Edwin Encarnacion is out of the lineup today

Edwin Encarnacion is not in the Blue Jays’ starting lineup for today’s afternoon tilt against the Tigers.

Encarnacion left last night’s game due to back tightness, but it’s apparently not serious. Today’s just a day off. Adam Lind will start at first base and Dioner Navarro will DH.

Encarnacion has certainly done enough lately to earn a day off. After a power-packed May, he’s hitting .389 with three homers and six RBI in the past week.
