Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Should be ready to DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that Stanton should be DH-ready by Opening Day, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

This report seems optimistic on its surface, though the fact that Cashman said "DH-ready" specifically is a bit of an eyebrow raiser. Stanton has battled a series of lower-body injuries over the last year, most recently a calf injury. Reading between the lines, it seems he may still be limited in his mobility.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: No longer at team complex
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton has been staying home to help stop the spread of COVID-19, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports.

Stanton posted a video to his personal Instagram account Wednesday emphasizing his decision to stay home and encouraging others to do so as well. In early April the slugger was deemed eligible to work out at the team's training facility in Tampa as he was technically still rehabbing his strained right calf. However, manager Aaron Boone has indicated that Stanton is fully healed, thus he should be ready to go when play resumes.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Eligible to rehab at team facility
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (calf) will continue to be allowed to rehab at the Yankees' training facility in Tampa under Florida's stay-at-home policy, George A. King III of the New York Post reports.

While Florida governor Ron DeSantis' order requires most Floridians to remain at home, it makes some exceptions, including one for those in need of essential medical care. That will allow rehabbing players such as Stanton, Aaron Judge (rib) and Luis Severino (elbow) to continue to make use of the team's Tampa facility. It remains to be seen whether Stanton will continue to work out at the complex, however, as manager Aaron Boone deemed the slugger fully healthy earlier this week, per Lindsey Adler of The Athletic.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Deemed fully healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yankees manager Aaron Boone confirmed Wednesday that Stanton (calf) is fully healthy and will be ready to go for Opening Day, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. "He's pretty much over the hump," Boone said. "He's pretty much run aggressively and done the things necessary. If and when we begin spring training games, he would likely be ready to roll for that."

The Yankees are one of the big winners of MLB's decision to suspend its season at least eight weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic. The team now has a good chance to have three key players -- Stanton, Aaron Judge (rib) and James Paxton (back) -- available for Opening Day, when all initially appeared set to begin the season on the injured list. Look for Stanton to occupy his familiar spot in the heart of the order whenever MLB sets a firm target date for the start of the season.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (calf) would be playing in spring training games if they were being played, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Stanton's calf strain that he suffered back in February was expected to keep him out until sometime in April. The delayed start to the season means he should have no trouble making it back for whenever Opening Day ends up being, but he's apparently doing well enough that he's already healthy enough for exhibition game action. The slugger's stock should be rising again based on the fact that he won't be opening the season on the injured list, though whether or not he can remain injury-free remains an open question.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Takes on-field BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (calf) took swings on the field at the Yankees' spring-training complex Wednesday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Stanton was among a group of Yankees taking part in informal workouts at the George M. Steinbrenner Field complex in an effort to stay in shape during MLB's hiatus. Though he was originally expected to miss Opening Day, Stanton should be fully recovered from his right calf strain by the time the regular season gets underway.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: In line to return by Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (calf) could be ready to play by the start of the regular season, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Stanton suffered a Grade 1 right calf strain in late February and was originally expected to start the season on the injured list. However, MLB announced Monday that Opening Day will not take place for at least eight weeks, clearing a path for Stanton to be healthy for the start of the campaign. The slugger has been targeting a return in April, well before the new mid-May estimated date for the commencement of the regular season.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Takes live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (calf) completed a live batting practice session Wednesday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

While the on-field activity amounts to a step forward for Stanton, the real test for his strained right calf will likely come Thursday, when he's expected to resume running outside. The 30-year-old slugger had been working out on an anti-gravity treadmill in recent days, so he'll now see if he can run the bases and cut in the outfield without issue. Stanton remains unlikely to be ready to go for Opening Day, but he may be tracking toward only a brief stint on the injured list.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Running on field soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (calf) will run on the field within the next two days, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Stanton is working his way back from a Grade 1 calf strain he suffered in late February. It's unlikely that he makes it back before Opening Day, but he's been trending in the right direction. He's been able to run on a treadmill and hit off a tee in recent days.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Ramps up running
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Aaron Boone said Stanton (calf) ran at approximately 85 percent effort on an anti-gravity treadmill Sunday and also hit in the batting cage, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Stanton remains on track to begin the season on the injured list, but he at least looks to be in line for a shorter stint on the shelf than fellow slugging outfielder Aaron Judge (ribs), who won't even be ready to resume working out for another two weeks. The 30-year-old will build up to running on the treadmill at 100 percent speed and hitting outdoors before a more precise target date for his season debut comes into focus.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Resumes baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (calf) will resume throwing and hitting tee-and-toss Saturday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

He is also continuing to run on an anti-gravity treadmill in addition to resuming baseball activities. It's encouraging that Stanton is ramping up, but he is still doubtful to be ready for Opening Day.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Resumes running on treadmill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (calf) has started running on an Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill, Bryan Hoch of reports.

