Report: Yankees land slugger Edwin Encarnacion in trade with Mariners

Report: Yankees land slugger Edwin Encarnacion in trade with Mariners

The MLB trade deadline is more than a month away, but the Boston Red Sox's arch rival already is making moves.

On Saturday, the New York Yankees reportedly acquired slugger Edwin Encarnacion in a trade with the Seattle Mariners.

Seattle gets pitching prospect Juan Then in return.

Encarnacion will be inserted into an already-fearsome lineup that soon will have both Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge back from their injury rehab assignments. While New York is set offensively, they likely will be searching for pitching help before the July 31 trade deadline.

In his age 36 season, Encarnacion currently leads the American League in home runs with 21. He has hit 20+ homers in each of his last eight seasons.

The first-place Yankees are five games ahead of the Red Sox in the AL East.
