Mariners 1B DH Edwin Encarnación currently leads the American League with 21 home runs

Encarnacion leads the AL with 21 home runs, so he certainly will provide a boost to the AL East-leading Yankees. He has missed Seattle's last three games because of back soreness. The news was first reported Saturday night by ESPN's Jeff Passan.

Per The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, the Mariners and Yankees will split the remaining $15 million owed to Encarnacion.

The Yankees will reportedly be sending minor league pitching prospect Juan Then in return for Encarnacion. The impending trade could offer another reason for his multi-game absence.

And according to USA Today, the Mariners will eat $30 million of Encarnacion's contract in the deal.

Then went 0-3 with a 2.70 ERA in 11 starts in the Gulf Coast League in 2018. He will report to Short-A Everett.

This is another move that signals Seattle is in a full teardown and could be an interesting seller to watch in the coming weeks.

He could split time between designated hitter and at first base for NY. Bruce was traded in part to clear up a log jam at first base between Encnarnacion, Daniel Vogelbach and Ryon Healy, once his stint filling in for injured third baseman Kyle Seager, who has since returned, was over.
