Player Notes
Rays manager Joe Maddon said Monday that Yunel Escobar won't be traded.

Advice: Escobar was reportedly claimed off revocable waivers by the Athletics over the weekend, but the Rays have evidently pulled him back. That would make him ineligible to be traded for the rest of the season. This was the expectation all along, but it's now official.

Yunel Escobar is in Monday's lineup against the Orioles.

Advice: The Athletics have reportedly claimed Escobar off revocable waivers, but the Rays are considered unlikely to deal him. The 31-year-old is under contract through 2016 at reasonable terms and the Rays hold an affordable club option on him for 2017.

According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays are unlikely to trade Yunel Escobar to the A's.

Advice: Oakland claimed Escobar off revocable waivers this weekend and would probably like to officially acquire the 31-year-old shortstop given that Jed Lowrie has a fractured index finger, but the Rays don't seem inclined to let him go. Escobar is under contract through 2016 with a club option for 2017 and the Rays don't have anybody ready to plug in right now at short. Nick Franklin, acquired in the David Price trade, is expected to finish out the season at Triple-A Durham. He has been playing primarily at second base there anyway.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Athletics have claimed Yunel Escobar on revocable waivers.

Advice: They have until Tuesday afternoon to work out a trade. With Jed Lowrie's (finger) status for the rest of the season up in the air and Lowrie also a free agent after the year, it's possible a deal could get done. The A's have also been connected to Escobar in the past. He's under contract for $5 million in 2015 and $7 million in 2016, with a $7 million club option for 2017.
