Edwin Encarnacion scores in win

Edwin Encarnacion went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's win over the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact

EE continues his brutal start to the season with his average now sitting at .149 to go with his .565 OPS. He's a notoriously slow starter, meaning he could be worth buying low, but his peripherals don't paint a pretty picture, and there's the concern that Father Time has finally caught up to him.

Edwin Encarnacion hits solo homer Wednesday

Edwin Encarnacion went 2-for-7 in Wednesday's 16 inning affair against the Twins, hitting a solo shot. He also added a single, but did strike out twice.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion has had a rough go of it so far, but maybe this homer breaks him out of his slump. The 35 year old has a .153 average, four homers, five RBI, and five runs so far in 2018. His numbers stem from a 7.5% walk rate, 28.4% K rate, and a .139 BABIP. The BABIP figures to rise, but Encarnacion needs to cut down on the Ks and increase his walks for him to be successful.

Edwin Encarnacion continues to slump

Edwin Encarnacion went 0-for-4 on Tuesday against the Twins and is now batting .135.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion batted .200 with four home runs last April and .250 with three home runs in April of 2016, so fantasy owners probably expected his poor start. Although there's always a chance that the bottom has completely fallen out, it's more likely that Encarnacion will heat up as the season goes along. Fantasy owners should continue to exercise patience.

Edwin Encarnacion off to a mixed start this season

Edwin Encarnacion is batting just .146 this season (6-for-41) but has managed to hit three home runs.

Fantasy Impact

One of the home runs was of the inside-the-park variety, which is interesting. Three home runs are not a disappointment but the .146 batting average is hard to stomach for fantasy owners. The Indians as a team have the worst offense in baseball so far and the entire team will need to turn it around soon.

Edwin Encarnacion 2-for-4 in loss

Edwin Encarnacion went 2-for-4 Saturday against the Royals, both singles. He also struck out once in the 1-0 loss.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion has had a slow start to 2018, with the exception of his inside-the-park homer. He has accumulated a .222 average with three homers and four RBI in the early going. Look for that average to heat up as the weather does.
