Encarnacion went 1-for-5 with a grand slam in Friday's 8-2 win over the Rockies.
Encarnacion delivered one of the biggest hits of the night, leaving the yard with the bases loaded in the third inning to give the Yankees a 4-2 lead. The 36-year-old has now smashed four home runs over his last five contests, and he now sits with 29 homers along with 67 RBI over 88 games in 2019.
Encarnacion went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Rays.
His two-run shot in the eighth inning appeared to have given the Yankees the win, until Travis d'Arnaud hit his third homer of the night off Aroldis Chapman to flip the script. Encarnacion has been struggling so far in pinstripes, but Monday's performance might be a sign the streaky slugger is about to go on a tear.
Encarnacion is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
The Yankees will deploy Luke Voit at designated hitter and DJ LeMahieu at first base in the series finale, closing off Encarnacion's path to the lineup. LeMahieu is still expected to receive the majority of his starts at second and third base moving forward, leaving Encarnacion's playing time relatively secure even as he continues to struggle. Through his first 18 games as a Yankee, Encarnacion is slashing .139/.225/.347 while striking out 28.7 percent of the time.
Encarnacion is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Mets, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
The Yankees are playing in Citi Field against the crosstown rivals, so the designated hitter spot is unavailable. They head to Tampa Bay for a four-game set after this game, so Encarnacion should be back in the mix against the Rays.
Encarnacion is not starting Monday against the Blue Jays.
Encarnacion started seven straight games since heading to New York, though the Yankees' loaded lineup may result in a fair number of days off for the veteran. Luke Voit will be the designated hitter Monday, with DJ LeMahieu starting at first base.
Encarnacion went 1-for-3 with a home run, two walks, two RBI and three runs scored Thursday against the Astros.
Encarnacion popped out in his first plate appearance, only to reach base his next three times up to the dish. He capped off the performance with a two-run shot in the seventh inning to put the Yankees up 10-3. It was his second home run since joining the team June 16, but his 23rd of the season. He's now hitting .238/.355/.535 across 307 plate appearances.
Encarnacion went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 6-3 victory against the Rays on Tuesday.
He has just one hit in two games (1-for-8) with the Yankees, but getting his first long ball with his new team out of the way has to feel nice. This is the type of power the Yankees want to see. With the Mariners and Yankees, Encarnacion is hitting .236 with 22 home runs, 50 RBI and 49 runs in 249 at-bats this season.
Encarnacion (back) is hitting fifth as the designated hitter against the Rays on Monday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
As expected, Encarnacion will make his team debut as the DH after the Yankees acquired him from the Mariners on Saturday. He'll slide into the five spot in the order for this contest, although it remains to be seen where he'll be deployed when Giancarlo Stanton (shoulder) and Aaron Judge (oblique) make their returns to the lineup. The veteran will look to pick up where he left off with the Mariners, as he had slugged eight homers in last 11 games prior to the trade.
Encarnacion (back) will join the Yankees in New York on Monday ahead of their series opener against the Rays, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. Manager Aaron Boone said that Encarnacion would likely act as the Yankees' "primary DH."
The Yankees beefed up their lineup in a major way Saturday when they swung a deal with the Mariners to acquire Encarnacion, who had slugged 21 home runs through 289 plate appearances on the season. Though Giancarlo Stanton (shoulder) is on track to return from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and Aaron Judge (oblique) isn't far behind, Boone appears content to deploy the two as the Yankees' everyday corner outfielders, relegating Brett Gardner to a fourth-outfielder role as a result. Once New York has all its key hitters back to full health, Encarnacion may be forced to settle for a spot in the bottom half of the order, but the overall strength of the lineup from one through nine should translate to plenty of run-scoring and run-producing opportunities for the veteran slugger. Encarnacion had been managing a back issue prior to being traded, but it's believed to be only a day-to-day concern at this point.
Encarnacion (back) was acquired by the Yankees from the Mariners on Saturday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Encarnacion was out of the lineup the last two games as a precaution due to a minor back issue, and it now appears he's already played his last game with Seattle. The veteran slugger has a .241/.356/.531 slash line and his 21 home runs lead the American League. Aaron Judge (oblique) and Giancarlo Stanton (shoulder) are both nearing their returns from the injured list, so it should be interesting to see how playing time is divvied out between first base and designated hitter once they return, especially with Luke Voit also in the mix.
Encarnacion (back) will sit again Saturday against Oakland, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Encarnacion, who has not played since Wednesday, had been on a tear prior to suffering the injury, hitting .250/.377/.818 with eight homers over his last 11 games. Daniel Vogelbach will start at first base in his absence, with Tim Beckham serving as the designated hitter.
Encarnacion isn't in Friday's lineup against the Athletics due to a back injury, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
According to Drayer, Encarnacion is being held out of Friday's clash as a precaution, but his status will be worth keeping an eye on over the weekend. He's expected to be available to pinch hit if needed.
Encarnacion isn't starting Friday's game against Oakland, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Encarnacion is slashing .250/.377/.818 with eight homers and 15 RBI through 11 games in June, but he'll head to the bench for a night off. Daniel Vogelbach draws the start at first base and will bat cleanup in Encarnacion's stead.
Encarnacion went 1-for-3 with two walks and a three-run home run in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to the Twins.
That's now four long balls in the last three games and eight in the last 10 for Encarnacion, who's moved into the AL home-run lead with the power surge. On the season, the veteran slugger's slashing .246/.360/.542 with 21 HR and 49 RBI in 64 contests.
Encarnacion went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Angels.
Encarnacion finished the three-game series with three home runs and now has seven through the Mariners' first nine games of June. Assuming health prevails and Encarnacion isn't dealt to a team where he'll be forced to handle more of a part-time role, it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect him to deliver the third 40-homer campaign of his career, as he's already halfway to that total.
Encarnacion went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's 12-3 loss to the Angels.
The homer was his fifth in his last 10 games and 18th for the year. Encarnacion is hitting .241/.355/.509 with 44 runs scored and 43 RBI in 62 games in his first year with the Mariners.
Encarnacion went 2-for-5 with an RBI single, two walks and two runs in an extra-innings loss to the Astros on Thursday.
Encarnacion's heater at the plate continued with Thursday's multi-hit effort, and he's now reached base safely in all six June contests. The veteran has slugged five extra-base hits (one double, four home runs) in that stretch, leading to an RBI total (eight) that's already more than halfway to what he amassed in all of May (14).
Encarnacion went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer, a walk and another run scored in Wednesday's 14-1 victory over the Astros.
Encarnacion continued to deliver the power for the Mariners, smacking a three-run shot off reliever Brady Rogers in the sixth inning for his 17th long ball of the year. The 36-year-old power hitter has knocked in four homers in the last five games to bring his line up to .241/.350/.505 with 41 RBI and 41 runs.
Encarnacion went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in a loss to the Astros on Monday.
Encarnacion squared up a Corbin Martin offering in the third and sent it 406 feet to center for his 16th homer of the campaign. The veteran slugger, who's likely to serve as a trade chip at some point this season, has opened June in fine fashion. Factoring in Monday's blast, he's 4-for-12 with three home runs and four RBI over the first three games of the new month.
Encarnacion went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Angels.
Encarnacion, who was scratched from Friday's lineup after undergoing a dental procedure, returned to action and provided the lone offense of the game for the Mariners. The veteran slugger was 3-for-28 over his last seven games entering Saturday but still sports an .852 OPS after bringing his season total to 15 home runs.
