Escobar Named AFL Player of the Week

Peoria Javelinas shortstop Yunel Escobar (ATL) and has been named the Arizona Fall League's player-of-the-week for October 30-November 4.

The Havana, Cuba native hit a robust .625 (10-16) last week to take the Fall League batting lead at .424 (28-66). His week included a grand-slam home run on his 24th birthday last Thursday, November 2. Escobar also ranks fourth with a .457 on-base percentage. He has scored 11 runs and driven in 16 more.

Very nice to see...if he improves his fielding, we may have something!
