Blue Jays DH Edwin Encarnacion goes deep again in victory
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/24/15) Designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion continued his torrid May, blasting a home run into the second deck Sunday as the Blue Jays rolled to an 8-2 victory over the Mariners.
Encarnacion's fifth-inning shot gave Toronto a 4-1 advantage. The slugger has eight of his 12 home runs in May, including three in his last four games, to move into third place in the American League in homers.
His 32 RBIs are tied for fourth in the AL, and he has driven in at least one run in six of his last 10 contests.

Encarnacion went 2 for 4, walked and scored twice.
With a week left in the month, Encarnacion has eight home runs in the month of May.
Blue Jays still creating a plan to keep Bautista, Encarnacion
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) The Blue Jays want to lock up designated hitter Jose Bautista and first baseman Edwin Encarnacion to long-term extensions, but have yet to come up with a plan, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Both Bautista and Encarnacion are under contract through at least 2015.
Blue Jays' Edwin Encarnacion, Danny Valencia both homer
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) The Blue Jays got a home run each from Edwin Encarnacion and Danny Valencia in their 8-4 win over the Angels on Thursday.
For Encarnacion, that's his 10th home run of the season. Encarnacion's shot was of the three-run variety and occurred in the bottom of the fifth inning. The homer also scored Steve Tolleson and Jose Bautista.
This snapped a two-game hitless streak for Encarnacion. He finished the game 1 for 4 but struck out twice. He now holds a slash line of .231/.315/.455.
Valencia hit his first home run of the season, a solo shot, which happened in the third inning. He finished 1 for 4 and is now hitting .339/.350/.508. Valencia has now recorded a hit in four consecutive games.
|2014 summary: Beginning with his breakout 2012 season, Edwin Encarnacion has been as steady as they come for the Blue Jays, consistently delivering 30-plus homers with the kind of plate discipline that makes him a top-10 hitter on a per-game basis in Head-to-Head points leagues. Just as predictable, though, have been the injuries -- something different every year, often in the second half. Such was the case again in 2014, when he ranked behind just seven players in Head-to-Head points per game while playing in 128 games.|
Playing time status: Encarnacion missed those games because of a strained quadriceps, the latest in a series of who-could-have-predicted-that injuries, which is exactly why you probably shouldn't put too much emphasis on that part of the equation. The injuries are all unrelated, so it's not like he's developed any chronic issues at age 32.
2015 outlook: Encarnacion isn't a sexy name on Draft Day, but he's simply too productive year after year to pass up in the first round, certainly in Head-to-Head points leagues and, with power as scarce as it is these days, probably Rotisserie as well. In a league full of name-chasers, you might be able to nab him in the second round, but it'll take guts to pass him up with your first pick.
