Update: Encarnacion was scratched from Thursday's lineup with soreness in his left shoulder that has moved into his forearm, Blue Jays broadcaster Mike Wilner reports.
Recommendation: Encarnacion's shoulder soreness may be the result of him trying make a diving catch Wednesday. He tried to take batting practice Thursday, but couldn't. No MRI is planned for Encarnacion, and he'll be questionable to return Friday. David Cooper will start at first base in his absence.
