EDWIN ESCOBAR RUMORS

Jake Peavy dazzles Diamondbacks, Giants gain a game

Edwin Escobar might turn into Corey Kluber*. In a year or two or five, we might look at the Red Sox, spoiled with riches and young players, with more than a touch of envy. Escobar might be more than a mid-rotation guy, something might click, and in 20 years, some young Giants fan is going to stumble across his page on Space-Baseball-Reference.space and say, "Dang. What a bad...

How Much (Extra) Credit Should We Give a Lefty Starter?

Edwin Escobar, who came from the Giants in the Jake Peavy deal, debuted with the Red Socks on Tuesday. One inning of work is not enough to know much other than perhaps velocity, but that point alone started a discussion. He sat just under 92 mph, and once you correct for his appearance coming out […]

Heath Hembree Optioned To Pawtucket; Edwin Escobar Called Up To Red Sox

Edwin Escobar Called Up By Red Sox; Heath Hembree Optioned To Pawtucket

Right-hander Heath Hembree certainly earned the respect of his teammates and coaches Saturday. It came at a price. Hembree threw 62 pitches over four shutout relief innings in the Boston Red Sox’s 5-4, 19-inning loss to the Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium. The Red Sox, needing a fresh arm for Sunday’s series finale, optioned Hembree to Triple-A Pawtucket after the game. Left...

Nostalgia Versus…

Well, that was fun yesterday.  Mostly.  Even if the California League played like a group of Pony League All-Stars. The Carolina League came into town and absolutely beat up on Cali’s best, 12-2.  The California League committed four errors, and a few mental ones on top of it.  San Jose’s Edwin Escobar gave up five runs (all earned, somehow) in an inning of work, the first...
