Mariners trade Edwin Encarnacion, cash to Yankees for pitching prospect

J.P. Crawford had three RBIs in his return to the Mariners from the injured list

Encarnacion, 36, has hit no less than 34 home runs in a season since 2012 and now leads the American League with 21 dingers in 2019.

Seattle Mariners' Edwin Encarnacion runs back to the dugout in celebration after hitting a home run against the Minnesota Twins during the second inning of a baseball game Tuesday, June 11, 2019, in Minneapolis.

According to multiple reports, NY has traded for Seattle slugger Edwin Encarnacion.

As part of the trade, the Mariners will reportedly also send $8.4 million of what is owed to Encarnacion to NY. He's batting.241 with a.356 on-base percentage, .531 slugging percentage, .888 OPS, seven doubles and 49 RBIs in 65 games (289 plate appearances). Daniel Vogelbach is a designated hitter who can play the position, but Seattle is a far better team if he's not in the field.

The Mariners will eat $30 million of Encarnacion's contract in the deal, according to USA Today.

He will join a crowded DH market in NY.
