Update: Edwin Encarnacion is expected to miss two to four weeks, but that could change based on evaluation in next few days. He is expected to be placed on the disabled list.
Encarnacion strained his quad beating out a double play ball in Saturday's contest in Oakland. He drove in the runner from third (Jose Reyes), but it came at a cost. The All-Star break couldn't come at a more convenient time.ANALYST:
The Raiders could be interested in free agent wide receiver Randall Cobb.
Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie drafted Cobb in his final year as the Packers' Director of Player Personnel. McKenzie apparently wants to reunite Cobb with his former mentor James Jones, who signed with the Raiders last offseason and was the team's most consistent receiver throughout the 2014 season. The question is, would the Raiders be able to convince Cobb to sign with them? They'll likely need to comfortably outbid the next highest bidder to earn rights to his services. If this scenario were to actually come to fruition, Derek Carr would get a nice boost in fantasy value. Analysis: Spencer Silva
