2013 Escalona enjoyed his second straight strong season at Colorado Springs but didn't fare as well in multiple stints with the big club. Demoted to Triple-A in May after seven appearances, the right-hander from Venezuela returned in August and was hammered in two more outings before being shut down for a month with right elbow inflammation and an 11.88 ERA. Escalona, who backs a mid-90s fastball with a hard slider, pitched much better after coming off the DL in September. Health-permitting, he should have value in middle relief.
2012 After a nightmarish 2010, Edgmer Escalona improved his control in a return stint at Triple-A and was effective in a brief trial with the big club. Opponents are 1-for-26 against him away from Coors Field.
2011 Things got ugly at Triple-A Colorado Springs for Venezuelan righty reliever Escalona. Despite an encouraging increase in his strikeout rate, his high strikes often turned into either home runs or walks given better batters and thinner air. He still got a cup of coffee in The Show in September, but he’ll have to prove he can keep the ball both in the zone and then the park if he wants a return engagement.
2010 Not to be mistaken for a minor Saxon king from long before the battle of Hastings, Venezuelan Edgmer Escalona gets by with high strikes, but might find the going harder at altitude against more advanced competition.
