Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion out again Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion said his tight left hamstring is getting better, but it is still not good enough for him to return to the starting lineup. He sat out a third straight game Wednesday against the Nationals.

"I just want to make sure, I don't want to lose like 15 games," Encarnacion told MLB.com. "I'd prefer to lose two or three games and come back again. If I feel something can be worse, I'd prefer to lose two or three games."

Encarnacion did make a pinch-hit appearance in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader. However, he remains mired in a 1-for-24 slump in his last seven games. He should see extra time at designated hitter while his hamstring is less than 100 percent, and he'll have the opportunity with Jose Bautista now able to play in right field after a long stretch in a DH-only role.

"That's going to help me, now Jose can play right field and I can be more of a DH until I can get 100 percent and go back to first," Encarnacion said. "When I'm hitting, I don't feel it. I won't be running 100 percent, but I can run 80, so I feel quite good."

(6/2/2015) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said infielder Edwin Encarnacion is out of Tuesday's lineup due to a leg injury, according to SportsNet

Encarnacion did not play in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals and isn't in the lineup for the second game. He's endured a 1-for-24 slump of late, though it's unknown how much this leg injury played a part of that. 

Encarnacion is hitting .216 with 12 home runs this season. 


Blue Jays' Encarnacion, Martin still out for Game 1 of doubleheader


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Before Monday's game was rained out, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons made the decision to sit first baseman Edwin Encarnacion and catcher Russell Martin. Gibbons didn't change his lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader, as both players remained out of the lineup against Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann.

Although, Martin's absence also had to do with the fact knuckleballer R.A. Dickey was on the mound for Toronto since Josh Thole has been his personal catcher for most of the season. Justin Smoak was in the lineup for Encarnacion.

Encarnacion heads into Tuesday's doubleheader mired in a 1-for-24 slump in his last six games. Prior to his slump, he hit .297 with a .615 slugging percentage, five doubles, eight home runs and 24 RBI in his previous 26 games.

Martin has also hit a bit of an offensive wall as of late, as he is batting .176 with no home runs, one double and one RBI in his last 10 games.
