As others have mentioned, this was an excellent rehab outing for Escobar. He'll go to Salt Lake next; because he started the year on the 60-day DL, he won't be eligible to return until June 3 anyway.

Dig these numbers:

Since the beginning of last season, Sean Rodriguez has hit 38 HRs and 102 RBIs in 405 ABs at AAA. 1.042 OPS last season, 1.046 OPS this season. And he walks more than Howard K and plays at least comparable defense.

Yet this guy is as overlooked as Mike Napoli was when he was hitting 30/100 seasons at RAN and ARK.
 
I dunno about overlooked. S-Rod has been a 6-4-2 favorite for some time now, and back before Wood patched the holes in his plate discipline, I favored him for the big callup ahead of Woody. But I'm not surprised to see him doing well.
 
I'm not saying you've overlooked him. I'm saying he's overlooked in general. When you compare his production to that of Dallas McPherson, who received absolutely sopranino-pitched hype in his time, it's a wonder that the chant remains "Wood Wood Wood" with seldom a word tossed to the arguably more complete player.

I'd love to see the Angel middle infield swapped with that of the Bees for four weeks just to see what would happen.
 
I mean, the highest he ever ranked was #7 in the Baseball America Angel prospect lists. Yet he's a middle infielder with plus speed and patience, and significant power.
 
I think the problem has been his power hadn't emerged with any certainty until 2008; prior to last year, his SLG was only once above .500, in 2006, most of which was earned at launching pad Rancho. That locale (reasonably) tempered most people's opinions of his ability. I always liked his eye, but he's added power to his game, and like Woody, his continued tour in the minors is baffling.

Kendrick is looking more and more like he'll spend part of this year figuring things out in Salt Lake (or perhaps spending time on the trainer's table if he's nursing an undisclosed injury). I wouldn't object to an S-Rod callup in that event.
