Eduardo hit his 4th HR tonight. Leads the AFL. He has been getting some continued notice lately.

He could be a valuable trade chip if his bat continues to improve.

Perhaps the Sox keep him and add to their infield depth.

Eduardo would be one of the few prospects I wouldn't mind giving up. Alexei hasn't even reached arbitration years yet and is a steal at his price. Thus EE is going to be blocked for the foreseeable future. He also doesn't profile as well at 3B or 2B, and Morel/Beckham likely have those positions locked up as well.

I think he's a likely trade candidate unless the organization thinks EE is a sure thing, and decides to move Alexei once he starts getting expensive instead. I know it rarely happens, but a prospect for a prospect trade could also be intriguing. One blocked prospect for another.

Would you deal Carlos Quentin and Escobar to St. Louis for Colby Rasmus or is that too high a price? Put it another way, would the Cards have to include a prospect in the deal?

I don't think it's enough. EE isn't a blue chip SS prospect, (at least not yet) and Carlos doesn't have a ton of value. Throw in Mitchell and I think it's close.

I would hate to see the Sox throw in Mitchell. If the Sox deal for Rasmus, I hope they can find a way to keep Mitchell, too.

As do I. But there really isn't much to choose from in regards to the farm system currently.

Mitchell, Eduardo, and Carter will be playing in the AFL Rising Stars game on Saturday. Supposedly the game will be on MLB Network and streamed on MLB.com

Eduardo continues to tear it up.

4-5 today with 2 2B and a 3B

Like what I'm seeing in the boxscores. Granted it's AFL. Starlin Castro did seemingly come out of nowhere in the AFL last year though. However, I'm sure Escobar's talents aren't near the level of Starlin's.

At the very least, he's putting on a show for the Cardinals.

In my best Tim McCarver impression, as good as Eduardo Escobar has been, that's as bad as Jared Mitchell has been.

Looks like that ankle injury and time off really hurt him.

Escobar is 2/5 today with a double and he just hit his fourth triple. Wow.

He now leads the league in HR and tied for the lead in triples.

He has been impressive indeed and the scouting reports are good, but remember this is a hitter's league. The pitching is generally pretty terrible. It will be interesting to see if the Sox decide to have him show the bat is legitimate back in AA or let him start in Charlotte. (Assuming he isn't traded.)

What I like is that he's getting a lot of XBH. He has a 1.099 OPS.
