Free-agent slugger Edwin Encarnacion has agreed to a deal with the Cleveland Indians, according to multiple reports.
The deal is for three years and $60 million, with a fourth-year club option of $20 million or a $5 million buyout.
The Indians add Encarnacion to a team coming off its first World Series appearance since 1997, losing to the Chicago Cubs in seven games.
Encarnacion, 33, tied with David Ortiz for the American League lead with 127 RBIs last season while hitting a career-matching best 42 home runs and batting .263. A first baseman and designated hitter, he was an All-Star this past year for the third time.
Encarnacion is the only player in the majors with at least 30 homers in each of the past five seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
Edwin an Indian now
Isn't that the same deal he turned down from Toronto?
No , the Indians deal was a year less.
Is Chris Jones managing the Blue Jays too?
