Blue Jays’ Edwin Encarnacion is Setting Himself Up Nicely for Free Agency

BLUE JAYS’ DH, EDWIN ENCARNACION, IS SURPASSING HIS PRE-SEASON PREDICTIONS AND COULD BE SETTING HIMSELF UP NICELY FOR HIS IMPENDING FREE AGENCY.

 

 

 

We didn’t really think we’d heard the end of the Edwin Encarnacion– Toronto Blue Jays contract situation, did we? Throughout the winter and Spring Training we were constantly reminded that there was no agreement in place for beyond the 2016 season.

Now that the season is well under way, there are rumblings of the Trade Deadline approaching and what that could mean for the 33 yr old.

The same can be said for Jose Bautista, perhaps more so. But unlike real life, this piece will bring Edwin out of the shadow of his older counterpart and put the focus squarely on him.

Edwin is outperforming his pre-season projections and could be setting himself up for a nice payday in the fall.
