Edwin Encarnacion is back.
If you don’t believe me, look at yesterday’s box score: E—Encarnacion.
No, they are not just calling him by his initial, the man again showed his lack of defensive prowess. His throwing error yesterday allowed the St. Louis Cardinals to bring home two more runs (as if they needed them).
The Reds already have warm bodies to put at third and actually get some hits. If he would hit like he is capable, it would be a different story. The man’s OBP doesn’t even make a decent batting average.
