CHICAGO (AP) The New York Yankees neared a trade for Seattle slugger Edwin Encarnacion on Saturday night, looking to boost a power-packed lineup that's been beset by injuries.

A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press the teams were trying to complete the deal. The person spoke under condition of anonymity because the trade was not finalized.

ESPN was the first to report the deal. It was not immediately known what the Yankees might send to the Mariners.
