Escobar is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Escobar is sitting on a .245 batting average with only five extra-base hits and six RBI on the year. The greatest area for concern lies with his 22 strikeouts versus only five walks on the year. Even though he is known as a player that doesn't draw walks, he is not providing any pop or stolen bases (zero on the year) to the lineup either. Eduardo Nunez will start in Escobar's place on Wednesday, playing shortstop and batting ninth.
