FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE BREAKING NEWS: INDIANS REEL IN EDWIN ENCARNACION WITH THREE-YEAR DEAL

The Cleveland Indians waited out the free agent market of first base slugger Edwin Encarnacion and were rewarded after they signed him to a three-year deal late in the day on Thursday.  Encarnacion was looking for a five year deal on the open market but the expected high amount of suitors never materialized much in the same way it happened to Yoenis Cespedes last winter.

Analysis:  Just a great move by the Indians who get Encarnacion on their teams and with a solid but not ridiculous contract.  The only knock is that Encarnacion himself moves from arguably the best power ballpark in the majors in Toronto to a neutral one in Cleveland.  Chop just a few home runs and RBI from his ledger and still go with Encarnacion in the second round of the draft.
