Twins could use trio of Schafer, Robinson, Escobar at CF

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:27 am ET) Twins manager Paul Molitor told reporters that he'll use a blend of Jordan Schafer and Shane Robinson at center field, but wouldn't describe the position as a straight platoon, according to the Star Tribune. With Danny Santana named the starting shortstop, Molitor added that Eduardo Escobar would also see some time in the outfield.

Twins IF Eduardo Escobar hits homer in loss to Red Sox

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/26/15) Twins infielder Eduardo Escobar hits a homerun in the team's 5-4 loss to the Red Sox.

The homer was Escobar's third this spring. The 26-year-old is batting .333, adding 13 RBI. Escobar has seen time at shortstop, second base and third base over his career.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar gets work in the outfield Monday

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/23/15) Twins utility man Eduardo Escobar, who has been said to be pushing Danny Santana for the starting shortstop role, got some extra work in the outfield Monday.

Escobar started the game at third base but was moved to the outfield in the fifth inning. Minnesota likes the options Escobar gives them, reports MLB.com.

"It's a good thing for us," Twins general manager Terry Ryan said. "We like versatility. [Eduardo] Nunez has also been out there, and now Escobar is out there. Versatility is important when you carry 12 pitchers because you don't have much of a bench."

Molitor: Danny Santana hasn't won Twins' shortstop job

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/22/15) Twins manager Paul Molitor isn't sure what to do with Danny Santana

Originally expected to be the Twins starting shortstop, Santana has been pushed in camp by Eduardo Escobar

One option would be to move Santana back to center field, where he started 62 games last season. But on Saturday, Molitor said he hadn't considered that as an option. 

Molitor also said he wasn't ready to name Santana the Opening Day shortstop, leaving him without a position, per Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press

Santana is hitting .321 this spring. 

Eduardo Escobar pushing Danny Santana for Twins' SS job

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/9/15) The Twins expected Danny Santana to be their starting shortstop, but Eduardo Escobar is making it a difficult choice for the team. 

Escobar was the starter last season, finishing with the second-highest doubles total among MLB shortstops. This spring, he's picked up where he left off last year. 

Escobar is 4-for-9 in the first three spring games, with a home run and a double. 

"He knows the situation, and it hasn't affected him in the least," Twins manager Paul Molitor told Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com. "He's had some good at-bats here early in camp. He's a little man who can drive the ball a little bit."
