Sources: Cleveland has checked in on Edwin Encarnacion. Perfect fit as RH power in LH-heavy lineup. Question is: Would they spend the money?

The Indians had Mike Napoli as their primary DH in 2016 and they are still likely looking into him as an option for 2017, however, as the market grows thin for Edwin Encarnacion his price may drop putting him into play for the Indians. At this point it still seems like his asking price is a bit too much but things may change over the next couple of days. Keep an eye on this development as the Winter Meetings are just starting to heat up!
