  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Heads to bench Wednesday

    Escobar isn't starting Wednesday against the Nationals.

    Escobar is getting a rare chance to rest during Wednesday's regular-season finale after he went 2-for-12 with a run, an RBI, three walks and five strikeouts over the last four games. Mark Vientos will start at the hot corner and bat seventh.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Carries offense with five RBI

    Escobar went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI in Wednesday's 5-4 victory over the Marlins.

    Escobar put the team on his back Wednesday with a two-run homer off lefty starter Jesus Luzardo in the seventh inning, a two-run single to tie the game in the eighth and a walk-off RBI single in the 10th. The third baseman has accumulated nine multi-hit games in his last 20, including two three-hit games in his last three contests. In addition, the 33-year-old has tallied 11 RBI over his last five games.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Mashes grand slam

    Escobar went 1-for-5 with a grand slam and an additional run in a 9-2 win against the Athletics on Friday.

    Escobar connected on a two-out grand slam in the fifth inning off Oakland starter Cole Irvin and later tacked on New York's final run in the seventh. The long ball is the seventh of September for the 33-year-old who continues to rake with a .329/.388/.671 slash line, 15 runs and 17 RBI in 21 games this month.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Powers offense in win

    Escobar went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Pirates.

    Escobar's blast in the second inning was all the offense the Mets needed. He's hit safely in 13 of 16 games in September, going 22-for-56 (.393) with nine extra-base hits, including six homers. The 33-year-old's strong month has restored him to a starting role at third base, and it's lifted his season slash line to .240/.292/.434 through 122 contests. He's added 18 homers, 56 RBI, 54 runs scored and 24 doubles.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Stays hot with homer

    Escobar went 3-for-5 with one double, one homer, two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 11-3 win over the Marlins.

    Escobar gave the Mets the lead with an RBI double in the fourth inning and led off the seventh with a home run off righty reliever Jeff Brigham. The third baseman has been on a great run in his last eight games with a .500 average and 1.496 OPS in 32 plate appearances. After going 18 games without a home run, the 33-year-old has hit four in his last eight games.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Singles barrage in twin bill

    Escobar went 6-for-9 with two runs scored and two RBI across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader sweep of the Pirates.

    All six hits were singles -- two in the matinee and four in the nightcap -- but Escobar was able to turn them into some production while batting eighth in the lineup in both contests. The 33-year-old has had a tough season, but he's at least finishing it with a flourish. Since moving back into the starting lineup nine games ago, he's batting .448 (13-for-29) with three homers and six RBI.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Homers in back-to-back games

    Escobar went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Nationals.

    The Mets mustered only four hits in the contest, and Escobar's long ball accounted for their lone run. He's taking advantage of renewed playing time at third base in September, going 2-for-7 with two homers, four RBI and two walks through three games this month. The veteran infielder is slashing just .219/.272/.397 on the year with 14 homers, 48 RBI, 43 runs scored and 22 doubles through 109 contests, but he should have a clear path to playing time until Luis Guillorme (groin) returns.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Swats 13th homer

    Escobar went 1-for-2 with a walk, a home run and three RBI in Friday's 7-3 win over the Nationals.

    The 33-year-old took Josiah Gray deep for a two-run shot in the second inning, giving Escobar his first homer since July 26 and his 13th of the year. While he did miss time with an oblique injury between those long balls, he slashed just .191/.224/.277 during that 18-game power drought. His current hold on the starting spot at third base is only due to the fact Brett Baty (thumb) and Luis Guillorme (groin) are on the injured list.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Takes over as primary third baseman

    Escobar will start at third base and bat eighth Thursday against the Dodgers, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Escobar looked on track to fill a utility infield role for the Mets when he was reinstated from the injured list over the weekend, but he's now poised to reclaim the everyday role at third base with rookie Brett Baty expected to miss the rest of the regular season while recovering from right thumb surgery. The Mets added journeyman infielder Deven Marrero from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday to give the team another option at the hot corner, but in spite of his struggles at the plate this season, Escobar should play regularly against both right- and left-handed pitching. However, Escobar could be in danger of moving into a short-side platoon role once the lefty-hitting Luis Guillorme (oblique) returns from the IL, perhaps as soon as next week.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Kept quiet in return

    Escobar (oblique) went 0-for-3 in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Rockies.

    Escobar had chances to make an impact but instead left five men on base in his fruitless return after a minimal stay on the injured list. The 33-year-old has primarily played third base this season, but he could shift into a utility role over the last few weeks of the season to allow prospect Brett Baty consistent playing time at the hot corner. Escobar is fairly experienced around the infield in his career, though he'll likely need to improve slightly on his season-long .214/.267/.381 slash line to remain a consistent presence in the lineup.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Activated, starting Saturday

    Escobar (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Escobar recently appeared in a pair of rehab games at High-A Brooklyn and went 2-for-7 with a run, an RBI and a strikeout. He's starting at the hot corner and batting eighth Saturday but will likely have to settle for a short-side platoon or utility role since Brett Baty is expected to remain with the major-league club.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Preparing for possible utility role

    Mets manager Buck Showalter said Escobar (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment Thursday for High-A Brooklyn, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    According to Showalter, Escobar is scheduled to log seven innings at shortstop, a position he's played for only two innings in the majors since the start of the 2019 season. Because Escobar had fallen into a short-side platoon role at third base prior to landing on the injured list Aug. 17 with a strained oblique, the Mets are eager to give him more exposure to other infield positions so he can serve as more of a utility player off the bench once he's activated. The Mets appear content to stick with rookie Brett Baty as their everyday third baseman, even though the youngster has produced a measly .492 OPS in his first eight big-league games.

  • Mets' Eduardo Escobar: Trending toward Friday return

    Mets manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that Escobar (oblique) "is doing really well" and is on track to return from the 10-day injured list Friday against Colorado, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Though he looks like he'll be ready to come off the IL when first eligible next weekend, Escobar's potential role is more uncertain. Before succumbing to the oblique injury, the righty-hitting Escobar had already fallen into a short-side platoon role at third base behind the lefty-hitting Luis Guillorme (groin), who was placed on the IL shortly before Escobar. Since Escobar joined Guillorme on the shelf, top prospect Brett Baty was called up from Triple-A Syracuse and has collected three hits in 17 at-bats while taking over as the Mets' everyday option at the hot corner. Like Guillorme, Baty bats from the left side of the plate, so Escobar could again find himself in the short side of a platoon if the Mets choose not to demote the rookie to Triple-A.
