Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Takes seat Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against Miami.

Escobar will be out of the lineup for the first time since April 4 after he went 3-for-11 with a double, two RBI, a walk and a strikeout in the last three games. Josh VanMeter will start at second base and bat sixth.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Knocks in run, scores in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a double, a RBI and a run scored in the 7-2 win Friday over the Rockies.

Escobar was a part of the two-out hit parade in the third inning against Jon Gray. Friday was his second two-hit game in a row and he has hit safely in 10 of his last 12 games. The 32-year-old leads the Diamondbacks in home runs (7), runs (19) and OPS (.847).

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Homers in Game 2 of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the 7-0 win Sunday against the Braves.

Escobar homered in the third inning off Drew Smyly in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader. He also provided a hit and an RBI in Game 1. Sunday marked his seventh home run, tying him for first in the majors. The 32-year-old is slashing .241/.312/.542 with 14 RBI and 15 runs scored.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Homer binge continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Nationals.

Escobar took Erick Fedde deep in the sixth inning, bringing the Diamondbacks within two runs. It was the sixth home run and 10th RBI in nine games for the infielder, who has turned around a 1-for-21 start to the season.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Slams fifth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Thursday's 11-6 win over the Nationals.

Escobar delivered the second of back-to-back home runs in the first inning off Patrick Corbin. After a very slow start to the season, the infielder has multiple hits in five of his last six games, and his 11 runs scored rank among the top 10 in the league. Escobar's hitting has given Diamondbacks fans something to cheer about in an otherwise stagnant offense.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Swats two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's victory over the Reds.

Escobar cracked a two-run shot in the fifth inning off Jose De Leon. The 32-year-old is slashing .216/.256/.595 in a Diamondbacks lineup that is in desperate need of bats to heat up.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Dials in after slow start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a second RBI and a second run scored in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Reds.

Escobar was one of several Arizona regulars who slumped to begin the season, going 1-for-21 over the first five games, but he's turned that around in a big way. His seventh-inning home run was his third in as many contests, and the infielder is 5-for-11 with six RBI and five runs scored during that stretch.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Hits big homer in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run, a double and an additional run scored Friday in a loss to the Reds.

Escobar was the the only Arizona batter with multiple hits in the contest, and he came through with a two-run shot to right field in the eighth inning to tie the game 5-5. After struggling through a 1-for-21 start to the season, the veteran infielder has gone 3-for-7 with a pair of homers and four RBI over his past two games.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Launches first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer and a pair of walks during Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

Escobar attempted to spark a ninth-inning rally for his team with his long ball against Carlos Estevez, which brought the Diamondbacks within four runs. Unfortunately, that was as close as they would come. It was the first home run and just the second hit of the season for the 32-year-old, who's coming off a down season in 2020 (.212/.270/.335 in 54 games).

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

Escobar battled a non-COVID illness late in the spring and has gotten off to an 0-for-11 start to the regular season, with five strikeouts. He will head to the bench Sunday as Asdrubal Cabrera starts at third base and bats fifth against right-hander Chris Paddack.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Returns from illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar (illness) will bat third and play third base Monday against the Cubs, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Escobar missed Sunday's game against the White Sox with a non-COVID illness, but it was evidently a minor one. A one-day absence shouldn't have any impact on his readiness for Opening Day.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Out with non-COVID illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar was scratched from Sunday's Cactus League lineup with a non-COVID illness, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

The 32-year-old was set to start at third base and bat third, but he'll instead take it easy Sunday. The specifics of the illness remain unclear, but it shouldn't affect Escobar's availability for Opening Day.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Launches second spring homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar started at third base and went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's spring game against the Angels.

Escobar launched his second spring homer in the sixth inning and is 6-for-19 with a triple, two home runs, five RBI and three runs scored over seven games. The offseason addition of Asdrubal Cabrera, who plays multiple infield positions, generated speculation about the division of playing time and where Escobar would see most of his starts. Adding to the uncertainty was the question of where the Diamondbacks would eventually deploy Ketel Marte, who can play second base or center field. Thus far in Cactus League play, Escobar's played third base five times and once each at second base and DH. When the regular season kicks off, expect Escobar to be the primary third baseman while both he and Cabrera get time at third and second base.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Sheds weight over winter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar said Wednesday that he reported to spring training at 193 pounds, down from 214 pounds a season ago, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

After Arizona brought in Asdrubal Cabrera in free agency over the winter, Escobar is expected to see more time at second base during the upcoming season. The increased work at the keystone likely factored into Escobar's decision to cut weight, but the 32-year-old's brutal showing at the plate in 2020 may have also played a factor in him changing his diet. After turning in a 113 wRC+ between the 2018 and 2019 seasons, Escobar slumped to a .212/.270/.335 slash line (56 wRC+) over his 222 plate appearances in 2020. Escobar's underlying numbers painted a slightly rosier picture (.263 xBA, .395 xSLG) of his performance, but fantasy players shouldn't be counting on a major bounceback from a slimmed-down Escobar in 2021, especially in the power department.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar isn't starting the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

Escobar drove in a run during the Diamondbacks' 4-0 win in the first game of the twin bill, but he'll play a bench role for Game 2. Wyatt Mathisen will start at third base.

September 18, 2020 04:52 PM
Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: On bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Astros.

Escobar has been quite disappointing at the plate this season, hitting .194/.263/.320. He's gone hitless in his last three games. Josh VanMeter will be the third baseman Friday.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Receives breather in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.

Escobar will receive a veteran's day off after starting in each of the previous five games and going a collective 5-for-21 with three doubles and an RBI. Josh VanMeter will spell Escobar at third base and bat second for the Diamondbacks.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Heads to bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants.

Wyatt Mathisen will pick up his first big-league start at third base in place of Escobar, who went 4-for-13 with a double, an RBI and a run in the first three games of the season. Though he's seen his OPS drop more than 200 points from his 2019 mark (.831), Escobar is still expected to handle an everyday role as the 15-26 Diamondbacks play out the string on a losing season. He may be subject to one or two off days per week, however, as the Diamondbacks look to give opportunities to some of their younger infielders.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Sitting Thursday amid slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is not in Thursday's lineup against the Dodgers.

He is hitting .171 with one home run in 35 at-bats over his last 10 games. Andy Young will start at third base and bat seventh against lefty Clayton Kershaw.

Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Pops fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Giants.

Escobar took Giants starter Johnny Cueto deep in the seventh inning for the Diamondbacks' only run in the game. The 31-year-old Escobar is slashing .200/.292/.350 with four homers, 16 RBI, 16 runs scored and a stolen base through 34 games this season. He showed some signs of life at the plate against the Giants, going 3-for-9 with a homer, a triple and a pair of walks in the three-game series.
