The Rockies have signed 31-year old righty swinging outfielder Alex Escobar to a minor league deal. He last played in the majors in 2006 with the Nationals. He played in 33 games that season for the Nationals and he was 31 for 87 (.356 avg, .959 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 4 homers, 18 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Escobar has now played in 125 games in his major league career and he is 100 for 388 (.258 avg, .743 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 13 homers, 52 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. Escobar was once one of the brightest prospects in all of baseball but injuries really hurt his development. Maybe he can find himself with the Rockies as it never hurts to give a guy like him a chance on a minor league deal.
