Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Goes deep for 14th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Sunday against the Orioles.

Escobar took Alex Cobb deep in the sixth inning for his 14th home run of the season and second in his past five starts. Though he went from June 7 to July 4 without a home run, he has still maintained a .524 slugging percentage in 319 at-bats this season, a mark that would be his career best by nearly 100 points. He may be in for a loss of playing time presuming Miguel Sano rejoins the major-league team at some point this summer, though the Twins will be hard-pressed to move Escobar's bat out of the lineup.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Hits ninth-inning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Wednesday against the Brewers.

The homer came with two outs in the ninth inning against closer Corey Knebel, but it wasn't enough to close the gap as the Twins lost 3-2. The multi-hit game was a key one for Escobar, as he had gone just 4-for-43 over his previous 13 games, putting his playing time potentially in jeopardy with Jorge Polanco back from his suspension.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is not starting Monday against the Brewers, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Escobar will head to the bench in favor of Willians Astudillo. There's now less playing time to go around in the Twins' infield with Jorge Polanco returning from his PED suspension, but Escobar should still start regularly after impressing to the tune of a .277/.332/.527 line on the season.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: In Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (elbow) will man third base and bat third in the order against Texas on Saturday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Escobar was forced to begin Friday's game on the bench due to a right elbow bruise, though the 29-year-old entered the contest as a pinch hitter and looks close to full health after a slight scare earlier this week. Over 69 games this year, Escobar is hitting .298 with a .923 OPS.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Remains out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (elbow) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rangers.

Escobar is dealing with a right elbow bruise after being hit by a pitch Thursday night which will cost him at least one game. Manager Paul Moliter indicated the 29-year-old could return Saturday, with Taylor Motter drawing the start at third base for Friday's game.
