Twins LF Eduardo Escobar slams big blast in Saturday victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) Left fielder Eduardo Escobar managed one of seven hits for the Twins on Saturday in Milwaukee, but it not only jump-started his team, it proved to be the difference in the game.

Escobar smashed a three-run homer in the fourth inning that turned a 1-0 deficit into a 3-1 lead in a three-run win. It was his fourth home run of the season and gave him 26 RBI this season.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar in line for regular time at shortstop?


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Twins infielder Eduardo Escobar will likely take over as the team's starting shortstop following the option of Danny Santana to Triple-A Rochester.

Escobar has bounced around the diamond for the Twins, playing 24 games in left field but making eight starts at shortstop and also seeing limited time at second base and third base. He's the only Twins player besides Santana to get a start at shortstop, and the team balanced the move by recalling Kennys Vargas.

Eduardo Nunez has experience at the position as well, so the team could opt to split playing time between the pair of utility players. The Twins could also end up promoting infielder Doug Bernier, who is already on the 40-man roster.
