The Blue Jays got astonishing production out of what turned out to be the four-year, $37 million contract they gave Encarnacion (one that began in 2013): He hit 151 homers and drove in 440 runs over the course of the deal, ranking third and second, respectively, in baseball over that span. By the end of this past May, when he had just 10 home runs, it seemed as if he might be on course for a disappointing walk year, but he quickly returned to his slugging form. The Red Sox, now with a sizable hole at designated hitter following the retirement of David Ortiz, could use that kind of power in their lineup. Can you say "New Papi?"
