Twins | Riding Eduardo Escobar

Minnesota Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said the team will continue to ride SS Eduardo Escobar at shortstop for now, with SS Pedro Florimon hitting .111 and stuck on the bench. SS Danny Santana will be another bench option. "Escobar is swinging the bat well," Antony said. "I think Gardy plans to play him primarily at short right now. Gardy's going to ride that one and give him a chance right now, and Danny will be more of a bench guy." The team thinks Santana may also be able to fill in in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Florimon can be dropped in all mixed leagues, for now. Escobar and Santana are long-term bets in AL-only leagues to take the gig away from Florimon if they prove their worth.
