Edwin Encarnacion Traded to the New York Yankees

Encarnacion Traded to Yankees

Edwin Encarnacion has reportedly been traded to the New York Yankees according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Minor League prospect Juan Then is reportedly who the Mariners will receive. Encarnacion is also owed $15 million, which will supposedly be split between the two clubs.

Encarnacion, 36, just hit his 400 career home run, and will be able to mash some more in the Bronx. He is also leading the AL in long balls with 21. He will most likely DH, as the Yankees just want to see him “walk the parrot” as much as he can.

The Mariners haven’t been playing as well as they’d like, as they are sitting at 30-43 at the time of the trade. They received Juan Then, who will already be pretty high up on their top prospects list. Seattle is also saving money as they will be splitting what they owe Encarnacion with the Yankees.

This addition will help the Yankees in their tight AL East race with the Rays, not to mention the Red Sox can get hot at any time. With the injured Yankees returning soon, it will be fun to see how much power this new lineup will produce.
