Escobar (shoulder) took some swings Sunday and said he felt good, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

He could return Monday. If not, it sounds like he will play again in the final week of the season.

Escobar (shoulder) is not expected to play until Tuesday at the earliest, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Whereas Escobar thinks he'll be able to play by Monday, manager Ron Gardenhire said it's not likely, given the fact that Escobar can't even high five his teammates. Danny Santana is making another start at short Saturday.

Escobar (shoulder) is out of the lineup again Saturday, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The jammed right shoulder, suffered on a diving attempt at short Tuesday, will keep Escobar out of the lineup for a third straight game. He did work out to about 100 feet while playing catch with a trainer Saturday morning, though a return for Sunday's series finale is far from certain.

Escobar (shoulder) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Indians, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Escobar will miss a second straight start with the jammed right shoulder, suffered on a diving attempt at short during the fourth inning of Tuesday's game. His status for the remainder of the weekend series is uncertain, but look for Danny Santana to continue manning short until Escobar is cleared to return.

Escobar (shoulder) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

A diving attempt at short Tuesday left Esocbar with a jammed right shoulder, and he'll miss at least one start as a result of the injury. Eduardo Nunez will draw the start in his absence. Escobar will be afforded another day to rest with the team off Thursday, but a return for Friday's opener against Cleveland is far from certain.

Escobar left Tuesday's game against the Tigers with a jammed right shoulder, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Eduardo Nunez came into the game at short, after Escobar hurt himself on a diving attempt in the fourth inning. Consider Escobar, who singled off Rick Porcello in his lone at-bat of the contest, day-to-day and questionable to play in Wednesday's series finale.

Escobar is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader with the Indians, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Escobar received the nod at shortstop in the early tilt, going 1-for-3. He's continued to hold down a respectable .273 average for the season, but the absence of home runs (five) and stolen bases (one) has made his fantasy production rather lukewarm. Eduardo Nunez will cover shortstop for Escobar in the final game of the series.

Escobar is out of the lineup Thursday against the Angels, Tyler Mason of FOX Sports North reports.

Escobar broke out of his recent offensive slumber with a three-hit, two-RBI performance Wednesday vs. the White Sox, but he'll still be given the day off. Eduardo Nunez will fill in at shortstop.

Escobar is not in the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, Mike Bernardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Thursday's benching did little to spark Escobar, who returned to the lineup the last two games and went 0-for-7. He's now failed to record a hit in his last six games, and could lose out on more frequent at-bats to Eduardo Nunez in September if he fails to get out of the slump.
