Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion is coming off wrist surgery and is prepared to put up huge numbers again this year.

He finished last year with 36 home runs and 104 RBI’s with a batting line of .272/.370/.534. His career best came back in 2012 when he launched 42 home runs and recorded 110 RBI’s on a batting line of .280/.384/.557.

Encarnacion isn’t the only Blue Jay who is coming off of surgery. Teammate Melky Cabrera had a tumor removed from his lower back and hopes to also improve his numbers from a year before. I think this team had what it takes to possibly lock up a Wild Card spot this year.

I think both Edwin and Jose Bautista‘s bats are going to light it up this year. Both men have stepped it up over the last couple of years, giving their fans something to cheer for.

Now according to BlueJays.com, Encarnacion feels like he’s good and ready to go this Spring.

“I feel ready and ready to go. It took almost seven weeks to be 100 percent. I didn’t want to hurry my plan to recover, so I took my time to make sure it would be ready.” Edwin Encarnacion via BlueJays.com.

Edwin has been dealing with wrist problems over the last couple of years. Hopefully this will be the last time he’ll have to deal with anything wrist related.
