this name, but in the very near future, it will become another one of
those household names like Ryan Braun, Ben Sheets and C.C Sabathia.
Escobar the twenty-two year old shortstop out of La Sabana, Venezuela
has caught the attention of many major league scouts for milwaukee.
Escobar has just been outstanding, since he arrived in the professional
baseball scene in 2007. When he began his young career in Single-A he
was hitting a solid .325 in 268 AB’s, but in mid-june he got the call
to report to Class- Double A, Huntsville. There he hit a decent .283
average, impresive for a rookie shortstop. But in 2008 he really showed
the scouts what he could do, he spent all of the 08′ season in
Huntsville where he batted a fantastic .328 with 8 homers, and 76
RBI’s. Good right? Well sure Alcidies has a good bat, the stats show
it. But there is something that has attracted scouts to him even more
then his bat. Did i mention hes an even better shortstop?
i have to say is that in a couple years it is very likely Escobar will
be the one getting the walkoff hits, and J.J Hardy will be selling
Penuts to the fans. They Sure Grow Them Good Venezuela dont they?
