Edwin Encarnacion launches two homers

Edwin Encarnacion had a big day at the plate on Tuesday against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday. He went 2-for-4 with two home runs, three runs, and three RBIs. The Indians went on to beat the Reds 8-7.

Fantasy Impact

That was Encarnacion's best game in an Indians uniform as he has been off to a slow start this year. His bat is starting to come around of late and he appears to be rounding into the form that has made him an elite-level fantasy first baseman over the past several seasons. Encarnacion now has nine homers and 20 RBIs on the year. Keep him active for tomorrow's game against Lisalverto Bonilla.

Edwin Encarnacion picks up two hits

Edwin Encarnacion went 2-for-4 on Sunday against the Houston Astros with a double, three runs, and one RBI. The Indians went on to beat Houston 8-6.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion is starting to heat up as he has two homers and six RBIs over the past week. His strikeout rate is still high, but the Indians and his fantasy owners can live with that if he starts producing. A showdown against Scott Feldman awaits him today. Encarnacion has one hit in nine career at-bats against Feldman, with that one hit being a home run.

Edwin Encarnacion hits two-run homer

Edwin Encarnacion went 1-for-4 against the Houston Astros on Friday night with a two-run homer in the fourth inning. The Indians went on to beat Houston 5-3.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion has two homers in his past three games and could be starting to break out of a season-long slump, but his high strikeout rate this season has been concerning. He now has seven homers and 16 RBI on the season. Keep him active for today's matchup against Mike Fiers.

Edwin Encarnacion goes deep Tuesday

Edwin Encarnacion had a big night at the plate for the Indians on Tuesday. He went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBIs. It wasn't enough as the Indians went on to lose to the Rays 6-4.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion continues to struggle in his first season with the Indians. He is now slashing .207/.345/.356 with six homers and 15 RBI. The slugger is a notoriously slow starter, so if you drafted him, stay patient.

Edwin Encarnación hitless in third straight game

Edwin Encarnación finished 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Cleveland's 8-3 win over Minnesota.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnación has been struggling of late going hitless over his 11 at-bats, collecting one hit in his last 14. Despite the low batting average, he's getting on base at a decent clip thanks to a high walk rate. He's still showing nowhere near the power he did in Toronto that culminated with the 42 home runs and 127 RBIs he amassed last year but he's shown enough in his career to mildly expect a turn-around at some point. He'll take a .206/.353/.341, five home runs and 11 RBIs into his next plate appearance.
