Eduardo Escobar SS/3B MIN 2 Months

Eduardo Escobar belted a solo homer off Drew Smyly in the third inning on Friday, leading the Twins to a 2-0 victory over the Tigers in Detroit.

He has done a terrific job at the plate in his limited time with the Twins, hitting .309/.351/.469 with two homers and 14 RBI in 53 games. He's worth using as a middle infield option in AL-only formats for as long as he's receiving regular playing time.

Eduardo Escobar came off the bench and hit a home run in the top of the 10th Monday to lead the Twins to a 1-0 win over the Indians.

Even though Escobar was kind of named the Twins' starting shortstop on Friday, he was out of the lineup for the second time in three games tonight. One would think tonight's homer has earned him at least the next couple of starts, but one never can tell with Ron Gardenhire. He's certainly the better AL-only fantasy option than Pedro Florimon Jr. anyway.

Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said Friday that Eduardo Escobar will serve as the team's primary shortstop for the time being.

Danny Santana is being recalled from Triple-A on Saturday and will serve as his backup. The 25-year-old is off to a strong start this season, slashing .324/.351/.412 with five RBI in his first 34 at-bats. His lack of power and speed though make him virtually useless in fantasy leagues.

Eduardo Escobar went 4-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Twins' shortstop on Wednesday.

Escobar could get a look as the Twins' primary shortstop after this once. Pedro Florimon is a superior defender, but he's not hitting at all. Escobar, on the other hand, is at .345 in 29 at-bats. He doesn't really have much fantasy upside because of his limited power and complete absence of stolen base ability, but he might have a little value in AL-only leagues.

Twins recalled INF Eduardo Escobar from Triple-A Rochester.

The 24-year-old infielder has appeared in 55 games for the Twins this season, hitting .214/.268/.328 with three homers, nine RBI and a 10/23 BB/K ratio. He'll provide depth and defensive versatility for the Twins down the stretch.

Twins optioned INF Eduardo Escobar to Triple-A Rochester.

Escobar has batted just .214/.268/.328 in a utility role this season. The Twins have also optioned Oswaldo Arcia and Chris Parmelee.

Eduardo Escobar won it for the Twins Wednesday with a two-run double in the bottom of the ninth off Tigers reliever Phil Coke.

It should have been a sac fly, but a misplay in the Tigers outfield allowed the ball to bounce, and Brian Dozier came all the way around from first base. It was Escobar's first at-bats of the game, as he entered on a double-switch earlier in the contest.

Eduardo Escobar went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles Monday versus the Cardinals.

The Twins' decision to demote Drew Butera today appears to have locked up a bench spot for Escobar. Now only can he serve as a backup throughout the infield, but he can also serve as the emergency catcher behind Joe Mauer and Ryan Doumit. Still, he shouldn't have any fantasy value at all.

Eduardo Escobar (elbow) went 1-for-3 with a run scored Tuesday in his return to the lineup.

Escobar hadn't played since he was his in the left elbow by a pitch last Friday. The 23-year-old infielder is batting .250 (10-for-40) with six RBI in 13 games since joining the Twins.
