A lot can change in the next four years.
Escobar could blossom into a .270 (And basically be Elvis Andrus, and a prime extension candidate - btw, this is what I think is probably going to happen).
Or he could continue to be a .250 hitter and they could have a good option behind him in the system by the time his team control expires.
