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) could be shut down for the season.

Escobar left Friday's game against the Tigers after he was hit by a pitch, and his return "up in the air." X-rays came back negative, but with just four games remaining the Twins don't have anything to gain by rushing him back.

Twins recalled INF Eduardo Escobar from Triple-A Rochester.

Escobar, who was acquired in July as part of the Francisco Liriano deal, batted just .207/.281/.276 with zero homers, three RBI, two stolen bases and a .557 OPS in 36 games with the White Sox earlier this year. He is unlikely to carry any fantasy value.

Twins acquired INF Eduardo Escobar and LHP Pedro Hernandez from the White Sox for LHP Francisco Liriano.

Escobar is batting just .207/.281/.276 in 36 major league games this season and produced a weak .666 OPS across 579 games in the minors. He's only 23 years old but the infielder seems doubtful to ever become a reliable everyday player in the bigs.
