Yanks acquire Encarnacion from M’s

While the Yankees hope to get sluggers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton back from injury soon, it hasn’t stopped the team from adding another slugger to the mix. New York bolstered its lineup Saturday, as the Yanks announced they have acquired Edwin Encarnacion from the Seattle Mariners.

The Yanks are sending 19-year-old right-hander Juan Then—their No. 27 prospect, per MLB Pipeline—and cash considerations to Seattle. A source told MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand that the Mariners will pick up about half the money still owed to Encarnacion (he’s owed more than $15 million in salary and buyout).

MLB roundup: Encarnacion homers twice in same inning

Edwin Encarnacion hit a pair of home runs in the sixth inning, and the visiting Seattle Mariners scored eight times in the frame to earn a 13-5 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Monday.

The Mariners have scored five or more runs in 11 of their first 12 games and became the first team in the major leagues to win 10 games.

Encarnacion became the first major-leaguer to hit two home runs in an inning in almost three years. Mark Trumbo of the Los Angeles Angels did in on April 15, 2016, at Texas. Seattle also got homers from Daniel Vogelbach, Dylan Moore and Jay Bruce.

Roenis Elias (1-0) picked up the win, pitching three scoreless, hitless innings of relief. Royals starter Homer Bailey (0-1) gave up seven runs on eight hits, including three home runs, in five-plus innings.

DINGERS! Get your red-hot dingers here! DINGERS!
