Edwin Encarnacion injury update: Yankees slugger (oblique) 'feeling better every day,' return close

New York fans got a positive update late Monday as slugger Edwin Encarnacion, who has been hampered by an oblique injury, said he's "feeling better every day." “I'm almost ready,” Encarnacion said at an event (via the New York Post). “I don't know if I'll be 100 percent this week, but I think I'm at 80 percent.” The 36-year-old first baseman/DH, who was injured during a doubleheader against the Tigers last Thursday, added he expects to be back in the lineup before the end of the regular season, which concludes in less than two weeks.
