Trade Retrospective: How Did the Twins Do in the Eduardo Escobar Trade?

It’s been a little over two years since the Twins traded Eduardo Escobar to the Arizona Diamondbacks for a trio of minor league players. One of those players, Jhoan Duran, is one of the team’s top starting pitching prospect. Escobar was on his way to free agency at season’s end and Minnesota was able to get some value for the infielder. After two years, how have the Twins fared in the Eduardo Escobar trade?
