Escobar is not in the lineup against the Indians on Thursday, MLBpressbox.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Escobar, along with a few other regulars, will spend the series finale on the bench after securing a playoff spot due to the Angels' loss Wednesday night. Over the course of September, Escobar is slashing .257/.299/.584 with eight home runs and 22 RBI. Ehire Adrianza draws the start at the hot corner in his stead.

Escobar went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI during Sunday's win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Escobar slapped an RBI single in the fifth inning and followed that up with a three-run shot in the sixth. The Twins' third baseman put together a strong performance during the four-game series, going 6-for-18 with seven RBI in the sweep. He now holds a .252 average with 20 homers and 70 RBI on the campaign.

Escobar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Saturday's loss to Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

With Miguel Sano (shin) on the disabled list, Escobar has filled in admirably at third base. Escobar entered Saturday's game with six homers, 14 RBI, 11 runs and a .967 OPS through 14 September games, and those numbers only improved after his 19th long fly of the campaign.

Escobar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Saturday during the Twins' 5-2 loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Escobar hit a laser over the right-field wall off Jake Junis to tie the game at 1 in the third inning. His blast marked his 18th of the season and fifth in September, during which he's now 12-for-36 with 13 RBI. Still, it's uncertain that he's done enough to justify anything more than part-time duty after Miguel Sano (shin) returns from the disabled list, likely in the coming days.

Escobar went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

After hitting two homers and driving in six runs Saturday, Escobar was right back at it Sunday. He's penciled into an everyday gig at third base for the duration of Miguel Sano's (shin) absence, and Escobar is capable of providing serviceable fantasy numbers in deeper settings until Sano returns.

Escobar will start at third base and bat eighth Sunday against the Blue Jays, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Escobar will stick in the lineup for a 13th straight game, with Miguel Sano's (shin) move to the disabled list affording the infielder regular at-bats. Since reclaiming a starting role, Escobar is batting .271 with two home runs, nine RBI and five runs, so he could carry value in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats until Sano returns from the DL.

Escobar went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in the nightcap of Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Escobar produced an RBI single in the third inning and added an RBI double in the eighth. Both of those hits came tantalizingly close to doing even more damage, as each pushed an additional runner to third base. The versatile infielder had quite the day overall, finishing 4-for-9 with two doubles and three RBI between the two games.

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

EDGE Analysis

His playing time is trending in the wrong direction -- Saturday's absence marks Escobar's fourth in the team's last five games. The 28-year-old was red hot throughout June, batting .354/.398/.549, but he's posted a sub-.600 OPS since the All-Star break.

Escobar is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Brewers, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Escobar's opportunities have been on the rise since late July after manager Paul Molitor removed Jorge Polanco from his everyday role at shortstop, but Escobar hasn't really been able to capitalize. He's batting an unremarkable .203/.329/.305 since the All-Star break, and with Polanco having heated up in recent games to take back ownership of the shortstop spot, Escobar's window to make an impact for fantasy owners may have closed. Escobar will hit the bench for a second straight game Wednesday.

Escobar is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Escobar is just 3-for-22 (.136) in seven games this month, so he'll head to the bench for a breather after starting nine straight contests. Jorge Polanco will take his place at shortstop for the game.
