Edwin Encarnacion returned to the lineup for the first time since July 5 and went 0-for-4 with one strikeout against the White Sox on Friday.
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
Miguel Castro will open the season in the majors.
Castro flew under the radar in the minors last season, but is making the rare jump from A-Ball to the majors. This is thanks to his (likely) temporary move to the bullpen for the Spring, which enabled his stuff to tick up a bit in shorter outings. He's likely next in line to receive saves should Brett Cecil fail, and the 20-year old is worth keeping an eye on. Analysis: Ben Diamond