According to manager Aaron Boone, Stanton got up to six miles per hour on the treadmill, toeing the line between a brisk jog and a light run. While the increased activity is a good sign that Stanton's right calf strain is improving, the slugger remains doubtful to be ready for Opening Day.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Targeting April return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (calf) isn't expected to be ready to play by Opening Day, but he is expected to play at some point in April, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Stanton suffered a Grade 1 right calf strain in late February. His readiness for Opening Day was in doubt from the start, but the injury wasn't considered likely to keep him out all that long. It appears that his prognosis hasn't meaningfully changed one week later, though it remains to be seen if "some point in April" is closer to the beginning or the end of the month.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Opening Day at risk
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton's readiness for Opening Day is at risk after he was diagnosed with a Grade 1 right calf strain Wednesday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

The slugger suffered the injury during a defensive workout Tuesday. He'll be shut down for a few weeks, and while he's expected to get back on the field before the end of spring training, he may not have time to be fully built up by the start of the regular season. The Yankees will understandably be cautious with Stanton after injuries limited him to just 18 games last season. He's averaged 116 games per season over his 10-year career.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: No limitations in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton said Wednesday that he reported to spring training without any physical limitations after a full offseason to recover from an injury-plagued 2019 campaign, Bryan Hoch of reports. "I had a lot of different training. I didn't have much time off," Stanton said. "I got my rest, but I had to rehab the moment the season was over, and then by the time I was done rehabbing I had my normal offseason training."

Stanton appeared in just 23 games between the regular season and playoffs in 2019, missing time on account of biceps, shoulder, calf, knee and quadriceps injuries. His last appearance came in Game 6 of the ALCS against the Astros, when he suffered a Grade 2 right squad while running out a grounder. The 30-year-old had far from a spotless health record prior to 2019, but the fact that he's feeling good again could allow his ADP to climb steadily as draft season gets underway. Perhaps with an eye on ensuring that Stanton maintains better health this season, manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday that the slugger's time in the outfield will be "fluid." The skipper went on to suggest that Stanton's workload could be similar to 2018, when he started 72 games in the outfield and served as a designated hitter in 86 contests.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Grade 2 strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton had a Grade 2 quadriceps strain during the ALCS, Bryan Hoch of reports.

The 29-year-old missed several games during the ALCS with the strain in his right quad, while general manager Brian Cashman said that is was a Grade 2 variety that would have sent Stanton to the injured list in the regular season. The team wanted to keep Stanton available for the World Series if it was to advance, so the Yankees kept him on the active roster. The outfielder will likely need a few weeks before he's fully recovered, but he should have a normal offseason after he heals.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton is not in the lineup for Game 6 of the ALCS against the Astros on Saturday.

Stanton returned from a quadriceps injury to start Game 5 on Friday, but he didn't exactly prove his health, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Edwin Encarnacion returns as the designated hitter for Game 6.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: In lineup for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (quadriceps) will bat cleanup as the designated hitter Friday against the Astros for Game 5 of the ALCS.

Stanton had been on the bench since straining his right quadriceps while running the bases in the first game of the ALCS. He's apparently still not ready to take the field but will be able to hit, bumping Edwin Encarnacion to the bench.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Could start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (quadriceps) is feeling better and could start Game 5 of the ALCS against the Astros on Friday, Marly Rivera of ESPN reports.

Despite not starting in Game 4 on Thursday, Stanton is apparently feeling better and could start as the designated hitter Friday. Stanton ran the bases prior to Game 4 but did not run hard. The encouraging update could also signal that the 29-year-old might be available off the bench Thursday.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton (quadriceps) is not in the lineup for Game 4 of the ALCS against the Astros on Thursday.

Stanton will miss his third straight game with a right quadriceps strain, although he could be available off the bench if needed. The 29-year-old was running the bases prior to Game 4 but was not running hard, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Brett Gardner will shift to left field with Aaron Hicks starting in center field Thursday.
