2010 Rockies Player Review: Edgmer Escalona

After struggling in his first year in AAA, Venezuelan reliever Edgmer Escalona got his big league call up in September and appeared in five games.  His most memorable came on September 14 against the San Diego Padres at Coors Field.  After a double, he intentionally walked Adrian Gonzalez and struck out Ryan Ludwick.  Chase Headley then loaded the bases on an "infield hit" after Escalona failed to cover first base on a ground ball to Todd Helton.  That led to what became the game winning run.

There isn't much more to say on Escalona's cup of coffee in 2010.  Truthfully, I'm reviewing him today because I don't have time to write a longer one.  He had a decent unintentional walk rate, struck out a couple and flashed a few pitches that were enough to intrigue Rockies' fans.

Grade:  D.  That loss was pretty damaging.


2011

Escalona is sure to use one of his two remaining options to start next season in the AAA bullpen.  He could certainly use an extra year there.
