Drafted in the 15th round (464th overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2012
Escobar has a sturdy, 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame and his calling card is his defense behind the plate. He receives and blocks well. His pure arm strength is just average, but he has a really quick transfer that allows it to play up. Escobar needs to work on his pitch calling, but unfortunately that's true of most college catchers these days. He has a quiet setup and a simple hitting mechanics, but his swing can get long at times. Escobar hit just .284/.371/.467, though with 14 doubles. Escobar did well with wood last summer in the Northwoods League, batting .345/.433/.533 with 16 doubles and seven home runs over 197 at-bats. Escobar was a 41st-round pick by the Astros out of Chatsworth (Calif.) High in 2009, where he was teammates with Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas two years prior.
