  • Mariners Trade Edwin Encarnacion To Yankees

    Yanks adding AL HR leader Encarnacion

    The Seattle Mariners have traded Edwin Encarnacion to the New York Yankees, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN.

    Encarnacion, 36, leads the American League with 21 home runs this season. He has missed Seattle's past three games because of back soreness.

    The Dominican slugger is a three-time All-Star and has recorded at least 32 home runs and 98 RBIs in each of the past seven seasons.

    He was in his first year with Seattle after the Indians traded him for Carlos Santana and cash in December as part of a three-team trade that also saw Jake Bauers move from Tampa Bay to Cleveland.

    Encarnacion has 18 career home runs at Yankee Stadium, his second most at any stadium that he has not previously called home (trailing only Fenway Park).
