News: Escobar and Danny Santana will compete for Minnesota's starting shortstop job this spring, manager Paul Molitor told MLB.com.
Impact: The Twins sound committed to moving Santana from center field back to shortstop, where he played in the minors. If Santana wins the job, Escobar would likely move to a utility role. However, it's not clear who the Twins would start in center field, so it's possible no center field candidate emerges as worthy of everyday playing time and Santana stays in the outfield. Escobar could see a reduction in playing time depending how the competition shapes up this spring.
