[4/26/2017] Edwin Escobar tosses a bullpen session

Edwin Escobar is currently at Ni-gun. He was scratched from a start against Rakuten on April 14 because of tightness in his right hamstring. He threw forty-four pitches in the bullpen on April 25 and felt good (no pain). It was his first session since his injury. He might be ready to pitch in a rehab game in early May.
