RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Escobar was traded to Minnesota from the White Sox for Francisco Liriano in July as the Twins looked for options in an unsettled infield. He has proven to be a competent glove at the major league level, but it is not clear if he can hit enough for even a utility role. He has no power which is not offset by mediocre contact and walk rates. Although he is had some decent stolen-base totals in the minors, he has been caught too many times to think he will have that in his repertoire if he finds regular time in the majors. He will enter spring with a shot at utility job, but may spend most of the season at Triple-A.

2012

Escobar barely eked out a .300 OBP in 2011, which was his first campaign at Triple-A Charlotte. He has stolen double-digit bags in each of the last three seasons, but his success rate on the basepaths is a modest 63.6 percent for his minor league career. His Triple-A struggles aside, Escobar's glove looked MLB-ready in brief September action, so he could be the first guy the club turns to should something happen to Alexei Ramirez. Still, it will probably be another year or two before the club considers him for an everyday job.

2011

Escobar earned a spot on the 40-man roster after a surprising showing in the 2010 Arizona Fall League. Right now he profiles as a glove-first, bat-second type of shortstop, but the bat should have plenty of time to develop in the minors as the White Sox have no need to rush him to the majors.
