Edwin Encarnacion struggles again Thursday

After battling an ankle injury, the Indians got Edwin Encarnacion back in the lineup, but he has produced just one hit in twelve tries across three games. He is now batting just .236 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion's batting average may be lackluster, but he is still on pace for 40 homers and 100 RBI, so fantasy owners can live with that. It will be worth watching, however, to see if this ankle injury lingers and sends him to the DL before long.

Edwin Encarnacion (ankle) remains out of lineup

Edwin Encarnacion is out of Cleveland's lineup for the second straight day on Sunday versus the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

The 35-year-old DH is dealing with a minor ankle injury. Michael Brantley draws the start at DH in his place with Melky Cabrera playing left field. Encarnacion is hitting .244 with 16 homers and 40 RBI this year.

Fantasy Impact

Edwin Encarnacion takes Jose Berrios deep

Edwin Encarnacion was 2-for-4 in Friday’s game against the Twins, hitting a two-run homer off Jose Berrios, his 14th of the year. Unfortunately, it was not enough, as the Tribe lost 7-4.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion is starting to really get going, as his average has climbed up to .240, and his OPS up to .800. Owners who were patient with him are being gradually rewarded - it looks like the window to buy low on him has closed.

Edwin Encarnacion goes yard again Wednesday

Edwin Encarnacion was 2-for-3 in the Indians' afternoon game against the White Sox Wednesday, belting a solo homer off of Chris Volstad. He drove in a run off of a single in the frame before, and also walked once. The Tribe would go on to win 9-1.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion is absolutely mashing right now, and his slash line is up to .235/.309/.476. It may not sound like much, but he was hitting around the Mendoza line not long ago. If he can continue to walk more and strike out less, fantasy owners will be rewarded, and then some, for hanging onto the slow-starting DH.
