Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion is not in the lineup Sunday against the New York Yankees because of irritation with his left middle finger, according to Sportsnet. Encarnacion apparently felt the tenderness during Saturday's victory, when he finished 1-for-3 with a walk to extend his hitting streak to 11 games. The team is not overly concerned about the issue, and believes that Encarnacion could return to the lineup as early as Tuesday against the Oakland A's after Monday's off-day. Encarnacion is hitting .251 with 21 home runs and 64 RBI in 104 games this season after hitting .268 with 34 home runs and 98 RBI in 128 games last year. His solid play has helped the Blue Jays to a 60-52 record, which puts them 2.5 games behind the New York Yankees for first place in the American League East.

Encarnacion went 1-for-5 Saturday with a two-run bomb, his 18th home run of the season.

He appeared to have turned a corner in June, slashing .303/.382/.553 in 76 at-bats, but so far this month Encarnacion has once again been a batting average sink, going 7-for-35 (.200) in 10 July games. He continues to supply good power numbers however, and his improved control of the strike zone (7:5 BB:K so far in July) suggests a big second half could still be in store.

Encarnacion is not in the lineup Thursday, ESPN Chicago's Doug Padilla reports.

It seems like just a day off for Encarnacion, as Justin Smoak starts at first base and Dioner Navarro starts at DH. The 32-year-old slugger has been solid this season, but has not returned on the investment it likely took to land him on draft day, as he is slashing .239/.330/.457.
