The New York Yankees have added another big bat to Edwin Encarnacion's dealings with the Seattle Mariners, ESPN reported on Jeff Passan Saturday night.
Encarnacion leads the American League with 21 home runs.
To make matters more terrifying for the rest of the MLB, the Bronx bombers are about to regain Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge from their respective injuries.

The most successful homerun hitter of the American League (currently) are on the New York Yankees. (and none of them is called Judge or Stanton)
Below you can see the full strength of the Yankee lineup:
1. DJ LeMahieu (3B)
2. Aaron Judge (RF)
3. Giancarlo Stanton (LF)
4. Gary Sanchez (C)
5. Luke Voit (1B)
6. Aaron Hicks (CF)
7. Edwin Encarnacion (DH)
8. Didi Gregorius (SS)
9. Gleyber Torres (2B)
If it really looks like this, the ninth strike of the Yankees will have 14 home runs and 33 RBI with a batting average of .285.
In the field, the addition of Encarnacion is most important to Luke Voit. Encarnacion launched 45 games and recorded nearly 400 innings in first basel for the Mariners this season, according to the Baseball Reference. Voit led all American League votes in first base when first results became known earlier this week.
Whoever Losing on first base should face proven batsman responsibilities alongside Clint Frazier, who has a robust .291 / .340 / 533 slash line and 11 home runs and 34 RBI.
As good as they can, they are moored on Saturday between 4 and 7 pm on the top of the AL East and taken to the next row with Encarnacion, Stanton and Judge.
