Escassi was born in Málaga, Andalusia. After playing with two other clubs as a youth, including hometown's Málaga CF, he finished his football grooming with Getafe CF, making his senior debuts in 2008 and helping the B-team promote to the third division for the first time ever in his second year.
On 13 April 2010, Escassi made his first-team – and La Liga – debut, replacing veteran Javier Casquero in the dying minutes of a 3–0 home win against Villarreal CF. On 16 December he appeared in the season's UEFA Europa League against BSC Young Boys, with the Madrid side winning 1–0 but being eliminated in the group stage.
For the 2011–12 campaign, both Escassi and teammate Adrián Sardinero were loaned to Hércules CF in the second level. On 10 July 2012 both players moved on a permanent basis, with the former signing for two years.
Escassi scored his first professional goal on 26 August 2012, netting his team's in a 1–2 home loss against fierce rivals Elche CF. On 13 August 2014, after the Valencians' relegation, he signed a two-year deal with fellow league side AD Alcorcón.
On 30 June 2015, Escassi terminated his contract with the Madrid club, and joined UE Llagostera also in the second tier hours later. On 28 June 2016, following their relegation, he signed for CD Numancia.
On 24 October 2017, Escassi was one of two players on target for his team as they defeated top flight side Málaga CF 2–1 in the first leg of the fourth round of the Copa del Rey, in spite of trailing 0–1 in stoppage time.
