They are pretty similar. I like Escobar as he is younger and his home field is better.

I have Escobar in a couple leagues and I would lean towards taking Contreras if he were offered to me in exchange.

Well they faced each other tonight and had a nice little duel going through 5.

Escobar didn't return in the 6th, however, due to what Yahoo called a blood blister on his middle finger.

I have both of them, but if I had to choose one I'd take Escobar for his upside

After having done a pretty extensive study on most pitchers that have more than 2 starts I would highly recommend keeping Escobar.

Contreras is really getting lucky and balls put in play aren't dropping for hits. On the other hand, Escobar has been rather unlucky in that his hit rate is higher than the league average.

I guess what I'm saying is if they feel like a toss-up now your mind will change in about two months and unless Escobar goes down with injury (and that's not something to dismiss entirely) you're going to make out fine keeping him.

Contreras for me and it's not even close. Escobar is a big fan of the DL. Contreras is a big fan of the best team in baseball.
