It looks like he is out until Friday
Yunel Escobar, SS, Atlanta Braves Saturday 7/19, 8:58 PM CT
Yunel Escobar could be headed to the DL, as he just can't get over his left shoulder injury. The shortstop will be evaluated by team physician Dr. Xavier Duralde on Sunday, at which time the Braves will determine whether they need to place him on the disabled list, according to MLB.com. "He wants to play, and that's great," GM Frank Wren said. "But at the same time, we don't want him to jeopardize the rest of the season by playing a day or two too early."
Our View: We expect Escobar to land on the DL, as the Braves need to clear a roster spot for Rafael Soriano. He would be eligible to return next Friday.
