jump-started his team, it proved to be the difference in the game.

Escobar smashed a three-run homer in the fourth inning that turned a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead in a three-run win. It was his fourth home run of the season and gave him 26 RBI this season.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar in line for regular time at shortstop?
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.

Twins Eduardo Escobar goes yard in Game 1 of DH Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Twins utility man Eduardo Escobar went deep on Wednesday for his third home run of the season. Escobar took Alexi Ogando out of the park for a two-run shot in the ninth inning, but it wasn't enough as the Red Sox took Game 1 of the doubleheader by a score of 6-3.

Escobar, who started at third base but moved to left field, homered for the first time since May 6. It was his only hit of the game, and he now has just six hits in 32 at-bats over his last 10 games.
