How to Watch Yankees vs. Indians

How to Watch Yankees vs. Indians

"Asked if Encarnacion could play in Wednesday's winner-take-all game, Francona said, 'I think so". He's been hitting off the machine already, and we're going to have him go out and run just to see where he is running-wise.

The bad news is the Yankees went on to lose that game, with Joe Girardi and the bullpen managing to blow a five-run lead. "He was never exactly our biggest base-stealing threat, but we want to use common sense".

Francona said he has four possible lineups for Wednesday's game. Rather than flying to Cleveland on Thursday ahead of Game 1 Friday, the Astros would host games 1 and 2 on Friday and Saturday before heading to NY for games 3, 4 and 5. "But I'll be ready to play", Encarnacion told ESPN Tuesday.

Encarnacion, a three-time All-Star who joined the Indians on a three-year deal worth $65 million last offseason, hit.258 with 38 home runs and 107 RBIs in his first year with Cleveland.

Encarnacion actually hits righties better than he does lefties, but he gets fewer chances against southpaws.




"He's probably available for a couple innings if I need him", Girardi said of Chapman.

Encarnacion's importance also becomes magnified when you consider how poorly the top of the order has performed for Francona.

Francisco Lindor hasn't been heard from since since his Game 2 Grand Slam. Robertson, 32, established new single-game career-highs in innings pitched (3.1) and pitches thrown (52), while Green threw two innings and 41 pitches - six shy of his season-high in a high-leverage middle relief role. Jason Kipnis is 4-for-18 with a triple.

Cleveland ultimately rallied to win that game, but it is now faced with a decisive Game 5 back home after losing both games in NY.

Hopefully, he'll be the difference maker that catapults the Tribe into the ALCs.
