Edwin Encarnacion told he will see most of his playing time at 1B
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/15) Blue Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion said Thursday as he arrived for spring training that he is ready for whatever role the team has in store for him in 2015. The original plan was for Encarnacion to be the team's primary DH, but it now appears most of his playing time will come at first base.
"They told me I'm going to be playing more first base," Encarnacion said, per MLB.com. "I've worked hard this offseason [because] I knew I'm going to get more time at first. But I'm ready for whatever they need me, if they need more at first base, or if they need me at DH, I'm ready."
Encarnacion was plagued by a quad injury in the second half of the 2014 season. He put a lot of work in this offseason to help improve his durability, and he hopes the added effort will pay off.
"I worked a lot on my back and my stomach because I know have to get it stronger to get my back right," Encarnacion said. "And working a lot with my leg. Right now I'm 230 [pounds], that's where I want to be, under 230, that's when I feel good and I can be away from the injuries."
Blue Jays planning days off for Edwin Encarnacion in 2015
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/21/15) The Blue Jays are expecting to utilize Edwin Encarnacion as a designated hitter in 2015 instead of full-time at first base, manager John Gibbons said Friday. Gibbons wants to prevent Encarnacion from suffering injuries as much as possible this season, according to the Toronto Sun.
"We'll be looking to give Encarnacion time off anyway to prevent a recurrence of the back problems that he had last season," said Gibbons. "It’s important to nip that in the bud."
If catcher Dioner Navarro is not traded, it is likely that Encarnacion will play some first so that Navarro can DH and newly signed Russell Martin can catch.
Edwin Encarnacion homers, drives in four runs Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/23/14) Blue Jays designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion went 2 for 3 with a walk, a home run and four RBI in his team's 10-2 victory over the Mariners Tuesday.
Encarnacion drove home a run with a single in the first inning and picked up a second RBI with a bases-loaded walk during a seven-run fifth inning. He then capped his night with a two-run home run in the sixth. Encarnacion has hit .272/.359/.561 with 34 home runs and 97 RBI in 460 at-bats.
Edwin Encarncion has mild back inflammation, starts Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/20/14) A precautionary MRI on the injured back of Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion revealed that he is dealing with minor inflammation, Sportsnet reports.
Encarnacion slugged his 33rd home run of the season Friday and is back in the starting lineup Saturday, so the minor injury hasn't cost him playing time. He has hit .262/.350/.552 with 33 home runs and 89 RBI in 446 at-bats.
|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.
