Jays showing Edwin the ‘most love’

Rick Westhead, at TSN.ca reports that Edwin Encarnacion’s agent says that Edwin will likely sign either this week or early next week.

And he says:

“The Jays are showing Edwin the most love,” Kinzer said. “We’re talking. They want him back. Ross has been talking to Edwin. They have a great relationship.”

With Yoenis Cespedes signing for 4-years and $110 million, maybe Edwin is more willing to take a 4-year deal himself.

Apparently two teams have offered contracts to Edwin. I’d imagine the other team is the Astros, which would give them a tax advantage, but the agent says that ‘comfort level’ is a consideration, which makes it sound as if he’d like to come back to the Jays.

Would you be comfortable with 4 years and say $100 million for Edwin? I’m guessing that’s about where he ends up.

It would be nice to have some real news to talk about.
