Diamondbacks optioned LHP Edwin Escobar to Triple-A Reno.

The 24-year-old southpaw continues to shuttle back and forth between Reno and the big league club whenever they need an extra arm in the bullpen. He has struggled in his time with the D'Backs, registering a 15.95 ERA and 2.59 WHIP in his 7 1/3 innings. He'll surely be back at some point during the second half.

Diamondbacks recalled LHP Edwin Escobar from Triple-A Reno.

Escobar is taking the roster spot left vacant by Shelby Miller, but it looks as though the 24-year-old left-hander will pitch out of the bullpen initially. He has struggled in two starts with Arizona this season, yielding 12 runs -- 11 earned -- over seven innings.
Jul 15 - 5:07 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said LHP Edwin Escobar will be recalled from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

He'll take the roster spot vacated by Shelby Miller, who was just optioned to Reno. Escobar has struggled in two starts for the Diamondbacks this year, allowing 11 earned runs in only seven innings of work. Hale has already said Zack Godley will start in Miller's place Tuesday against Toronto, which suggests Escobar will be used as a reliever.

Diamondbacks optioned LHP Edwin Escobar to Triple-A Reno.

Escobar made two starts for the Diamondbacks. Neither went well. When the combined dust settled, he had allowed 12 runs (11 earned) on 15 hits over seven innings. Manager Chip Hale said at the beginning of the week that the 24-year-old southpaw was being transitioned to the bullpen. It looks like he will be making that transition in Triple-A.
Jun 10 - 5:40 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Monday that Edwin Escobar is being moved to the bullpen.

It's understandable, as Escobar gave up 12 runs (11 earned) in seven innings over two starts. The Diamondbacks have yet to announce who will start Saturday against the Marlins.
Jun 6 - 6:42 PM

Edwin Escobar struggled again in Saturday's loss to the Cubs, allowing four runs on five hits in just 3 2/3 innings of work.

Escobar walked two and struck out one in the ballgame. It was all downhill from the start, with Dexter Fowler launching a solo home run to start the game. The Cubs then tacked on three runs in the fourth to chase him. With a 14.14 ERA and 2.57 WHIP through his first two starts, it's unlikely that the Diamondbacks send him back out there for another start.
Jun 4 - 5:28 PM

Edwin Escobar's first start in the majors didn't go well, as he was lit up for eight runs -- seven earned -- over just 3 1/3 frames in a loss to the Astros.

The D'Backs surely didn't want to have to turn to Escobar in this one, as his numbers in the upper minors have been rather lackluster. But, with Shelby Miller (finger) and Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) on the shelf, they didn't have many options. There's a good chance Arizona will go with someone else this weekend against the Cubs. If Escobar gets trotted out there again, it will be ugly.
May 30 - 8:23 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Edwin Escobar from Triple-A Reno.

He will debut for the Diamondbacks on Monday against the Astros. Escobar posted underwhelming numbers in the minor leagues and should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
May 29 - 8:09 PM

Edwin Escobar will start for the Diamondbacks on Monday against the Astros.

It'll be the first big league start for the 24-year-old southpaw. He has been uninspiring in five starts at Triple-A Reno this season, compiling a 4.68 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 17/6 K/BB ratio across 25 innings. He can be safely avoided for fantasy purposes.
May 27 - 6:56 PM

Diamondbacks claimed LHP Edwin Escobar off waivers from the Red Sox.

He had been designated for assignment last week. Escobar is unscored upon at the Triple-A level this season and should get a shot with the big club before long.
Apr 29 - 3:05 PM

Red Sox designated LHP Edwin Escobar for assignment.

Escobar was sporting a 0.00 ERA in seven innings this season at Triple-A Pawtucket. He's left-handed and relatively young, so there should be interest on waivers. Boston acquired him from the Giants in the Jake Peavy trade.
Apr 20 - 2:14 PM

Red Sox optioned LHP Edwin Escobar to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Escobar, who turns 24 in April, was limited to 19 appearances (including six starts) at the Triple-A level due to an elbow injury and posted a shaky 5.26 ERA with 24 strikeouts and 25 walks over 49 2/3 innings. He'll continue to serve as bullpen depth in the minors.
Mar 15 - 3:17 PM

Red Sox activated LHP Edwin Escobar from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Escobar has missed most of the year while dealing with elbow inflammation. The 23-year-old left-hander was acquired from San Francisco last season in the Jake Peavy trade.
Sat, Jun 13, 2015 08:50:00 PM

Edwin Escobar (elbow) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday.

The southpaw will likely require a lenghthy rehab stint and then is likely to function in the bullpen at Triple-A. He could become an option for the Red Sox in the second half of the season.
