Rays Injury Update: Yunel Escobar has no structural damage in knee

By on 9/28/2014 06:30:00 AM

The Tampa Bay Rays won their 77th game of the year on Saturday by shutting out the Indians by the score of 2-0. Wil Myers lead the Rays with two hits in four at bats with an RBI. Four Rays' pitchers scattered five hits and struck out 11 in the win. On the injury front, Yunel Escobar, who is finished for the season with a knee injury, had an MRI which revealed no structural damage.

Our own Darius Austin reported on September 24 that Escobar was likely done for the season after he sprained his left knee while trying to avoid Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez during a play at the plate in the third inning of the previous night's game.

Marc Topkin, who covers the Rays for the Tampa Bay Times, tweeted the following update on Escobar.
Escobar, in his eighth Major League season, finished the season with a .258 average, seven home runs and 39 RBI. The veteran has played for the Braves, Blue Jays and Rays and has a career batting average of .276 with 69 home runs and 393 RBI.
