Edwin Encarnacion (wrist) yet to resume baseball activities

Randy Miller of NJ.com writes that Yankee slugger Edwin Encarnacion (wrist) has yet to resume baseball activities.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion has not progressed as quickly as he originally hoped after getting hit by a pitch and fracturing his wrist a couple of weeks ago. He reportedly feels better but at this point the 36-year-old might not return until mid-September. Fantasy owners can probably drop him if they have a roster crunch with IL slots.

Edwin Encarnacion lands on injured list with right wrist fracture

Yankees first baseman/designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a right wrist fracture, according to beat reporter Bryan Hoch on Twitter. Hoch adds that "Encarnacion will remain in New York during the upcoming road trip and will be re-evaluated by doctors in the next seven to 10 days."

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion was hit on the right hand by a pitch in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, but X-rays were reportedly negative. A CT scan later showed the wrist fracture. More information should become available over the next week or so, but fantasy owners should be prepared to be without the right-handed slugger for at least the next few weeks, if not longer.
