Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Out of lineup against Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is not in the lineup for Thursday's contest against Seattle, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Escobar will take a seat after starting the past three games, as manager Paul Molitor elected to go with Ehire Adrianza at shortstop for the club's home opener. Through the first week of the season, Escobar has gone 7-for-16 with one home run and five RBI.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Posts multi-hit effort Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored in Monday's loss to the Pirates.

Although the Twins lost, Escobar put together his second consecutive multi-hit outing, with one of his hits being a double. However, while Escobar has gone 5-for-13 (.385) over three games this season, strikeouts have been an issue early on. Across his 13 plate appearances, the 29-year-old has struck out five times.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Shows power Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's win against the Orioles.

Escobar sat out Saturday after a subpar showing on Opening Day. The rest appeared to help, as he put on a show in Sunday's victory, with each of his hits being for extra bases. Moving forward, Escobar figures to see regular time in Minnesota's lineup while Jorge Polanco serves his 80-game suspension.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Likely to start at shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is expected to be Minnesota's starting shortstop for Opening Day, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Escobar had been in line to open the year in a reserve role for the Twins. However, Jorge Polanco was suspended 80 games Sunday after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, moving Escobar to the top of the team's depth chart at shortstop. Last season, Escobar hit .254/.309/.449 over 129 games with the Twins.
