Player Notes
Yunel Escobar (knee) remains out of the Angels' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Advice: Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday that Escobar will remain sidelined until at least Friday. If he's not ready by then, he'll likely be facing a backdated trip to the disabled list. Escobar hasn't played since last Thursday due to a bone bruise in his knee. Jefry Marte will continue to fill in at third base.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday that Yunel Escobar (knee) will remain sidelined until at least Friday.

Advice: If he's unable to give it a go at that point, the Angels would have to consider a backdated trip to the disabled list. Jefry Marte is once again filling in at third base in his absence on Tuesday.

An MRI on Yunel Escobar's left knee revealed a bone bruise.

Advice: Escobar suffered the injury on Thursday and hasn't played since. The injury has turned out to be worse than initially expected, although he hasn't been placed on the disabled list yet. However, a move can't be ruled out if he doesn't see improvement in the next day or two.

Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Mets and Giants have expressed interest in Yunel Escobar.

Advice: ESPN's Jerry Crasnick has also reported previously that the Giants are eyeing Escobar. It's unclear whether the Mets' interest in Escobar might be lessened now that they've signed Jose Reyes. The Angels hold a $7 million club option on Escobar for 2017, but Moura hears that the third baseman is likely to be dealt before the trade deadline.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said that Yunel Escobar (knee) is expected to play Saturday.

Advice: Escobar tweaked his knee during Thursday's game and will get a day of rest on Friday. However, it's not expected to be a lingering issue. Consider him day-to-day.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Angels "are listening" on Yunel Escobar and the Giants are "among the teams that have expressed interest."

Advice: It could indicate that the Giants aren't expecting Matt Duffy (Achilles) back anytime soon. It's no surprise that the Angels are willing to move Escobar, as they're already 16 games out of first place and don't seem likely to close that gap. Escobar is making $7 million this season and the Halos have a $7 million option on him for 2017.
