CHICAGO (AP) The New York Yankees acquired AL home run leader Edwin Encarnacion in a trade with the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night, adding another feared slugger to what could be baseball's most powerful lineup when Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton return from injuries.

The Yankees also got cash in the deal while sending 19-year-old minor league pitcher Juan Then to Seattle. Encarnacion is making $20 million this season.

Speaking before the trade was announced, New York manager Aaron Boone declined comment. But asked about having room for another power bat, Boone coyly responded, "There's always room for good players."
