Angels' Yunel Escobar: To work with instructional league next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (oblique) will continue ramping up his baseball activities next week in the instructional league, Jeff Fletcher of the Southern California News Group reports.

Although Escobar will get a more intensive workout in next week, the club has withheld any sort of timetable for the infielder at this point in time. If Escobar is going to return before the end of the regular season, he will have to impress the organization while he's with the instructional league team, especially after suffering a setback for the second time since landing on the DL in early August. In his place, Luis Valbuena continues to earn the bulk of the action at the hot corner.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Participating in baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (oblique) worked out on the field and hit in the batting cage Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Escobar has clearly made notable progress since suffering a rehab setback earlier this month, but according to manager Mike Scioscia, he still remains without a firm timeline for return. Luis Valbuena will continue to hold down third base in his absence.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Suffers another setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (oblique) felt discomfort in his strained oblique for the second time during his rehab assignment and has no timetable for a return, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

What appeared to be a short DL stint has turned into a month-long absence for the veteran third baseman. The Angels are in no rush to activate Escobar with C.J. Cron and Luis Valbuena both playing well in his absence. It is unclear what the club plans to do with the 30-year-old, but it doesn't sound like he is returning anytime soon.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Will resume swinging Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (oblique) is scheduled to resume swinging a bat Monday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Escobar had reached the final phase of the recovery process from the strained right oblique by participating in two rehab games with High-A Inland Empire last week, but he was pulled off the minor-league assignment after experiencing some renewed stiffness. After a few days off to recuperate, Escobar seems to have shown some improvement, but an exact timetable for his return from the 10-day disabled list has yet to be determined. More clarity on that front could arrives if his swinging goes well Monday.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Has setback on rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (oblique) felt stiffness in his side after taking a swing in a minor-league rehab game Wednesday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Escobar was scheduled to appear in rehab games Tuesday and Wednesday and then possibly be activated from the disabled list prior to Friday's game against the Rangers. However, that timeline is now in doubt.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Scheduled for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (oblique) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The Angels face right-handed pitchers Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during their upcoming series against the Athletics, so they are not going to rush Escobar back into the lineup in the immediate future. He's scheduled to appear in rehab games Tuesday and Wednesday and could then be activated from the disabled list prior to Friday's game against the Rangers.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: On pace for return next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (oblique) began working out Monday, will take grounders Tuesday, and should go on a rehab assignment soon, The Orange County Register reports.

Escobar's rehab assignment hasn't been scheduled yet, but manager Mike Scioscia said he could still return by next Tuesday's game against the Athletics. He's been out since Aug. 6 with the injury, which was expected to keep him out for 2-to-3 weeks. Escobar's rehab is running slightly behind that timeline, but not by much. Expect him back by the end of the month at the latest.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Headed to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a Grade 1 oblique strain.

It was originally thought that Escobar's injury wouldn't force him onto the DL; however, Monday's MRI confirmed otherwise. The 34-year-old is expected to be sidelined around two-to-three weeks, putting his return date somewhere near the end of August. In the meantime, Luis Valbuena will continue to man third base while Escobar is sidelined, opening up room for C.J. Cron to take over starting duties at first base.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (intercostal) is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Escobar will get the day off as he awaits the results of his MRI on his right intercostal strain. Fletcher said it appears that Escobar won't require a trip to the DL, which seems to imply good news is on the way, though that won't be known until the test results are disclosed. In the meantime, Luis Valbuena will continue to man the hot corner in his stead, opening up a spot for C.J. Cron to start at first base.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Slated for MRI on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar, who exited Sunday's game with a right intercostal strain, will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Escobar was forced out of Sunday's series finale in the seventh inning. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined at this point, but a trip to the disabled list is certainly in play. Consider him day-to-day for now, but more should be known about his status once his test results are disclosed.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Hits leadoff homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored Sunday against Oakland.

Escobar led off the bottom of the first with a long ball off lefty Sean Manaea. While that was his first home run against left-handed pitching this season, the third baseman's .340 average in that split suggests his success here wasn't unexpected. He's slashing .274/.333/.397 overall.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Returns to lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (back) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the A's, batting leadoff and playing third base.

A back injury kept Escobar on the bench for the last two games, but the down time has allowed the ailment to heal up and now he's ready to get back in the lineup. He'll hit out of the leadoff spot against Jharel Cotton. Escobar's return will bump Luis Valbuena back to the bench.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (back) is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

Escobar will get another day to rest up as he continues to nurse a tight back. He'll remain day-to-day for now, while Luis Valbuena will again start at the hot corner in his stead.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Held out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (back) is not in the lineup Wednesday against Philadelphia.

Escobar will get the day off after exiting Tuesday's contest with back tightness in the eighth inning. The third baseman felt his back tighten up a few times over the course of the game, and manager Mike Scioscia won't risk any sort of additional setback during Wednesday's game. Escobar should still be considered day-to-day moving forward, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he's held out of Thursday's series finale. In his place, Luis Valbuena draws the start at the hot corner, while C.J. Cron takes over at first.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Leaves game with back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar was removed in the eighth inning of Tuesday's win over the Phillies after he experienced tightness in his back. As such, he is considered day-to-day, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The third baseman went 2-for-4 with a run scored prior to his exit. Escobar said he felt his back tighten up earlier in the game, so the fact that he wasn't immediately removed hints that the injury isn't considered serious. We should learn more about his status prior to Wednesday's contest.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Takes seat Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is out of the lineup Thursday against the Indians.

Escobar will get the afternoon off after an 0-for-5 outing Wednesday. In his place, Luis Valbuena will get the nod at third base, while Ben Revere is tasked with leadoff duties.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Bats leadoff Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar batted leadoff Wednesday, going 2-for-5 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored in a win over the Nationals.

With Cameron Maybin (knee) landing on the disabled list, Escobar returned to the leadoff spot after starting the year there. The 34-year-old isn't much more than a batting average booster at this stage of his career, but he could see a few more opportunities to improve on his mark of 37 runs until Maybin returns.

Angels' Yunel Escobar: Snaps homer drought Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Saturday in a loss to the Rangers.

It was his first big blast since May 9, encompassing a stretch of 36 games. Escobar is slashing a useful .288/.346/.755 for the year, but he's been a drain on owners expecting power. Still, he'll often, if not consistently, hit in a spot near the top of the Angels' lineup even after Mike Trout (thumb) returns, so that counts for something.

June 26, 2017 07:48 PM
Angels' Yunel Escobar: Back in action Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (thumb) is starting at third base and batting cleanup Monday against the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Escobar is good to go after missing a pair of games over the weekend due to a left thumb strain. The 34-year-old, who is slashing .280/.331/.415 in 58 games this season, will face southpaw Rich Hill in his return to the lineup.

June 25, 2017 11:40 AM
Angels' Yunel Escobar: Remains out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (thumb) is out of the lineup for Sunday's affair with the Red Sox, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Escobar was scratched from Saturday's game with a left thumb strain and will take a spot on the bench again while recovering from the injury. There was a good chance the third baseman would miss Sunday's finale, but he did manage to play catch on the field prior to the contest. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward as Kaleb Cowart mans the hot corner in his absence.
