Eduardo Escobar does it all
by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2013) Twins infielder and utility player Eduardo Escobar does the little things, his manager Ron Gardenhire told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
The 24-year-old has been a pinch-runner and pinch-hitter. He's played shortstop and third base and has been an emergency outfielder as well.
"He says he can pitch," teammate Wilkin Ramirez said. "He’s done it before."
Even more impressive, Escobar is hitting for the Twins. The smallest player on the roster racked up his second three-hit game Tuesday night and he added a walk. Only Joe Mauer has more three-hit games this year with three.
"He’s a nice little player," Gardenhire said. "He’s been swinging great. A lot of fun to watch out there."
Escobar is batting .480 after 12 games and 25 at-bats with a double, triple, homer and five RBI.
