Miami's closer legacy is lengthy, but Encinosa hasn't been able to live up to it despite moving back to relief after starting last spring. With a physical 6-foot-5, 242-pound frame, he produces excellent sink and life on his 93-94 mph fastball, though at times the pitch isn't that firm. He lacks control, not to mention command, with15 walks, seven hit batsmen and five wild pitches in 28 innings en route to losing the closer role to A.J. Salcines. That said, Encinosa is hard to square up (one extra-base hit, .129 opponents average). His mound demeanor doesn't help matters; he's not shy about showing up his infielders if they make a mistake.
