Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Earns another start Sunday

Escobar will start at second base and bat sixth Sunday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The return of Jorge Polanco from the bereavement list last Monday was expected to result in reduced playing time for Escobar, but the utility man has staved off a benching thanks to his hot hitting. Escobar will fill in for a resting Brian Dozier at the keystone Sunday, marking his eighth start in nine games after going 15-for-26 (.577 average) with three home runs, eight RBI and five runs over those previous seven contests.
