Update (11:32 PM EDT): X-rays were negative. Encarnacion is considered day-to-day with a ligament sprain in his left middle finger, Rosenthal reports.
Blue Jays DH Edwin Encarnacion was curiously pinch-hit for in the top of the eighth inning on Friday night during ALCS Game 1 against the Royals. It turns out the slugger underwent a precautionary X-ray on his finger or knuckle, per Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
More about Encarnacion’s condition should be known shortly or on Saturday.
