Kelvim Escobar's Winter League Debut Delayed; Should Pitch Tomorrow

Per this Tweet from Efrain Zavarce:

K. Escobar no lanzó hoy por la dominante salida de J. Simontacchi (retiró a los últimos 17 que enfrentó). Quedará prevenido para mañana.

In English: Escobar didn't throw today because of a dominant outing by Jason Simontacchi. Simontacchi actually retired the final17 batters he faced. Instead, Escobar will remain prepared to pitch in tomorrow's game, presumably as a reliever. So, another day of wait, but at least we now know that managers in winter leagues buy into the hot hand theory too. I cannot guarantee dropping that last sentence in casual conversation will do much for your social standing.
