FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Blue Jays think Edwin Encarnacion (quad) could be activated from the disabled list next week.

Encarnacion resumed taking batting practice and fielding ground balls this week and evidently did it with no complications. The slugger has been on the shelf since early July with a strained right quad but is poised to rejoin the Blue Jays' lineup soon as the club continues a playoff push.

Edwin Encarnacion (quad) is scheduled to take batting practice and field ground balls Tuesday in Florida.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that there's no timetable for Edwin Encarnacion's (quad) return.

Blue Jays placed 1B Edwin Encarnacion on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quad.

Encarnacion suffered the quad injury Saturday while trying to beat out a double play relay throw at first base and could be out for up to four weeks. The slugger boasts a .277/.368/.591 batting line with 26 home runs and 70 RBI in 88 games this season. It's obviously a big loss for the Blue Jays.

Edwin Encarnacion launched a three-run, walk-off home run in the ninth inning of Wednesday's win over the Brewers.

The Brewers looked like they were going to get out of a two-on, no-out jam when Anthony Gose bunted into a forceout and Darin Mastroianni struck out. Encarnacion saved the day, though, with a laser into the left field seats. The longball was his 26th of the season, and he also singled earlier in the day. With a .281/.370/.603 batting line and 69 RBI to go along with his 26 bombs, Encarnacion will certainly be part of the All-Star game in a couple weeks.
