A disappointing season for the Toronto Blue Jays has just soured even more with the news that Edwin Encarnacion will be out with a wrist injury.

According to Shi Davidi of SportsNet, the first baseman will undergo surgery on his left wrist:

Encarnacion missed four games in the middle of September with the injury, but returned for a weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles, exclusively playing as a designated hitter.

Now it appears that his season is likely over given the extent of the injury and the fact that the 68-81 Blue Jays will not be competing in the playoffs.  

The veteran hitter currently ranks third in the majors with 36 home runs and third in the American League with 104 RBI, trailing only Chris Davis and Miguel Cabrera in both categories. 

Adam Lind has been playing first base for Toronto in Encarnacion’s absence and should remain there for the foreseeable future.
