News: Escobar (shoulder) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: A diving attempt at short Tuesday left Esocbar with a jammed right shoulder, and he'll miss at least one start as a result of the injury. Eduardo Nunez will draw the start in his absence. Escobar will be afforded another day to rest with the team off Thursday, but a return for Friday's opener against Cleveland is far from certain.(RotoWire, )

News: Escobar is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader with the Indians, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: Escobar received the nod at shortstop in the early tilt, going 1-for-3. He's continued to hold down a respectable .273 average for the season, but the absence of home runs (five) and stolen bases (one) has made his fantasy production rather lukewarm. Eduardo Nunez will cover shortstop for Escobar in the final game of the series.(RotoWire, )
