A busy weekend causes the Blue Jay of the Week to be a bit late but it’s here none the less!
This weeks Blue Jay of the Week is…. Edwin Encarnacion! (@Encadwin)
| 40 hr | 102 rbi |
Specific stats really don’t matter this week because it’s all about Edwin Encarnacion and the magical numbers 40 and 100!
EE and his signature home run trot rounded the bases for the 40th time this past week joining 7 former Blue Jays who have accomplished the feat. Along with the historic blast he surpassed the 100 rbi total on the season for the first time in his career.
In my opinion Edwin has been the breakout player across baseball this season and he is an integral part to the Blue Jays lineup moving forward. With Jose Bautista and many others struggling and battling injuries for much of the 2012 season, EE has been the one constant in the batting order who the team and fans could rely on.
Congratulations to Edwin Encarnacion for joining both the 40 home run and 100 rbi club, how could someone be more deserving of the Blue Jay of the Week?
