Your National League fantasy tip of the day

Two words - Edwin Encarnacion.

His numbers for the year - with time off for a stint in AAA because of a reported run-in with his manager and sub-par fielding in the bigs - read pretty well.

He's 43 for 149 (batting .290/slugging .352) with 3 homers, 19 runs and 23 RBI. Nothing to write home about, until you see that in the past month he's batting .338 with an OBP of .419 and slugging .508 (9 runs, 2 HR, 9 RBI).

You could do worse for a third baseman in the NL if you're in a pinch.

I only mention this because he went 4-for-4 tonight with a homer a run and 3 RBI. I look forward to seeing him on SportsCenter in the morning.
