The Yankees and Edwin Encarnacion look like a one-and-done scenario.
The free agent could land with Chicago White Sox in the coming days, according to multiple reports this week.
The Yankees traded for Encarnacion in June, but didn't see the full impact of that move due to injury. The 36-year-old only appeared in 44 games with the Yankees due to wrist and oblique injuries.
Encarnacion hit .244 with 34 homers, 86 RBI and an .856 OPS in 109 games in 2019. When traded to the Yankees from the Mariners, he was leading the American League with 21 home runs.
The Yankees opted to buy out his contract in October for $5 million instead of excising a $20 million club option on his deal for the 2020 season.
MLB Network most recently reported Encarnacion and the White Sox could put the finishing touches on a contract after the holiday season and described talked as "very serious."
