Latest Update Correction: Edwin Encarnacion is in the Blue Jays starting lineup on Wednesday. Wed Aug, 27, 03:43 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 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
The double was of the game-tying variety, and it was hit off Red Sox closer Koji Uehara. Encarnacion hasn't been as productive with the stick since returning from the disabled list, but regardless, he holds and impressive .268/.357/.566 with 27 home runs in 412 PA. He'll look to finish the season strong and record his third consecutive 30+ home run season. This will be his last season of third base eligibility, enjoy it. Analyst: Spencer Silva
See that? It only took three games for Encarnacion to get back on-track. We're hoping, of course. One home run does not a come back make, but it has to start somewhere, right? The important thing is that he's back and will be a staple of the lineup once again. Not much else we can say about him at this time.Analyst: Howard Bender
Despite being a non-factor on Friday night, fantasy owners have to be pleased that they will once again have one of the top power producers in all of fantasy back in their starting lineups moving forward. Despite missing over a month of action, Encarnacion is sitting on 26 home runs and 76 RBI, and could find himself pushing towards his third consecutive 30-plus home runs and 100-plus RBI season if he can have another great run like we saw earlier in the year.Analyst: Matthew Beck
