Edwin Encarnacion

Pos: 1B
Previous Team: Blue Jays
2016 Stats: 160 G, .263/.357/.529, 42 HR, 127 RBI
DoB: 1983-01-07 (34)
Bats: R
Throws: R
Player Profile: He's another elite slugger on the market who doesn't really seem like a fit for the Twins. Coming off a year in which he matched Dozier's 42 homers and led the league in RBI, the ultra-consistent Encarnacion is going to get paid.
Est. Contract: 4 years, $100 million
Actual Contract: 3 years, $60 million
New Team: Indians
Notes/Analysis: 11/6/16: According to Jon Heyman, the Blue Jays have extended a qualifying offer to Encarnacion.
