Encarnacion was part of a mid-game offensive explosion that included five home runs. The White Sox have a dangerous number of bats in the middle of the order with Encarnacion nestled into the cleanup spot behind Jose Abreu and ahead of Eloy Jimenez.

The offense has produced 10 extra-base hits, six home runs and 15 runs in 18 innings so far this season.
Encarnacion confirmed that the lower back and hip injuries that cost him time in spring training no longer bother him, David Venn of MLB.com reports.
Encarnacion, who took his first live batting practice of summer camp earlier this week, said he feels no limitations as he prepares for the 2020 season. "The pause was good for me, because I got ready and recovered from the injury in my lower back," Encarnacion said on a Zoom call this week. "I feel 100 percent [ready] to compete, and I thank God for that." The 37-year-old, who homered during Thursday's intrasquad game, has been one of the most consistent power hitters over the last decade and has eight straight seasons of 30 or more home runs.
Encarnacion (hip) said he's ready to begin training whenever MLB starts a second spring training, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Once MLB gives the green light, Encarnacion said he's ready to hit the facility to begin a ramp-up to an abbreviated season. Encarnacion estimated that he'd need about three weeks' worth of at-bats in a second spring training. The 37-year-old is expected to serve as the White Sox's primary designated hitter.

Encarnacion is expected to resume swinging Friday. While the fact that he's expected to play on Opening Day is certainly encouraging, this is now his second minor injury of camp, as he missed time with a stiff back in late February and early March.
