Edwin Encarnacion signs one-year deal with White Sox

Multiple outlets have reported that Edwin Encarnacion and the White Sox have agreed to a one-year, $12 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

There is also a 2021 club option that is worth and additional $12 million. Encarnacion has been rumored to land in Chicago for a little bit now and the White Sox have officially acquired the power-hitting slugger. In 109 games last year between the Mariners and Yankees, Encarnacion hit .244 with 34 homers and an .875 OPS. He should slide right into the middle of Chicago's lineup.

Edwin Encarnacion could be an option for Blue Jays' first base job

Ben Nicholson-Smith of SportsNet reports the Blue Jays are considering Edwin Encarnacion and Justin Smoak for their first base opening.

Fantasy Impact

Both players have obviously spent time in Toronto during their careers. Encarnacion is the more high-profile name here, however. The 36-year-old swatted 34 homers and posted an .875 OPS in 2019.

Edwin Encarnacion has 2020 optioned declined by Yankees

The Yankees did not exercise the $20 million 2020 option on Edwin Encarnacion.

Fantasy Impact

He'll end up with a $5 million buyout instead. Encarnacion hit .244 with 34 homers and an .875 OPS this season and will enter free agency at the age of 36. The market has not been kind to one-dimensional sluggers in recent years, so we'll see how many suitors line up for EE's services.

Edwin Encarnacion not expected to play on Sunday

Manager Aaron Boone said it's unlikely Edwin Encarnacion (oblique) will play Sunday against the Rangers, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Fantasy Impact

Boone previously said he expected the veteran slugger to return Friday and play all three games in Texas, but the team is being cautious for the final series of the regular season. Expect the veteran slugger back for the playoffs which unfortunately does not help fantasy owners.

Edwin Encarnacion expected to be in the lineup on Friday

Edwin Encarnacion (oblique) is expected to start Friday and play all three games this weekend against the Rangers, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion went down with the left oblique strain Sept. 12 and is set to make his return to the lineup after being sidelined for two weeks. He should play a couple of games over the weekend and fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.
