Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Padres are "looking at" Alcides Escobar in addition to other free agent shortstops.
Heyman says the Padres are seeking a stopgap option at shortstop until top prospect Fernando Tatis Jr. is ready, which they think will be within the next year or so. Escobar, who turns 31 next month, sports a hideous .256/.286/.343 batting line over the last three seasons, but he still has a solid glove and should come cheaply. Mon, Nov 13, 2017 12:28:00 PM
