Bluejays The Blue Jays have signed Edwin Encarnacion to a three-year, $27 million deal

Quote:
Big news from north of the border: the Toronto Blue Jays have signed Edwin Encarnacion to three-year, $27 million deal. It kicks off next season and runs through 2015. There is a $10 million club option for 2016.

Encarnacion is having a career year, hitting .295/.382/.565 with 23 homers and 58 RBI. The home run total is already a career high. His career high in RBI is 76 and he should surpass that too. Heís 29 years-old.

This is a good deal in my view. Itís not a price that suggests that the Jays are expecting 150 OPS+ production from Encarnacion for the next three years. Indeed, Mark Reynolds will make more over the next two years of his deal than Encarnacion will make over the first two years of his and Mark Reynolds is terrible.

Seems like a solid deal for a guy with an above average bat who just may put up another significantly above average season or two over the next few years. It also takes a potential trade target for many teams off the market.

Figured they would do this. I doubt he can repeat the numbers he is putting up now over the next three years.
