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

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.

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.

Edwin Escobar has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Pawtucket with left elbow inflammation.

It isn't expected to be a major issue and he should be able to return to action in a couple of weeks. He'll begin the year in a bullpen at the Triple-A level but should get an opportunity with the big league club at some point during the season.

Red Sox recalled LHP Edwin Escobar from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Red Sox recalled LHP Edwin Escobar from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Acquired from the Giants in the Jake Peavy deal, Escobar allowed two runs over his first 12 innings at Pawtucket. He'll give the Red Sox some length out of the bullpen after Saturday's 19-inning affair.
Sun, Aug 10, 2014 01:15:00 PM

Red Sox acquired LHP Edwin Escobar and RHP Heath Hembree from the Red Sox for RHP Jake Peavy and cash considerations.

Escobar began the season as the second ranked prospect in the Giants system, but struggled to the tune of a 5.11 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 96/37 K/BB ratio over 111 innings at Triple-A Fresno in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. Still just 22-years-old, the hard-throwing southpaw makes for a nice addition to the Red Sox system.
