Since April 23 Stanton is one of the best hitters in NY. However, an injury to his left leg knocked him out of action.
With a quarter of the calendar elapsed, the fight for the AL East title promises multiple emotions – at the moment the Red Sox, Blye Jays, Rays and Yankees are fully into the division crown. Unfortunately for the ninth of New York , the inconveniences do not give truce.
This Monday the ‘Manhattan Mules’ reported that they have placed Giancarlo Stanton on the 10-day disabled list for ailments in the quadriceps of the left leg.
Stanton was out of action during the Orioles-Yankees series, May 14-16. Given this, his return can take place on the 25th of this month, when he begins a three-game confrontation against Toronto.
To make up for Stanton’s resignation, manager Aaron Boone promoted Albert Abreu, who was in the triple A branch (Scranton / Wilkes Barres) of the club.
With Stanton’s deactivation, the Yankees lose their fourth player in recent days. Aaron Hicks is out of action with a wrist discomfort , Rougned Odor with knee ailments and Gleyber Torres tested positive for COVID-19.
Without Stanton in the lineup, the Yankees lose their third-best starter in terms of batting (.282 average) and their second-best home runner (9, three fewer than Aaron Judge). Plus, in the most recent three weeks, the 31-year-old has been a real threat at the plate: .378 / .432 / .689 and six home runs since April 23.
