DH Edwin Encarnacion is back in the Indians' lineup for Game 5 of the ALDS on Wednesday night against the Yankees and Progressive Field. He was sidelined since Game 2 with a sprained right ankle.

The Indians lost Games 3 and 4 without Encarnacion in the lineup. Encarnacion led the Indians with 38 homers and 107 RBI during the regular season.

"On Tuesday everybody was making a big deal about him running, I understand that," said manager Terry Francona. "But it's not like he's a basestealer. I just wanted to see him hit because if he really can't hit being out there in name doesn't help.
