The Yankees activated Edwin Encarnación from the 10-day injured list today. He was out around a month with a fractured right wrist. He’s in the starting lineup today and will hit fifth, playing DH, against the Rangers.

Encarnación ended up missing a month with a fracture in his right wrist. The Yankees did just fine without him, but it’s not a bad thing to get a bat like his back in the lineup. On the year he’s hitting .240/.346/.518 with 30 homers and 76 driven in. Since being traded to the Yankees in mid-June he’s been hitting .238/.327/.497 with nine homers in 36 games.
