  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Gets Thursday off

    Escobar is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Escobar will get a day off to mentally reset himself while he remains in the midst of a rough stretch at the plate. Through his first nine starts in May, Escobar is getting on base at a .205 clip and has provided just one extra-base hit (a double). Luis Guillorme will fill in for the veteran at third base.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Sitting Game 2

    Escobar is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against Atlanta.

    Escobar went 1-for-4 with an RBI during Game 1 and will take a seat for the nightcap, which is only his second time on the bench this season. J.D. Davis will man the hot corner in his place for Game 2.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Launches first homer

    Escobar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's win over the Giants.

    Escobar took Anthony DeSclafani yard in the second inning to record his first homer as a Met. Despite not hitting any homers prior to Thursday, Escobar had shown plenty of power by recording seven doubles and one triple in his first 12 starts this season. Overall, he's hitting .318/.363/.591 to go along with seven runs scored and five RBI across 56 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Reaches base three times Wednesday

    Escobar went 2-for-3 with a walk and a double in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

    The veteran infielder is thriving in his first season as the Mets' starting third baseman, slashing .317/.462/.537 through 12 games with an 11:10 BB:K. Escobar's still looking for his first homer of the year, but eight of his 13 hits (seven doubles and a triple) have gone for extra bases, so it's only a matter of time before he goes yard.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Gets breather Saturday

    Escobar isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against Washington.

    While starting the first two games of the season, Escobar went 2-for-7 with two doubles, a run, three walks and three strikeouts. Luis Guillorme will start at the hot corner and bat eighth Saturday.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Pops first spring homer

    Escobar went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.

    The veteran infielder took Kyle Finnegan, one of the Nats' potential closing options, deep in the sixth inning. Escobar is coming off a strong 2021 campaign split between Milwaukee and Arizona in which he slugged 28 homers and racked up 90 RBI over 146 games, and the switch hitter is expected to give the Mets a similar jolt of power from the bottom half of their batting order as the team's regular third baseman.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Joining Mets for two years

    Escobar signed a two-year, $20 million deal with the Mets on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The contract includes a team option for a third season, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

    Escobar bounced back from a very poor shortened season in 2020 to hit .253/.314/.472 with 28 homers for the Diamondbacks and Brewers in 2021. That line was good for a 107 wRC+, meaning he's now been an above-average hitter in each of the last three 162-game seasons, averaging 28.7 homers in those campaigns. That doesn't make him a star given the high offensive bar at third base (though he can also be part of the mix at second), but he should still be a very useful player as long as his skills don't deteriorate too much heading into his age-33 season.

  • Brewers' Eduardo Escobar: Out of Game 4 lineup

    Escobar is not in the lineup for Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday against Atlanta.

    His defensive versatility makes Escobar a prime candidate to be the first player to enter the game off the bench for Milwaukee. Luis Urias will start at third base while Rowdy Tellez starts at first base.
