MLB Rumors: Toronto Blue Jays Still Hoping to Re-Sign Edwin Encarnacion

Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson

The Toronto Blue Jays offered free agent Edwin Encarnacion a contract of approximately four years, $80 million and "they remain interested in retaining him even after signing free agent hitter Kendrys Morales", according to Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball and FanRag Sports. Turns out that doesn't kill their chances or re-signing the slugger, only makes it more hard to compete with other teams, with Encarnacion probably looking for a $100 million contract, over four or five years, it doesn't matter to him. Heyman reports, however, that the Sox have joined the Astros, Yankees, and Rangers as some of clubs who have reached out about the 33-year-old slugger.

Encarnacion rejected the Jays' one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer before the November 14 deadline.

Encarnacion added nine RBI and three home runs in the postseason, including a three-run walk-off home run to defeat the Baltimore Orioles in the AL wild-card game.
