White Sox's Alcides Escobar: Joins White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Friday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Escobar was released by the Orioles on Wednesday and was apparently unable to find any major-league opportunities elsewhere. The 32-year-old should head to Triple-A Charlotte and will serve as a depth option at shortstop for the White Sox.

Alcides Escobar: Released by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar was released by the Orioles on Wednesday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

The Orioles elected to go with youth and upside over veteran leadership, with the 32-year-old Escobar jettisoned in favor of Rule 5 picks Richie Martin and Drew Jackson. Escobar's viability as a major leaguer is questionable at this point in his career, as the advanced metrics haven't liked his defense for the last few years and he hasn't posted a wRC+ above 69 since 2014.

Orioles' Alcides Escobar: Decision coming Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar has an opt-out in his contract which triggers Wednesday, meaning the Orioles' decision on whether or not to add him to the major-league roster is imminent, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

The Orioles must decide if they want a veteran taking up a spot on the roster or they'd be better served giving playing time to young players given where they currently sit in the competitive cycle. Escobar is hitting just .219 with a .597 OPS this spring, though Baltimore was likely never expecting much more than veteran leadership from him at this point in his career. Rule 5 picks Richie Martin and Drew Jackson represent the Orioles' primary alternatives at shortstop.

Orioles' Alcides Escobar: Solid outing at dish
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 1-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's exhibition against Philadelphia.

Escobar plated a run in the second inning on a fielder's choice and laced an RBI single into left field to score Jonathan Villar in the third. He's off to a strong start with Baltimore and will aim to keep it rolling as he attempts to earn a utility role with the big-league club.

Orioles' Alcides Escobar: Arrives at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar joined the Orioles at their spring training facility Tuesday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

Escobar had struck an agreement to join the Orioles on a minor-league deal over the weekend but needed a couple of days to get his travel arrangements in order before reporting to camp. He'll be only a day behind his fellow position players, so the delay shouldn't impact Escobar's ability to make the club. After mostly serving as an everyday shortstop for Kansas City the past eight seasons, Escobar will be competing for a utility gig with the big club and looks on track to fall well short of the 500 plate appearances he's cleared every year since 2009.
