|Edwin Encarnacion hits 18th home run|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(6/11/13) Blue Jays designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion hit his 18th home run Tuesday night during an extra-inning win at Chicago. Encarnacion hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning off starter Jose Quintana.
The slugger went 2 for 4 in the game with two RBI. He walked and is batting .266.
Encarnacion has hit in eight straight games and has four homers over his last 10 games with eight RBI over that span. He's currently in the top three in the American League in both homers and RBI (53).
|Edwin Encarnacion's value way up with 3B eligibility|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/6/13) After playing his fifth game of the season at third base Wednesday, Blue Jays infielder Edwin Encarnacion is eligible at the position in most leagues, giving him a huge boost in Fantasy value. The player formerly known as "E5" because of his follies at the hot corner (as is tradition, he has already committed two errors there in this short run) has hit .273 with three home runs and a 1.042 OPS in the last five games.
Although first base is deep in Fantasy, third base is riddled with underperformers (Mike Moustakas, Will Middlebrooks, Chase Headley) and was shallower to begin with. So being able to move Encarnacion to third base for the rest of the season could allow a team to pick up a higher-end first baseman in his place, while ditching an underperformer.
With Brett Lawrie expected back at some point, and Encarnacion not exactly a stalwart defender, it remains to be seen if he will get the 20 games necessary to carry eligibility over for next year, which would make him a dynasty league target. For now, though, give Encarnacion a bump in value, and consider him in trades if you need third-base help.
|Edwin Encarnacion blasts 17th home run|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(6/5/13) Blue Jays third baseman Edwin Encarnacion hit his 17th home run Tuesday during a 2-1 loss at San Francisco.
Encarnacion's solo homer in the first inning off starter Tim Lincecum was all the hurler would allow for the Giants against Toronto. Encarnacion went 1 for 4 and is batting .264.
The 30-year-old has 17 homers and 48 RBI as he's homered in back-to-back games and in four of his last eight contests.
|Edwin Encarnacion hits 15th homer|
|by Jeff Tobin | CBSSports.com|
(6/1/13) Edwin Encarnacion hit his 15th home run Friday night, but the Blue Jays lost 4-3 to the Padres in 17 innings. He was 2 for 6 with a run scored and his 46th RBI.
Encarnacion has a six-game hitting streak and has hit safely in 15 of his last 17 games. He has a .361 average, five home runs and 21 RBI during that stretch.
He's hitting .266 on the season with 24 walks and 33 strikeouts.
|Edwin Encarnacion gets start at third|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/31/13) With Brett Lawrie on the disabled list and the Blue Jays playing in a National League park Friday, Edwin Encarnacion received his first start at third base against the Padres.
Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told MLB.com it's a short-term move, and once the team is at full strength and has the designated hitter available, Encarnacion will go back across the diamond to his usual place at first base.
|Edwin Encarnacion finally had the breakout Fantasy owners had been waiting for in 2012, as he became an elite producer. He batted .295 with 23 home runs and 58 RBI in the first half and continued his power surge after the All-Star break. Encarnacion would end up setting career marks with 42 homers, 110 RBI and a .557 slugging percentage. Oh, and throw in 13 stolen bases for good measure. He finished fourth in the majors in home runs and tied for fifth in RBI. At age 29, Encarnacion could just be scratching the surface of his power potential and with the offseason moves the Blue Jays made, he should have plenty of opportunities to drive in runs in 2013. Plan on targeting Encarnacion in the first few rounds on Draft Day as a solid source of power. (Updated 12/12/12)|
