The Baltimore Orioles signed free-agent RP Edgmer Escalona (Rockies) to an undisclosed one-year deal Wednesday, Nov. 20. He went 1-4 with a 5.67 ERA with the Colorado Rockies last season. "He's a big, strong guy - 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds - and he has a good arm," said executive vice president Dan Duquette. "The thing that got our attention is he's developing a changeup as well that's helping him get out left-handed hitters." Escalona is currently starting in the Venezuelan Winter League to refine his changeup.

Colorado Rockies RPs Rafael Betancourt (groin) and Edgmer Escalona (elbow) will throw to hitters Tuesday, June 25. Betancourt has made rapid progress after receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection three weeks ago. He could be activated from the disabled list Thursday, June 27. Escalona could need a short rehab assignment before returning. Manager Walt Weiss said Betancourt will return to the closer's role, allowing RP Rex Brothers to return to a setup role.
Fantasy Tip: Make plans to activate Betancourt on your roster later this week. Brothers, although he'll lose save opps when Betancourt returns, has pitched very well and warrants ownership in deeper mixed leagues even without the role of closer attached to his name.
