    View Draft Report
    Escobedo hit .316 while playing impressive defense in center field as a San Diego State sophomore to jump on scouts’ radars, but he slumped at the plate as a junior and lost a bit of helium. He finished with the lowest batting average and slugging percentage among San Diego State regulars with a .255/.350/.364 slash line. Escobedo is a natural center fielder with the arm, speed and instincts to stay at the position. He gets in trouble when his lefthanded swing gets too steep, but he has enough bat speed evaluators think he could be an effective hitter with a swing change. Escobedo gets high marks for his makeup. He is considered a potential backup outfielder in the majors with his lefthanded bat and ability to play center field.
