The Cleveland Indians just might get some pop back in their lineup.

Indians manager Terry Francona is confident designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion will play against the New York Yankees in Game 5 of the 2017 American League Division Series at Progressive Field Wednesday night.

I think so, Francona said when asked if Encarnacion will be available to play.

Hes been hitting off of a machine already. Were going to test him running. Hes never been one of our biggest base-stealing threats, but were going to test him to make sure he can go.

In the bottom of the first inning of Game 2 at Progressive Field, the Indians mounted a rally, as they loaded the bases when Encarnacion was hit by a pitch in the knee, and then, drew even at 2-2 when first baseman Carlos Santana smacked a two-run single to left field.
