“He’s a home run hitter,” Tino says … “He’s the best!”
Encarnacion was just traded from the Mariners to the Yankees in a move that only cost the Bronx Bombers a low-level prospect and some cash.
And, Tino — who was also famously dealt from the Mariners to the Yankees before NY’s 1996 World Series-winning season — is fired up for the move.
As for Clint Frazier — the stud outfielder who was demoted back to the minors in order to make room for Edwin — Martinez says he’s confident the 24-year-old will be just fine.
“Clint Frazier is an awesome player, man,” Tino says … “He’ll be back!”
Tino also tells us he doesn’t think the Yankees wheelin’ and dealin’ is done just yet this season … saying he thinks the team could also be adding a starting pitcher soon!!
