Encarnacion underwent successful wrist surgery Thursday, TSN's Scott MacArthur reports.
The injury will require a two-month recovery period, giving Encarnacion plenty of time to workout in the offseason in preparation for spring training. Although the Blue Jays' roster was littered with underachievers this season, Encarnacion can't be counted among them after posting only slightly lower power numbers than his breakthrough 2012 campaign. The Blue Jays still look to have talented pieces in the lineup, and if Encarnacion's teammates can stay healthy and play up to their potential next season, he could come close to matching or surpassing those 2012 statistics.
