Born on January 7, 1983 in La Romana, Dominican Republic, he made his career beginnings when he was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 2000 amateur draft and then signed with the team. However, he saw his big pro Major League debut on June 24, 2005 playing for the Cincinnati Reds. With the Reds, Encarnación won the National League Player of the week on August 7-13, 2006.
It was in 2008 that Encarnación set career highs like striking out 102 times – the first time he struck out over 100 in his career. As of July 2009 he started playing with the Blue Jays as a designated hitter. He was taken to Triple-A Las Vegas on June 23, 2010 but soon brought back to the Blue Jays on July that same year. He scored his 100th home run against the Minnesota Twins. In 2011, the Blue Jays picked up Encarnación´s club option for the 2012 season.
