Quotes

"He knows the weight that his presence carries in our lineup, and how much we need him to get going," Yost said. "so that makes it a little more difficult for him. because he’s struggling, but he’s working his tail off to get it back."
"He’s feeling much better," Yost said. "just getting back in the swing of things."
"He’s pressing a little bit," Yost said. "but not nearly as much as he did last year. he’s going to be ok. and that’s just signs of maturity."
"It’s the third game," Yost said. "i don’t want to hear about it. for me, escobar does things on the field that help you win ballgames, really important things, things that your average shortstop can’t do. he turns those relay throws with the best of them, like we saw yesterday, and he has done that time and time again."
