D-backs sign Escobar to 3-year, $21 million contract

PHOENIX (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks have signed infielder Eduardo Escobar to a three-year, $21 million contract.

Arizona acquired the switch-hitting Escobar from Minnesota on July 27 for three minor league prospects. Between the two teams, the 29-year-old infielder set career highs in home runs (23), doubles (48), walks (52), runs (75), games (151), hits (154) and total bases (277).

He started 144 games, 124 of them at third base, leaving open the question of what will happen when left-handed third baseman Jake Lamb returns from injury.
