Twins SS Escobar twirls scoreless inning

Twins position players have regaled manager Paul Molitor with claims of knuckleballs, split-fingers and more in futile requests to pitch in a game.

Is Eduardo Escobar, like, good?

I was hoping the Twins would do something at the trade deadline, and they did.  I was hoping they'd get bullpen help, and they did.  So I suppose I'm happy with what they did.  They couldn't really have done much more without gutting the future, and considering their performance since the trade deadline it looks like an every better decision to mostly stand pat.  I was hoping...

Escobar a hit for Twins with newfound opportunity

Twins infielder Eduardo Escobar isn't quite an everyday player, but he's closer to being one now than he was just a month ago. When Minnesota optioned shortstop Pedro Florimon to Triple-A Rochester as Florimon struggled offensively, that opened a door for Escobar to get more playing time -- and he's reaping the benefits at the plate.
