Edwin Encarnacion Newsbeat

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!

Report: Mariners still intend to trade Edwin Encarnación

The Mariners acquired DH Edwin Encarnación as part of a three-team trade that involved the Indians and Rays back in December. The Indians received Jake Bauers and Carlos Santana, the Rays got Yandy Diaz and minor leaguer Cole Sulser, and the Mariners got Encarnación, cash, and a 2019 competitive balance pick.

After winning 89 games last season, the Mariners held a fire sale, trading James Paxton to the Yankees; Alex Colomé to the White Sox; Robinson Canó and Edwin Díaz to the Mets; and Jean Segura, Juan Nicasio, and James Pazos to the Phillies. According to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times, Encarnación could be next. The club informed him of its intention to move him after bringing him to Seattle and it seems that is still the case.

Encarnación, 36, has one year remaining on his contract at $20 million along with a 2020 club option worth $20 million with a $5 million buyout. Last season with the Indians, he hit .246/.336/.474 with 32 home runs and 107 RBI in 579 plate appearances. The Mariners could pounce on an opportunity if a 1B/DH type on another team suffers an injury during spring training.

Will the last member of the Mariners be sure to turn off the lights on their way out?
