Took awhile, but it looks like he sorted out his mechanics. Still not sure he's proven worthy of a long-term deal, but that could change in the next few months.

I wouldn't trust him. This is his contract year after all.

To (Ross) Grimsley, who's been a Minor League pitching coach for San Francisco since 1999, the hurler's polish at such a young age is reminiscent of another youngster he coached. "He's way ahead of schedule, from what I've seen," Grimsley said. "I know we had [Madison] Bumgarner here several years ago and I can kind of compare them. He's like a mini-Bumgarner to me.

On the polished end, it's Escobar's strong fastball command that's made his initial success at Double-A possible. "He's a guy that has come in throwing. Velocity-wise, he's in the low- to mid-90s at times, but the big thing is he keeps the ball down," Grimsley said. "At that velocity with some movement, he keeps the ball at the knees. When he does go up, he gets swings and misses. They'll chase balls out of the zone. He's just been fantastic commanding his fastball."

"There are some little odds and ends, things he can do to make him even better and more consistent, which would be fantastic," Grimsley said. "His delivery is good, but it could be better. That will affect his changeup and his breaking ball, help those more. Grimsley is confident those tweaks will be made with time and projects Escobar to become an "outstanding big league pitcher," in large part because he couples his athleticism and ability with a quality work ethic.

"Just talking to him and having him here and seeing how his work ethic is and how he goes about stuff, he goes about it as a veteran guy," Grimsley said. "He's very consistent about his [side sessions], works hard off the field in his running program and with the weights. "He doesn't say anything. He goes out and does what he's supposed to do. He watches the game, tries to learn. He does everything you would want a player and a pitcher to do."

so when could i buy his jersey?

Him and Crick should be a nice duo and rank our farm system higher.

Martin Agosta seems to be under the radar right now. Hes been tearing up A ball this year.

Absolutely, Agosta has probably been the most dominant pitcher in the system this year not named Kyle Crick.

He wont ever be an elite prospect, mainly because he sits low 90's, but I think hes turning out to alot better than we anticipated. Local kid too.
