Indians' Edwin Encarnacion: Will serve as primary DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Terry Francona says Encarnacion will serve as the primary designated hitter this season, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Carlos Santana, the second part of the power duo, will be the primary first baseman. Francona says he will work to find the best days to flip the two sluggers so they can each remain in the lineup on an everyday basis. Encarnacion posted slightly better stats as a first baseman last season, but should be an offensive force no matter the position. Nonetheless, his value may be limited in leagues with no DH spots.

Indians' Edwin Encarnacion: Delivers for new team in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion, in his spring debut, went 2-for-2 and drove in a run Saturday against the Reds.

It didn't take long for Encarnacion to look comfortable in an Indians uniform. Cleveland's prize off-season acquisition delivered the team's first run of the spring season with a first-inning RBI single to left field. Encarnacion will serve as the new cleanup hitter for the Tribe's potent lineup. He manned first base on Saturday, but he will also see time as the club's designated hitter this season.

Indians' Edwin Encarnacion: 1B/DH plans still unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians manager Terry Francona said that he isn't sure whether Encarnacion or Carlos Santana will act as the primary first baseman in 2017, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Regardless of where he plays, Encarnacion will be a staple of Cleveland's lineup thanks to his hitting prowess. However, his primary position in 2017 could impact his value moving forward, as being the primary DH could limit his value in leagues that don't have a convenient spot to place designated hitters on the active roster. His power is undeniable and his patience at the plate is extremely commendable, but it would be a boon to Encarnacion's value moving forward if he can amass enough innings at first base to maintain eligibility at that position for the years to come.

Indians' Edwin Encarnacion: Joins Indians on three-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Encarnacion agreed to a three-year, $65 million contract with the Indians on Thursday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

The deal includes a team option for a fourth year. Encarnacion will presumably replace Mike Napoli at first base for the American League champs and become the primary run-producing force in the heart of the batting order. He hit .263/.357/529 with 42 homers and 127 RBI in his final year with Toronto, earning his third All-Star selection. As he enters his age-34 season, Encarnacion continues to walk at an elite clip and his hard-contact rate has held steady, so there's little reason to expect a dramatic decline in production despite the move to a more pitcher-friendly home park.

Edwin Encarnacion: Remains unsigned as 2017 nears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays front office has not considered making a one-year contract offer to Encarnacion, Steve Rick Westhead of TSN reports.

Encarnacion appears to have overestimated his value on the free-agent market. The slugger has yet to find a team willing to give him the expensive multi-year deal he's seeking. Cleveland and Texas have recently been linked to the Encarnacion sweepstakes, and he continues to (surprisingly) remain in contact with Toronto. In his eighth season as a Blue Jay, Encarnacion posted a .263 average with 42 homers and 127 RBI over 160 games in 2016.
