Edwin Escobar Goes For PawSox In Title Game

Edwin Escobar
Tonight, the Pawtucket Red Sox will try to become the best AAA team in the nation—as they face off against the PCL champ Omaha Storm Chasers. On the mound for the PawSox will be one of the assets Boston got back for Jake PeavyEdwin Escobar. Only 22, the left-handed Escobar is projected to be a top of the rotation starter down the road, and is ranked #56 among all prospects by Baseball America (#15 in the Red Sox organization). The 6'1" Venezuelan had a 'K-Cup' of coffee with the big club this year—hurling one scoreless inning. But, tonight he will try to prevent the AAA franchise of the Kansas City Royals from nabbing back-to-back titles.
