First baseman/designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion has been traded from the Seattle Mariners to the New York Yankees, according to a report from MLB insider Jeff Passan. (Source: Jeff Passan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: While the move makes sense with the Mariners looking to continue moving towards a full rebuild, the timing is strange since Encarnacion has missed the last three games with a back injury. That injury is supposedly minor, however, and Encarnacion currently leads the American League with 21 home runs. While the Yankees have been winning with a series of replacement players due to a number of injuries, they will have one of the most formidable lineups in baseball once both Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton return from the injured list.

By Kamran Hoda

Marco Gonzales allowed one earned run on seven hits, two walks, and three strikeouts, through seven innings on Friday against Oakland.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzales' win was his seventh of the season. He's picked up a 4.50 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 62 strikeouts through 16 starts this season. He's too inconsistent to trust.

Hunter Strickland successfully completed a 20-pitch bullpen session on Monday as he continues to progress is his recovery from a right lat strain. (Source: MLB.com)

Fantasy Impact: Mariners manager Scott Servais said that Strickland "threw great" and that "his arm feels great" too. Strickland has been on the injured list since March 30, but it sounds like he could return in the next couple weeks. Once he does, Strickland could quickly reenter the closer discussion in Seattle, where a committee has developed in his absence.
