|Edwin Encarnacion coming back Friday |

(8/15/14) Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion will be activated from the disabled list in time for Friday's game against the White Sox, reports Sportsnet.CA.
Encarnacion has been out since July 5 due to a quad injury, but has been playing in Triple-A on a rehab assignment in recent days. An officially move has yet to be announced to bring Encarnacion off the DL.
|Edwin Encarnacion expected to return Friday |

(8/14/14) Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion is expected to return to action Friday, according to the National Post.
Encarnacion has been sidelined since July 5 due to a quad injury. Over 328 at-bats, he's hit .277/.368/.591.
|Edwin Encarnacion slugs grand slam in Triple-A debut |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/12/14) Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion moved his rehab to Triple-A Buffalo Tuesday, going 1 for 4 with a grand slam while serving as the team's designated hitter.
Encarnacion is scheduled to play first base Wednesday for the first time since suffering a quad injury in early July. If things go well Wednesday, he could make his return to the Blue Jays lineup this weekend.
|Edwin Encarnacion moving rehab to Triple-A |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/11/14) Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion was removed from his rehab game with Class A Dunedin after one at-bat because of a rain delay and poor field conditions, Sportsnet.ca reports.
He will likely move his rehab to Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday and could be back from the disabled list as early as Friday, according to MLB.com.
|Edwin Encarnacion followed up his breakout 2012 campaign with a solid 2013 -- 36 home runs, 104 RBI and a .272 average. What prospective owners have to worry about, however, is the wrist surgery Encarnacion underwent at the end of the season. He's on track to return in time for the start of the 2014 campaign, but "return" and "full strength" are two different things. Encarnacion could still be relatively weak for the earlier part of the season, so his power and average could take noticeable dips. While he's still a good bet for 30 home runs (assuming he starts the season on time without complications), it might be wise to pass on Encarnacion in drafts and go after him in a buy-low trade after the first month. He should still finish among the top 7-10 first basemen.
