Eduardo Escobar, 4 others reach deals with Minnesota Twins


MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins have agreed to a $4.85 million, one-year deal with infielder Eduardo Escobar, avoiding arbitration.

The Twins also reached one-year agreements with infielder Ehire Adrianza ($1 million), outfielder Robbie Grossman ($2 million) and right-handers Trevor May ($650,000) and Ryan Pressly ($1.6 million).

Right-hander Kyle Gibson is the lone Minnesota player still eligible for arbitration. He’s asking for $4.55 million, and the team is offering $4.2 million.

Escobar started last year in a utility role and wound up providing the Twins a steady bat and glove when circumstances forced him into an everyday spot in the lineup. After taking over at third base for the final six weeks when Miguel Sano was injured, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Escobar finished with a career-high 21 home runs.
