Encarnacion was 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs and five RBI as Toronto crushed the Rangers on Friday night.

In Toronto, it seems like everyone takes a turn pummeling opposing pitchers, and apparently this was Encarnacion's night as he lead the 13 hit, 12 run attack. His average is improving, but is still a lackluster .245, however he now has 16 home runs and 47 RBI while hitting in the middle of baseball's most prolific offense.

Encarnacion remains in the Blue Jays' lineup Friday, MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm reports.

The Blue Jays were waiting to gauge Encarnacion's health before releasing the lineup Friday, but it seems like everything checked out. He missed a couple games earlier this week with a shoulder injury, and while it was a possible issue Friday, it remains something he can play through.

Encarnacion went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Marlins.

After missing two games with a shoulder injury, he's bounced back nicely, collecting the game winning hit Tuesday before having his first multi-hit game since May 24 on Wednesday. Staying healthy has always been Encarnacion's biggest challenge, but if he can stay on the field, he's one of the best power hitters in the game.

Encarnacion (shoulder) is out of the lineup Monday against the Marlins.

After leaving Saturday's game with a shoulder injury, Encarnacion hoped to be ready to go by Monday; however, he remains out of the lineup for the series opener against the Marlins. While his numbers are down this year -- he's hitting only .219 -- that could be a result of his nagging shoulder injury. Encarnacion's biggest problem has always been staying on the field, so fantasy owners and Blue Jays fans alike will certainly be hoping the cortisone shot Encarnacion received recently will help him stay healthier moving forward.

Encarnacion (shoulder) is optimistic that he'll be able to play Monday against the Marlins, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports. "I hope [Monday] I'm going to be alright to play," Encarnacion said. "We'll see how I'm going to feel."

Encarnacion required a cortisone shot in his shoulder after leaving Saturday's game with the injury, but it doesn't look like the slugging is in line for a lengthy absence. He was held out of Sunday's lineup and noted that he was still experiencing some soreness in his shoulder, but that's to be expected until the shot takes its full effect. A return to the lineup Monday might be a tad ambitious, but there's a good chance Encarnacion will be available for at least some part of three-game series.

Encarnacion, who will be held out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros, said he was still experiencing some soreness in his ailing shoulder, Barry Davis of Sportsnet reports.

The soreness is perfectly normal following a cortisone shot, which Encarnacion received Saturday. It normally takes a couple of days for the shot to take full effect, so the Blue Jays remain hopeful that Encarnacion will be fully recovered from the issue in the near future. No DL stint is expected at this time, though Encarnacion looks questionable at best to be available for Monday's series opener against the Marlins.
