White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Homers in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (shoulder) went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored Tuesday against the Tigers.

Encarnacion was in the lineup for the first time in six games after battling a shoulder injury. He grounded out in his first at-bat, but led off the fourth inning with a solo home run, his second long ball of the campaign. Encarnacion has gotten off to a slow start, hitting .206/.250/.382 while striking out 35 percent of the time through 37 plate appearances.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Back in action Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (shoulder) is starting Tuesday against the Tigers.

Encarnacion sat out the past six games with a left shoulder issue, but he'll return to action Tuesday as the designated hitter. Since he was reportedly available as a pinch hitter Monday, he should be available going forward as long as he doesn't experience any setbacks.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Could pinch hit Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (shoulder) could be available as a pinch hitter against the Tigers on Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Although Encarnacion isn't in the lineup for his sixth straight game, manager Rick Renteria said that he expects that he'll return Tuesday and could even pinch hit Monday. The 37-year-old is hitting .200 with a home run, two RBI and 13 strikeouts over eight games this season.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (shoulder) isn't in the lineup Monday against the Tigers.

Encarnacion was cleared to take dry swings Friday, but he'll be on the bench for the sixth consecutive game. Yasmani Grandal will serve as the designated hitter Monday with James McCann starting behind the plate.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Won't start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (shoulder) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians.

Encarnacion will be confined to the bench for a fifth straight game while he contends with a sore left shoulder. Since Encarnacion was cleared to resume taking dry swings Friday, the White Sox have thus far been reluctant to place him on the 10-day injured list. Encarnacion may need to complete a live batting-practice session without discomfort in the next day or two to ensure he avoids the IL.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Takes swings Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (shoulder) took dry swings Friday, Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria talked about the situation at designated hitter, where Zack Collins has taken over for Encarnacion the last two games. The manager is hoping Encarnacion can execute normal work Saturday.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (shoulder) remains on the bench Friday against Cleveland.

Encarnacion has been sidelined since leaving Tuesday's game in Milwaukee with a sore left shoulder. He'll sit for at least one more game, though manager Rick Renteria indicated Thursday that Encarnacion should return at some point during the three-game weekend series. Zack Collins will again serve as the designated hitter in his absence.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Expected back this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Rick Renteria said he expects Encarnacion's (shoulder) injury to be resolved by the weekend, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Encarnacion is set to miss a second straight game Thursday due to shoulder soreness, though it sounds like the veteran slugger should be back at some point during Chicago's three-game series against the Indians this weekend. Zack Collins is starting at DH in his place Thursday.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (shoulder) is not in Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.

Encarnacion exited Tuesday's game with left shoulder soreness and will miss a second straight game as a result. Zack Collins is starting at DH in his place Thursday. The veteran slugger should be considered day-to-day.

August 5, 2020 05:20 PM
White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

The 37-year-old exited Tuesday's contest with left shoulder soreness and will miss at least one game as a result. It doesn't appear to be a serious injury as Encarnacion is considered day-to-day, but the team figures to remain cautious with the veteran slugger.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Exits with shoulder soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion was removed from Tuesday's game at Milwaukee with left shoulder soreness.

The veteran slugger appeared to suffer the injury on his infield single during the fourth inning, though at the time he remained in the game to run the bases. Encarnacion should be considered day-to-day until the team updates his status.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion is not in the lineup Monday in Milwaukee.

The White Sox appear set to give the 37-year-old plenty of rest this season, though his .179/.233/.286 slash line through seven games doesn't help his case for a true everyday role. He'll sit for the third time in the team's first 10 games, with Yasmani Grandal serving as the designated hitter and James McCann starting behind the plate.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion is not in the lineup Friday against the Royals.

Encarnacion sits for the second time this season, though his previous rest didn't give him a true off day, as it was part of Tuesday's doubleheader. Yasmani Grandal will rest his legs as the designated hitter Friday, with James McCann starting behind the plate.

July 28, 2020 07:28 PM
White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Sitting nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion isn't in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader at Cleveland.

Encarnacion served as the designated hitter for the matinee and went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts. Zack Collins will bat fifth as the DH for Game 2 of the twin bill.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Swats first home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion went 1-for-4 with two-run home run in Saturday's 10-3 win over the Twins.

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. Add in Tim Anderson, Yoan Moncada, Luis Robert and Yasmani Grandal and this could be one of the league's most productive offenses. The offense has produced 10 extra-base hits, six home runs and 15 runs in 18 innings so far this season.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: No limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Ready for second spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Encarnacion, who dealt with a sore right hip during spring training, had plenty of time to get healthy during the pause prompted by the coronavirus pandemic. He's used a batting cage at his farm and owns a hitting facility in Santo Domingo (Dominican Repbulic). 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.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Slowed by sore hip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion is dealing with a sore right hip but is expected to be fine by Opening day, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

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. It's probably wise to expect similar issues to crop up throughout the campaign for the 37-year-old, who has averaged just 123 games over the last two seasons.

White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Will play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (back) will serve as the White Sox's designated hitter and bat cleanup in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Athletics.

A stiff back kept him out of the lineup for the past few days, but Encarnacion will return to action Tuesday after he took batting practice over the weekend without issue. The 37-year-old should be good to go for Opening Day and will be looking to reach the 30-homer plateau for the ninth straight season.

March 1, 2020 09:00 PM
White Sox's Edwin Encarnacion: Could return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (back) could be in the lineup for Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Athletics, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Encarnacion was pulled from Thursday's game with back stiffness, but he's been able to swing off the tee and in the batting cage this weekend. It's never appeared to be a serious issue for the 36-year-old and should not impact his availability for Opening Day.
