Escobar is not in the lineup against the Indians on Thursday, MLBpressbox.com reports. Escobar, along with a few other regulars, will spend the series finale on the bench after securing a playoff spot due to the Angels' loss Wednesday night. Over the course of September, Escobar is slashing .257/.299/.584 with eight home runs and 22 RBI. Ehire Adrianza draws the start at the hot corner in his stead.
Escobar went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI during Sunday's win over the Tigers. Escobar slapped an RBI single in the fifth inning and followed that up with a three-run shot in the sixth. The Twins' third baseman put together a strong performance during the four-game series, going 6-for-18 with seven RBI in the sweep. He now holds a .252 average with 20 homers and 70 RBI on the campaign.
Escobar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Saturday's loss to Toronto. With Miguel Sano (shin) on the disabled list, Escobar has filled in admirably at third base. Escobar entered Saturday's game with six homers, 14 RBI, 11 runs and a .967 OPS through 14 September games, and those numbers only improved after his 19th long fly of the campaign.
Escobar went 1-for-3 with a solo homer Saturday during the Twins' 5-2 loss to the Royals. Escobar hit a laser off Jake Junis to tie the game in the third inning. His blast marked his 18th of the season and fifth in September, during which he's now 12-for-36 with 13 RBI. Still, it's uncertain that he's done enough to justify anything more than part-time duty after Miguel Sano (shin) returns from the disabled list, likely in the coming days.
Escobar went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Sunday's loss to Kansas City. After hitting two homers and driving in six runs Saturday, Escobar was right back at it Sunday. He's penciled into an everyday gig at third base for the duration of Miguel Sano's (shin) absence, and Escobar is capable of providing serviceable fantasy numbers in deeper settings until Sano returns.
