Marlins add Jerar Encarnacion to 40-man rosterNovember 20, 2020 | 10:01 PM
Marlins purchased the contract of OF Jerar Encarnacion.
Analysis: The 23-year-old outfielder had a breakthrough season offensively in 2019, slashing .276/.331/.425 with 16 homers, 71 RBI and six stolen bases between Class-A Clinton and High-A Jupiter in 2019. He followed that up by hitting .269/.315/.433 with three homers and 16 RBI in 19 games during the Arizona Fall League. He's still a couple of years away from challenging for a spot on the Marlins' big league roster, but Encarnacion is an intriguing bat to watch.
