Infielder Eduardo Escobar wasn't thrilled to be traded to the Minnesota Twins. In fact, when Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura told him in July he was part of a deadline deal for Francisco Liriano, Escobar said Tuesday, "I felt so sad and started crying. "I didn't know what was going to happen next." Escobar went 2-for-4 with a walk and three RBI in his Twins debut Tuesday, an 18-9 victory against his old team at U.S. Cellular Field. Using new teammate Alexi Casilla as his interpreter, Escobar met Twins beat reporters before the game after being officially recalled by his new club. "This is a little hard because I played all my career with the White Sox and I appreciate a lot the opportunity they gave me to play in the big leagues," he said. "But I appreciate being here, too; they've given me another opportunity here." At the time of the trade, Escobar, 23, had played 36 games with the White Sox, hitting .207 with three ...

Ben Revere is on his horse

Ben Revere is fleet of foot, if you didn’t know. He became the first Twin since Chuck Knoblauch with consecutive 30+ stolen base seasons. He doesn’t hit for much power, which can seemingly diminish his overall value. After all, Jamey Carroll has more home runs than Revere does in a Twins uniform. Power is one of the 5 tools, and is certainly the most easily appreciated. Speed...

Twins' Carroll marks 10 years in majors with rare homer

It took Jamey Carroll a long time to break into the major leagues, so looking ahead to a long career was unrealistic. He was 28 years old when the Montreal Expos called him up to play against the Chicago Cubs on Sept. 11, 2002, at Wrigley Field. "I just remember when I first got called up and thinking, 'Wow, I'll be 38 if I ever make it 10 years,'" said Carroll...

Carroll homers for first time in over three years

The last time Jamey Carroll homered, he was wearing a Cleveland Indians uniform. Since then, he played two homerless seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers and was without a home run through 120 games (411 at-bats) with the Minnesota Twins. On Monday, Carroll's homerless drought ended. On a 2-2 count from White Sox starter Hector Santiago, Carroll connected on a 95 mph pitch...

Twins look to break Chicago skid

The Minnesota Twins have typically been a thorn in the Chicago White Sox's side, but not this year. Back in sole possession of first place in the AL Central, the White Sox look to win their seventh straight at home over the Twins on Tuesday night.
