Edwin Encarnacion reaches milestone with latest home run

No team is safe when Edwin Encarnacion is at the plate.

Encarnacion hit a home run to deep center field Friday against his former team, the Toronto Blue Jays, which was the only team the slugger had not sent one over the fence against.

The blast gave Encarnacion a home run against all 30 MLB teams, and it also earned him his sixth straight season with 20-plus home runs.

After a bit of a slow start (batting .200 at the end of April) in his new Indians uniform, Encarnacion has started to heat up this summer.

Jackson is an interesting player. In terms of production, he’s the first freshman wing since Dwyane Wade in 2002 to post 15 points, six rebounds and three assists per game. His per-minute numbers stand up well in that same capacity. Simply put, Jackson gets by through sheer athleticism, motor and an unusual lack of fear of the moment.

He consistently makes winning plays late in games, as seen by his 20-point, 10-rebound performance against Kentucky. But he’s also flawed. His defensive effort isn’t great at all times — seemingly out of a concern for Cheap Jerseys From China NHL fouling — and his jump shot is still rough both in terms of mechanics and results.

In the end, I think Jackson is a guy that you want to go to battle with Cheap Jerseys For Sale on your team. Without Cheap Jerseys For Kids becoming a consistent shooter, he may not have the upside of some of the guys below him on this list, but he will be a consistent playmaker in the NBA. He starts the second tier of prospects.
