EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger continued his steady march toward the century mark in RBI with a 416-foot solo shot in the first and added a two-bagger later in the game for his second multi-hit effort in the last three contests. Encarnacion hasn't been able to approximate his 30 RBI- June this month, but is still slashing a solid .282/.352/.603 over 78 at-bats.

Encarnacion went 1-for-4 with one walk and a two-run homer Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Encarnacion didn't need to provide any more evidence that he enjoys hitting at Chase Field, but that didn't seem to matter Wednesday afternoon. The veteran slugger's two-run shot in the top of the eighth inning was absolutely crushed. According to Statcast, Encarnacion's 26th of the season landed a projected 471 feet away and left his bat at 112 mph. That was the longest home run Encarnacion has hit in the Statcast era (2015 to present), and the fourth longest hit by anyone this season. He now has 10 home runs in 17 career games at Chase Field.

EDGE Analysis

This marks Encarnacion's fourth three-RBI game already in July. He has three home runs in his past six games and is looking like he will challenge his career high of 42 home runs set back in 2012. With 25 already through 95 team games, he's on pace for 43.

Encarnacion launched 23 home runs, tallied 80 RBI and crossed the plate 57 times during the first half of 2016.

EDGE Analysis

The soon-to-be free agent is doing all he can to earn a large payday in the winter. Playing in his 12th MLB season, Encarnacion is on pace to score 100-plus runs for the first time ever, while hitting 40-plus home runs for just the second time in his career, and first since 2012. He's a mere 31 RBI away from tying the career-high 111 that he notched last year, and also on pace to set a lifetime mark in doubles. Even more exciting for owners is that Encarnacion has performed significantly better during the second half in recent seasons -- over the past three campaigns, he's hit a combined .259 prior to the Midsummer Classic while averaging .296 following the break.

Encarnacion dropped the appeal of his one-game suspension and is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers, Sportsnet's Mike Wilner reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rather than prolonging his appeal, Encarnacion will tack an extra day onto his All-Star break. Josh Donaldson will serve as the DH, allowing Darwin Barney to enter the lineup at third base.

Encarnacion went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and three RBI in Sunday's 17-1 shellacking of the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

The major league's RBI leader now has 76 on the year as Encarnacion took his frustrations with Friday's umpiring out on Cleveland pitching in the final two games of the weekend series, as he pounded out four hits including a home run and the two doubles as well as six RBI. His one-game suspension for bumping ump Vic Carapazza is still looming, but EE's a must-start in your lineups until then.

Encarnacion was given a one-game suspension Sunday for making contact with umpire Vic Carapazza in Friday's loss to the Indians, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports. He'll appeal the ruling.

EDGE Analysis

Encarnacion was ejected from the contest after logging just one at-bat, a development that proved costly when the game lasted 19 innings and the Blue Jays had few reserves available. The slugger will still serve as the DH and bat third in Sunday's lineup, and should continue to play on an everyday basis until his appeal is formally heard. Look for a resolution on the matter within the next few days.
