Twins and INF Eduardo Escobar avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.85 million contract.
Escobar hit .254/.309/.449 in 457 at-bats while starting about two out of every three games for the Twins last year. If he hits that well again, it wouldn’t be so bad if he continued to play that much. Most likely, though, the power will fall off some, and it’d be for the best if the Twins didn’t have to use him quite so often. He might be the third baseman initially if Miguel Sano gets suspended.
