Latest Update Edwin Encarnacion went 1-for-4 and belted his 32nd home run of the season in a loss to the Rays on Sunday. Sun Sep, 14, 05:13 PM
Understands his role as a run producer and does it very well. Has good bat speed that generates a solid number of doubles and home runs. Is now a fairly patient hitter. Boasts a good arm and is somewhat versatile afield.
Flaws: : Is fairly streaky in every facet of the game and is also a little injury-prone. Has some holes in his swing at times, which can lead to low batting averages and slumps. Struggles on defense whenever he's at the hot corner.
Encarnacion continues to prove why he was one of the game's best power hitters. He notched home run number 32 on the year today, and fantasy owners are wondering where his total would sit if he hadn't missed all that time on the disabled list. He now has 85 RBIs on the year and fantasy owners should continue starting Encarnacion daily.Analyst: Colby Conway
After a slow start once coming off the disabled list, Encarnacion has been showing off his power lately, with four home runs over his last 13 games. He has 31 home runs on the season, along with 83 RBI's, which is quite impressive considering he missed around a month due to injury.Analyst: Ben Diamond
Encarnacion has now homered in three of his last five games, bringing his season total up to 30 long balls on the season. Despite missing over a month of action, Encarnacion has still been one of the best power hitters in 2014, while slugging .558 with 81 RBI over 396 at-bats. Unless he cools off in the upcoming days, he is a must-start in all formats until further notice. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Encarnacion was not listed in our original lineup for Wednesday, but that has been corrected and he is indeed in the lineup. He is the Blue Jays designated hitter and batting fifth.Analyst: Howard Bender
