Edwin Encarnacion could return for ALDS Game 5

Cleveland Indians designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion returned to the lineup for Game 5 of the American League Division Series against the New York Yankees on Wednesday at Progressive Field.

Encarnacion injured his ankle in game two of the MLB ALDS on Friday when he was trying to get back to second base after a Jay Bruce line out. Indians manager Terry Francona said "I think so" when asked if Encarnacion will be available for Wednesday night's game against the Yankees, who have come back from 2-0 to tie the series.

Giants suspend Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after he shows up, then leaves
Somehow things are getting worse: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie got suspended by the team Wednesday for what amounts to going AWOL. Rodgers-Cromartie, who had started three games, reported to the Giants headquarters Wednesday morning and then left.

"He's been hitting off the machine already and we're gonna have him go out and run just to see where he is running-wise", Francona said during his press conference on Tuesday. Me being in the lineup tomorrow is what we all want; it's what I want. "I don't know yet".

Encarnacion hit 38 homers and drove in 107 runs during the regular season.
