Encarnación Received Multi-Year Offers From Six Teams

According to his agent (probably not the most credible spokesperson in the universe), free-agent slugger Edwin Encarnación has gotten multi-year contract offers from six teams. Despite the denials from Yawkey Way, you have to think the Red Sox are one of those teams. There are fewer than 14 possible AL clubs (aside from the Jays) who can use a DH like Edwin, so there's almost a 50% chance that the Sox are in it—at least to some degree. Now that they have room under the luxury tax threshold, it would only make sense to go after him. Stay tuned!
