8/29/20

Body: 5-foot-9, 168 pounds. Athletic build with present strength and quick twitch. Understands his size and stays within throughout his game. Still has room to add size and strength.
Defense: MIF. Speed and lateral quickness keep him up the middle. Smooth actions through the fielding process with a quick transfer. Ranges well to both sides with feel for the backhand play. Above average footwork. Seems to show more comfort at the 2B position.

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.
