Chicago White Sox: Will Edwin Encarnacion be healthy for Opening Day?

Jesse Sanchez of reported that Edwin Encarnacion is dealing with a sore right hip and the team will be hoping that he can start swinging again on Friday.

That being said, Opening Day is two weeks away which makes a recovery time more difficult for him.

Before going down with the injury, the right-handed hitter only appeared in six games (15 at-bats) and had not registered a hit yet.

While his stats in spring training don’t mean a lot long-term, Encarnacion clearly was still shaking off some rust from the offseason, which means he’ll have to find a way to do that with fewer opportunities before Opening Day.
