Encarnacion, Indians get another crack at Blue Jays

Cleveland Indians catcher Yan Gomes is congratulated by Indians right fielder Abraham Almonte after hitting a three-run home run against the Toronto Blue Jays during eighth inning American League MLB baseball action in Toronto on Tuesday May 9

"At least that's what (the trainers) think". The Jays would take game one of the series with a 4-2 victory. Travis was at second base after a one-out double.

Morales, in his first year as the DH and occasional first baseman, may be able to produce numbers that approach those that will be posted eventually by Encarnacion in Cleveland, but when Encarnacion and Bautista anchored the middle of the Jays order from 2012-16, there was an extra dimension.

According to the Swedish website Expressen, Leafs prospect Pierre Engvall has signed a two-year deal with HV-71 of the SHL.

That home run will forever be etched in Encarnacion's mind. Barney drilled an 0-1 offering from Tampa Bay starter Alex Cobb, who stymied the Jays for most of the game, into the seats.

The only difference was this time he was wearing a different shade of blue as a member of the Cleveland Indians. "All that he did up there. but I hope he does something to break their hearts".

"The goal for me was always to start in the major leagues", Biagini said.

The Nashville Predators advancing to the Western Conference Final on Sunday was good news for the Maple Leafs, as they will now draft 17th overall in the NHL Draft in Chicago on June 23rd.

Minus the cape, Kevin Pillar takes this super-man business quite seriously. He signed tons of autographs as fans screamed his name.

It didn't seem like the Blue Jays tried all that hard to bring back Edwin Encarnacion.


The folks here clearly didn't hold the ugly end against Encarnacion. There's no reason to rush him back.

"Eddie did a lot for this town, this franchise". He's about as much of a given as you can find in this game.

Ultimately, he chose to go where he has the best chance to get that coveted World Series ring and maybe Cleveland is the place for him to do so.

"I'm really excited to be back".

"At first, I wasn't expecting the reception that I got, but then, when they stood up, that huge group of fans that stood up for me, they not only gained my respect, but also, the respect of all the other players that were there that saw it and heard it", Encarnacion said. "This is a city that opened its doors to me and gave me the opportunity to have the career that I've had".

How big a loss was Encarnacion for the Jays?

In the sixth inning, the Cleveland Indians managed to place runners at the corners. He was coming off a career-high season of 42 home runs. The light usually hitting infielder is batting.200 with 3 home runs in 65 at-bats, shockingly Goins has more home runs than slugger Jose Bautista thus far. He was slugging.377. But it's par for the course.

It was the first game between the teams since the Indians beat Toronto for the American League Championship previous year in five games.

"It looked like he was touched", Francona said.
