Jon Heyman writes in FagRag or FanRag or something, the following:

He goes on to talk about how the Yankees are IN on big hitters and that is one of the main priorities for the Yanks. But logic will tell you that pitching is definitely needed, and so this idea of a cheaper alternative to a DH in Carlos Beltran makes a ton of better sense than Encarnacion. (Read THAT CARLOS BELTRAN REUNION IS REAL), whether we like the guy, or not.

It's true. Something seems off for me, almost like the rumor is driven by Heyman with no real info, just a lot of 'click bait'. Me and whitehorse67 agree.
And then there is just comments made just because folks don't like Beltran:
But as you can see, you need facts if you talk to us here at BYB. 'Damaged goods' Beltran is not.

And how about this. Maybe, just maybe the Yankees sign both. Trust me, it's not out of the ordinary. Beltran a strict DH at this point. That's what he will do in the Bronx.
Encarnacion could become the Yankee first baseman splitting some time with Greg Bird and all of them will offer power at the plate on any given day. And if Cashman does it smart, we can still get pitching... then everyone is happy.
We shall see.
