After reading this comment on NFA today, my first reaction: Wat? According to NFA commenter RJS, "Clippers website says Alex Escobar has been released." So I go to ClippersBaseball.com and sure enough, Alex Escobar has been released. Escobar was hitting .257/.318/.387 in his 67 games in AAA this year, so it's not a huge surprise I guess. It does come at a random time, though, as Wily Mo Pena is going to have surgery on his shoulder and will be out for an unspecified amount of time.
Guess that means it's either Mike Daniel, Roger Bernadina or Garrett Guzman in Washington soon. Between Daniel and Guzman, whoever isn't called up to the Majors will probably take Escobar's spot in Columbus.
