      Blue Jays' Edwin Encarnacion: Will return to Blue Jays in 2016

      Encarnacion's club optioned was picked up by the Blue Jays Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Encarnacion was excellent once again this season, mashing 39 home runs and 111 RBI while putting together a solid .277/.372/.557 slash line, so it comes as no surprise that he will rejoin the Blue Jays in 2016. He should command early-round consideration from fantasy owners heading into re-draft leagues next season.

      Blue Jays' Edwin Encarnacion launches 36th homer in win Monday

      Blue Jays designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion went 1 for 3 with a solo homer in Monday's 4-3 victory over the Orioles. Encarnacion's blast leading off the second inning against Chris Tillman traveled 402 feet, and was his sixth in the last 15 contests. The veteran masher's ISO is now a robust .271 on the season, a remarkable metric that he complements with an equally impressive .544 slugging percentage. The prolific slugger's 36 homers match his 2013 total for the second highest of his career, and he retains an outside chance of matching or exceeding his career high of 110 RBI, a mark he established in 2012.
