Escobar is out of the lineup Saturday against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Escobar was claimed off revocable waivers by the A's earlier this month, but the Rays opted against sending the 31-year-old to Oakland. There's still a chance he could be moved elsewhere, but consider this a day off, his first since Aug. 12, until there's indication otherwise. Ben Zobrist will man short in his absence.
