Report: SF Giants to Sign History-Making Slugger

He became the first major leaguer in over 120 years to make his big league debut with a grand slam, a stolen base and an outfield assist in his first game. That was back in 2022. Now, Jerar Encarnacion is hoping to tap back into that historic start, this time two years later with the San Francisco Giants. 

The Giants have had a very unremarkable start to the season, sitting four games under .500, with not a lot of excitement for the fans on a daily basis. They hope that Encarnacion, who has 18 HRs, a .381 batting average and an OPS of 1.495 in the  Mexican League, can inject some of that thrill into the Giants lineup. 

Encarnacion made that 2022 MLB debut with the Miami Marlins, but his hot start didn't last very long, as his average plummeted to .182 and he was sent down to the minors after 23 games where he spent the rest of 2022 and the entire 2023 season.

The 6'4", 220-pounder has continued to hammer the baseball, hitting 26 bombs last year at AAA, and now this hot start in Mexico this season. 

Reports say he will start at Triple-A for the Giants, and then be promoted if he can continue on his hot pace.
