CHICAGO — Yankees general manager Brian Cashman isn't done. Instead, he's likely just getting started. The Yankees' late Saturday night surprise trade for designated hitter/first baseman Edwin Encarnacion — the AL leader in home runs — during a 8-4 win over the White Sox seemed like only step No. 1. Surely, the Yankees will make more moves before the July 31 trade deadline, and they might make them quickly. Here's what should be next: 25-man roster move: To get Encarnacion onto the 40-man roster, Cashman put reliever Jake Barrett (elbow) on the 60-day injured list. To get him on the 25-man roster, sending outfielder Mike Tauchman to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre seems like the likely option.
