Escalona, who's listed at 6 foot 4, 235 pounds, has made headlines in the past for a few transgressions.
Back in early April, Escalona was involved in a scuffle with Colorado pitcher Juan Nicasio during stretching exercises at Coors Field, and they needed to be separated by teammates. The Rockies were conducting a workout in front of fans.
Escalona was suspended in 2011 for fighting with his manager in the Venezuela Winter League, and again in 2012 for doctoring a baseball with a foreign substance during a game with Triple-A Colorado Springs.
According to reports, Escalona was caught rubbing his fingers on a foreign substance on his left forearm.
OK, so the guy's a bit of a character. Could be fun to cover.
At the very least, if there is one manager who can handle trouble, it's Buck.
