At some point on Monday, New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone will write Edwin Encarnacion's name into his lineup card as the designated hitter.

The slot Encarnacion occupies in a powerful batting order will be revealed sometime Monday afternoon but Boone and the rest of the Yankees are excited about adding the American League home run leader as they host the Tampa Bay Rays in the opener of a three-game series between the top two teams in the American League East.

Encarnacion was acquired from the Seattle Mariners Saturday and will join the Yankees Monday for the start of a 10-game homestand against Tampa Bay, Houston and Toronto.
