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.

Edwin Encarnacion out on Wednesday

Edwin Encarnacion (oblique) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion has been out since suffering a strained oblique Sept. 12. Encarnacion has been pushing to return for Wednesday's series finale at Tampa Bay, but there's no good reason for the American League East champions to rush his recovery and Friday looks like more realistic the slugger.

Fantasy Impact
