Toronto Blue Jays fans must be happy with these excellent news, Edwin Encarnacion is in the starting lineup for Game 2, but people can’t help asking themselves how well he will hit.

The player left Game 1 after the sixth inning, as the result of a swollen middle finger on his left hand, this is an issue he has been dealing with for some time. On Friday night X-rays were taken, which were negative, and on Saturday morning he had an MRI as well.

“We got an MRI this morning, just so the doctors could clear it,” said Toronto manager John Gibbons, “And they say deal with the pain.”

According to Gibbons, if they give Encarnacion a day off it might help “but we need him, so he’s in there. He’ll battle through it.” The player will be off Sunday before the series resumes in Toronto on Monday. Encarnacion hit 39 home runs and drove in 111 runs this season, even though he’s dealing with his finger problems. The player also hit a massive home run in Game 5 of the division series.

“Edwin is a big part of our team. Anytime he’s in the lineup we’re a better team,” According to Toronto center fielder Kevin Pillar. “It’s something he’s dealt with throughout the year. He probably wouldn’t be playing if it wasn’t a postseason game. But Edwin is extremely passionate and wants to win, and he’s going to do whatever it takes to get ready to play today.”
