Yunel Escobar is raking for the Los Angeles Angels in 2016

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Monday 1 August 2016 at 9:09 am

33-year old righty swinging Yunel Escobar is hitting really well for the Los Angeles Angels so far this year.  He has played in 94 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 122 of 379 (.322 avg, .781 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 3 homers and 32 RBIs.  Escobar has a team friendly club option for the 2017 season (valued at $7 million dollars), which makes him more valuable trade wise for a team in need of a 3B.  He could get move today or even later this month, as he would likely clear waivers.  That being said, the Angels better get a decent prospect for him, because they could pick up his option and keep him for next year if they don’t get offered one.
