Escobar isn't in the Angels' lineup Friday against the Twins, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Not starting Tuesday
Escobar is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game at Tampa Bay, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Escobar has operated as the Halos' primary third baseman over the past couple weeks but will sit Tuesday while in the midst of a 1-for-15 slump. David Fletcher will take over at the hot corner and bat ninth.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Draws seventh straight start
Escobar will start at third base and bat fifth in Wednesday's game against the Mariners.
Escobar is without a direct path to an everyday role at any one spot in the infield, but he'll pick up his seventh consecutive start Wednesday, with six coming at third base. Even if Mike Moustakas' wrist injury doesn't cost him any further playing time, Escobar should still play regularly over the lefty-hitting Moustakas when the Angels face right-handed pitchers. Escobar hasn't done much to take advantage of the recent uptick in playing time, going 3-for-21 with one run and no RBI over his past six starts.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Homers in loss
Escobar went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's loss to Oakland.
Escobar's sixth home run of the year was a two-run shot to put the Angels on the board in the fourth inning. He snapped a 19-game homerless drought, during which he posted a .528 OPS with just two RBI. He's now slashing .239/.283/.378 with 16 extra-base knocks through 248 plate appearances.... See More ...

Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Moves to bench Monday
Escobar is out of the lineup for Monday's game in Atlanta, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Escobar had picked up three starts in the Angels' last four games, but he appears poised for a downturn in playing time moving forward after Anaheim bolstered its infield Sunday with the acquisition of C.J. Cron. With Cron and Mike Moustakas expected to serve as the team's regular starters in the corner infield versus right-handed pitching, Escobar may be relegated to the short side of a platoon at third base with Moustakas....

Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Playing time trending up
Escobar will start at third base and bat seventh in Sunday's game in Toronto, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Escobar appeared to settle into a part-time role coming out of the All-Star break, but injuries to multiple position players have since paved the way for the 34-year-old to pick up more work. He'll be in the lineup Sunday for the fifth time in seven games, with all of his starts during that stretch coming at first or third base.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Hits first homer as Angel
Escobar went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run and a walk in the second contest of Thursday's doubleheader against Detroit.
Escobar sat out the first game of the twin bill before starting at first base and batting eighth in Game 2. The veteran contributed to a four-homer effort for Los Angeles, swatting a solo shot to right field in the fourth inning. It was his first long ball since joining the Angels on June 23 -- in fact, prior to Thursday, he hadn't gone deep in 35 total games dating back to May 16 against Tampa Bay when he was still a member of the Mets. Escobar has just five homers in 60 games overall this season after going deep at least 20 times in each of his previous two campaigns.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Sitting out Friday
Escobar is absent from the lineup Friday against the Pirates.
Luis Rengifo will handle second base and Mike Moustakas is playing third versus the Pirates and right-hander Johan Oviedo. Escobar has slashed just .250/.283/.286 in 16 games (60 plate appearances) since the Angels acquired him from the Mets in late June.... See More ... See Less

Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Gets another look at keystone
Escobar will start at second base and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Escobar will stick in the lineup for the fourth time in five games, with the veteran having made two starts apiece at third base and second base. The latter position will likely represent Escobar's primary path to steady at-bats at least through the All-Star break, after Brandon Drury (shoulder) was moved to the 10-day injured list Sunday. Since being acquired from the Mets on June 23, Escobar has gone 6-for-21 with five runs and an RBI over his first six games with the Halos.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Back from citizenship test
The Angels activated Escobar from the restricted list Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Escobar has to travel to Florida for the test but is only expected to miss the first game of the Angels' four-game series against the visiting White Sox. He'll technically be on the restricted list while he's away from the club. Mike Moustakas is playing third base and batting fifth for the Halos in Monday's series opener versus Chicago....

Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Sitting Monday
Escobar isn't in the Angels' lineup Monday against the White Sox, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Scores four times in Angels debut
Escobar went 2-for-4 with a walk, four runs and an RBI in a 25-1 rout against Colorado on Saturday.
In his first contest since being acquired from the Mets in a trade Friday, Escobar was part of an offensive onslaught during which the Angels produced franchise records with 25 runs and 28 hits. The infielder made a good first impression, scoring four times before being replaced in the field late in the game. Escobar started at third base in his debut contest with Los Angeles and could see near-everyday opportunities there until Anthony Rendon (wrist) is able to return from the injured list....

Angels' Eduardo Escobar: Acquired from Mets
The Angels acquired Escobar and cash considerations from the Mets on Friday for pitchers Landon Marceaux and Coleman Crow.
The Mets will pay all but the prorated minimum salary on the remaining $9.5 million owed to Escobar for 2023, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. The move comes shortly after it was announced that Gio Urshela was going to miss the rest of the season due to a fracture pelvis. In 40 games with the Mets, Escobar slashed .236/.286/.409 with four homers and two stolen bases over 120 plate appearances. He should see time at third and second base for the Halos, and due to a plethora of injuries around the infield could be a regular for the foreseeable future.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Swipes second bag
Escobar went 1-for-3 with a walk, a triple, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
Getting the start at third base against left-hander Matthew Liberatore and batting eighth, Escobar collected his second three-bagger and second steal of 2023. The veteran infielder lost his starting spot at the hot corner to Brett Baty earlier in the year, but with the rookie now struggling -- Baty's slashing .219/.301/.260 over his current 22-game homer drought -- the door could be opening a crack for Escobar to reclaim a more significant role if he can put together a productive stretch at the plate....
