Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Expected back in September

General manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that he expects Stanton (knee) to be able to return in September, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

The 29-year-old is eligible to return from the 60-day injured list Aug. 25, but Cashman's update signals that Stanton will likely miss some extra time before returning to the major-league roster. He has resumed light baseball activities and is running up to 75-to-85 percent on the anti-gravity treadmill, but he could require a rehab assignment prior to his return. The Yankees have a firm grasp on the lead in the American League East, so the team likely will ensure his long-term health before rushing him back to the majors.
