News: Escobar is not in the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, Mike Bernardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: Thursday's benching did little to spark Escobar, who returned to the lineup the last two games and went 0-for-7. He's now failed to record a hit in his last six games, and could lose out on more frequent at-bats to Eduardo Nunez in September if he fails to get out of the slump.(RotoWire, )
