FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE NEWS: YANKEES NOW FAVORITES FOR EDWIN ENCARNACION WITH CARLOS BELTRAN SIGNING IN HOUSTON

Updating what we Tweeted earlier in the day, the New York Yankees look to be in the firm lead when it comes to signing free agent first baseman Edwin Encarnacion.  Carlos Beltran signing a one-year deal with the Houston Astros Saturday eliminates one suitor and the Boston Red Sox have previously stated they are no longer in the running.  Also with Encarnacion's 2016 team the Toronto Blue Jays having signed free agent DH Kendrys Morales, there may not be a fit there either.

Analysis:  We started saying over a week ago that Encarnacion was between the Yankees and Astros and now we are down to one in terms of a need for a DH/1B.  The Blue Jays could jump back in or maybe the Texas Rangers could get involved but the betting money would squarely be on the Yankees right now.
