Sun Aug 1200:13Indians put slugger Encarnacion on DL with biceps problem
CHICAGO (AP) — The Cleveland Indians are putting slugger Edwin Encarnacion on the disabled list because of swelling in his left biceps.Manager Terry Francona made the announcement after the AL Central leaders beat the Chicago White Sox 3-1 on Saturday night. Encarnacion left Friday night's game and had an MRI in Cleveland on Saturday."There's some swelling in the bicep and it's not bad at all," Francona said. "Between the wrist and the bicep, I think we just thought 10 days, letting him come back and being Edwin made the most sense."Francona said X-rays on Encarnacion's right hand "came back actually really good, really clean."Third on the team with 25 homers and second with 81 RBIs, Encarnacion has struggled since being hit on the right hand by Yankees reliever Chad Green before the All-Star break. He has often been swinging with one hand, putting more stress on his upper arms.Losing their cleanup hitter for any significant time would be a blow for the Indians, who lead the division by 11 games.With Encarnacion going on the DL, Francona said infielder Yandy Diaz is being recalled from Triple-A Columbus.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

DH Edwin Encarnacion returned to the lineup for Game 5 after missing the previous two games with a sprained right ankle. "I watched him in the cage (during Tuesday's off day), and if I wouldn't have been looking (for some sign of the ankle bothering him), I wouldn't have known that something was going on. So I thought that was a really good sign," manager Terry Francona said. Encarnacion, who hit 38 home runs with 107 RBIs in the regular season, was 0-for-4 in Game 5 and 0-for-7 in the three games he played in the Division Series.

DH Edwin Encarnacion did not play Sunday in Game 3 due to a sprained right ankle. Cleveland manager Terry Francona said Encarnacion was feeling better but it was unlikely he would be available Sunday. "Unless you see him pulling a Willis Reed, you know he's probably not going to be available tonight," Francona said. "And we'll kind of still go by the day-by-day thing and see how that goes tomorrow." Encarnacion was injured in the first inning of Game 2 when his foot jammed into the second base bag attempting to get to the base on a line drive.

DH Edwin Encarnacion, who suffered an ankle injury in Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the New York Yankees, is expected to return sometime in the postseason and might even play in Sunday's Game 3. Encarnacion was injured sliding back into second base after a flyball. He suffered ligament damage to his ankle and he was on crutches with his foot in a boot Saturday. Manager Terry Francona said Encarnacion probably won't start Game 3 but said he might get into the game. "I don't know if remarkably better is a good way to say it, but he's pretty close," Francona said, according to Cleveland.com. "He's doing much better today. I don't think he's going to start on Sunday, but he's not been ruled out either." Encarnacion said no bones were broken and considered himself day-to-day. Encarnacion hit 38 homers with 107 RBIs in his first season with the Indians. Cleveland signed him to a three-year, $60 million contract after playing 2016 for the Toronto Blue Jays.

DH Edwin Encarnacion is expected to miss some time after leaving the game in the first inning with a sprained right ankle. Encarnacion suffered the injury when he jammed his leg into the second base bag. "He had an MRI and it showed a sprained ankle," manager Terry Francona said. "The severity of it, it's going to depend on how he feels. Right now they say he's day to day, which if that's the case that would be tremendous."
