2/10/19 -Developing, 5-foot-8, 150, Escobar has an athletic build with room for weight and strength gains.  He displayed solid infield actions with capable arm strength and good carry on his on-target throws.  He showed a feel for multiple angle throws feeding double play turns and on slow rollers. At the plate, Escobar maintains balance throughout a fluid swing. He made consistent quality contact, utilizing a simple approach while striding slightly closed.  Not much too go wrong with the approach or swing. Look for this guy to be an offensive second baseman down the road.
