Edwin Encarnacion (ankle) returns to Indians' lineup for Game 5 of ALDS
Cleveland Indians first baseman/designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion is back in the starting lineup as the designated hitter on Wednesday against the New York Yankees.
Encarnacion was forced to sit out the last two games with a sprained ankle, while watching his team drop two straight to force a Game 5. Encarnacion will hit out of the cleanup spot and his bat will be needed against southpaw C.C. Sabathia. Michael Brantley will head back to the bench for Game 5.
Our models project Encarnacion for 12.2 FanDuel points at a cost of $3,900.
