Encarnacion was added to the Marlins' 40-man roster Friday.

Encarnacion's addition to the 40-man roster will protect him from the Rule 5 draft. He was on the team's 60-man roster during the abbreviated 2020 season, and he had a .756 OPS with 16 home runs between the Low-A and High-A clubs in 2019. However, he'll need to work on his discipline at the plate going forward, as he struck out at a 25.3 percent clip in 2019.
