Even in a down year, Encarnacion topped 30 homers for the seventh straight season, a span during which 2014's 98 RBI was the only time he fell short of 100. That bankable power is comforting at his depreciating price, but career worsts in contact (75.7%) and strikeout (22.9%) rate led to his lowest average (.248) since 2010. The durable slugger also missed time with a biceps injury during his age-35 campaign, so don't reach for name recognition. That shouldn't be necessary, as ADPs beyond the top 100 suggest he could fall into your lap.

Edwin Encarnacion reporting to spring training with Mariners

Reports indicate Edwin Encarnacion is reporting to spring training with the Mariners but General Manager Jerry Dipoto still intends to trade the veteran slugger at some point after Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Encarnacion was acquired in a three-team trade back in December and was always pegged for a trade chip, but it appears the Mariners have been unable to find a deal they like. The latest reports suggest Encarnacion could remain in Seattle into the regular season. Encarnacion would be their regular designated hitter in such a scenario, and would likely occupy a prime spot in the batting order.
