Yankees Giancarlo Stanton Could Be Out Until August

Published

New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is heading back to the injured list and could be out until August, according to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman and MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch.

Stanton has struggled to stay healthy this season, and Yankees manager Aaron Boone announced that the slugger was placed on the 10-day injured list due to a strained posterior collateral ligament in his right knee, according to The Athletic’s Lindsey Adler.

Stanton returned from the injured list last week after missing over two months with a biceps strain and other injuries.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told reporters that Stanton is unlikely to return to the field during the month of July, and will not travel with the team to London for the upcoming series with the Boston Red Sox.

In a corresponding move, the Yankees called up outfielder Mike Tauchman to replace Stanton on the active roster, opting to pass over calling up Clint Frazier, who is likely on his way out of New York as we approach the trade deadline.
