Stanton won't start in the outfield during the series in Philadelphia this weekend, Pete Caldera of USA Today reports.
Stanton returned from a quad injury May 28 and the Yankees have continued to be cautious with the slugger. Part of that plan has been limiting Stanton to DH duty for now, and that will continue during the series in the National League park over the weekend. The 31-year-old will surely get some at-bats off the bench against the Phillies, however.
Stanton went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and three strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Twins.
Stanton recently went 16 straight games without a homer, but he has gone yard three times over his last contests, tallying eight RBI in the process. The slugger, who's not expected to play in the outfield during the weekend two-game series against the Phillies, already has 12 homers on the season and owns an .849 OPS through 187 plate appearances.
Stanton is not expected to play in the outfield during the team's weekend series against Philadelphia, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
The Yankees will travel to Philadelphia for a two-game set this weekend, so the club will be without the designated hitter. Though manager Aaron Boone noted that Stanton isn't likely to play in the outfield in this series, he didn't rule out the possibility when the Yankees face the Mets at Citi Field and travel to Miami and Atlanta later in the season.
Stanton went 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double and five RBI in Wednesday's 9-6 win over the Twins.
Stanton erupted for three extra-base hits, all off Randy Dobnak. Before his pair of homers Wednesday, Stanton went without a long ball in his previous 16 games. It was a much needed performance for the 31-year-old, as he was just 4-for-29 in his prior nine contests. He is slashing .267/.335/.509 with 11 home runs, 29 RBI and 18 runs in 182 plate appearances.
Stanton is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.
Stanton went 1-for-7 while starting the first two games of the series and will now retreat to the bench for the third time in six games. Stanton has not recorded a multi-hit performance since May 5, and per Lindsey Adler of The Athletic, manager Aaron Boone said that Stanton is still building up strength since returning from a quad injury May 29.
Stanton is not in the lineup Thursday against the Rays.
Stanton has been handled cautiously since returning from a quadriceps injury in late May, starting just four times in seven games. Aaron Judge will rest his legs as the designated hitter in his absence, with Clint Frazier starting in right field.
Stanton isn't starting Tuesday's game against the Rays.
Stanton will get a breather after he went 0-for-7 with two walks and four strikeouts across the last two games. Aaron Judge will serve as the designated hitter while Clint Frazier starts in right field.
Stanton will sit Saturday against the Tigers.
The Yankees won't ask Stanton to play twice in a row immediately after returning from a quadriceps strain. He wasn't exactly convincing in his first game back in action, going 0-for-5 with four strikeouts. Aaron Judge will rest his legs as the designated hitter in his absence.
Stanton went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in Friday's loss to the Tigers.
It was an unceremonious return for the slugger, who missed over two weeks due to a strained left quadriceps. Stanton struck out in his first at-bat and followed with three more whiffs over the course of the contest, the most significant of which was a strikeout with the go-ahead run at third base and one out in the ninth inning. There is likely still some rust to shake off following the long absence, but it's worth noting that Stanton had been struggling prior to the injury, collecting only three hits in his last 22 at-bats.
Stanton (quadriceps) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.
The 31-year-old has been sidelined by a strained left quadriceps since May 13, and he'll rejoin the active roster ahead of Friday's series opener at Detroit. Stanton has a .282/.347/.534 slash line with nine homers and 24 RBI this season, though he was 3-for-22 across his last six games before landing on the injured list.
Stanton (quadriceps) is expected to be activated from the injured list Friday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
The injury has sidelined Stanton since May 13, at which point he was in a 3-for-22 slump with no home runs in that six-game span. Even so, the slugger will slot in near the top of New York's lineup and figures to re-establish himself as a premier power-hitting threat.
Stanton (quadriceps) will run and hit Tuesday but won't be activated off the injured list, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Previous reports indicated Stanton could return from the injured list when first eligible Tuesday, but he's at least a day or two behind that schedule. He doesn't seem to have suffered a setback, however, so it shouldn't be long before he's back in the lineup.
Stanton (quadriceps) took batting practice on the field Sunday and could return from the injured list Tuesday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
The Yankees have an off day Monday, so a decision on whether to activate Stanton after a minimum IL stay will likely wait until Tuesday. Manager Aaron Boone was noncommittal but optimistic about the possibility, indicating that Stanton is "tracking in the right way." "We'll see where we're at Tuesday," Boone added.
Stanton (quadriceps) could be activated during the Yankees' upcoming series versus Toronto, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
The slugger is eligible to return from the injured list Monday, which lines up with the team's first contest of a three-game set starting Tuesday against the Blue Jays. Stanton is reportedly doing well in his recovery, so a minimum IL stay is certainly a possibility. He'll likely resume full-time DH duties upon his return.
Stanton (quadriceps) took part in weight-room activities in addition to indoor batting Tuesday and is expected to return May 25, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
The slugger was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday, but the move was retroactive to May 14. The Yankees are off May 24, so Stanton's earliest possible return date is next Tuesday against Toronto. Given his ability to already lift weights and swing the bat, the veteran's injury doesn't appear to be particularly severe. He has nine home runs and 24 RBI in 131 at-bats this season, so a quick return would be a major boon to the Yankees' offense.
Stanton was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained left quadriceps Monday.
Stanton's numbers are as strong as ever this season, as he's hitting .282/.347/.534 with nine homers and an incredible 65.9 percent hard-hit rate, but injuries are unfortunately never very far away for the slugger. He missed the entirety of the weekend series against the Orioles and will now be out for at least another week. Whether or not he'll be able to return after a minimum-length stay remains to be seen, though Stanton's health track record doesn't give much cause for optimism. Miguel Andujar could be the primary beneficiary of his absence, as he's started in the outfield in each of the last two games, with Aaron Judge serving as the designated hitter.
Stanton (quad) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles.
Quad tightness led to Stanton's scratch from Friday's lineup and he will miss a third straight start as a result of the injury. While manager Aaron Boone said initially that he thought Stanton would only be down "a couple days," he's now saying he "hopes" Stanton is available during the team's upcoming series in Texas, per Marly Rivera of ESPN.com.
Stanton (quad) is not in Saturday's lineup against the Orioles, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Left quad tightness kept Stanton out of Friday's contest and it appears the designated hitter is not quite ready to return. The Yankees figure to exercise caution in timing Stanton's return, given his essential role in the team's offensive success.
Manager Aaron Boone said after Friday's game that Stanton (quad) could be "down a couple of days," but Boone isn't concerned about it being anything long-term, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.
Stanton was scratched from Friday's lineup with left quad tightness, which Stanton felt during an at-bat in Thursday's series finale in Tampa Bay and again during warmups Friday, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com notes. It sounds like Stanton will need at least one more day, and with Aaron Hicks (wrist) also injured, the Yankees may need to make a roster move to add an outfielder ahead of Saturday's game.
Stanton was scratched from the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles with left quadriceps tightness.
Stanton has had mostly good luck on the injury front so far this season, but this quad issue will cost him at least one start. Gary Sanchez will DH and bat cleanup against righty Dean Kremer.
