Manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Edwin Encarnacion (oblique) is expected to play by the series in Texas next weekend and could possibly play in Tampa Bay before then, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. (Bryan Hoch on Twitter)
The Yankees are in Tampa Bay for two games next week before they head to Texas for a three-game set to wrap up the regular season. It sounds like Encarnacion will be in the lineup for most of those games. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.
