Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Sporting leaner physique
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton has lost about 20 pounds since last season, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Stanton's listed weight typically hovers around 245 pounds, so he remains an imposing figure despite the weight loss. The slugger indicated that the decision to become leaner was made in response to his struggle to stay healthy last season. "I had a lot of time to think over last year," Stanton said. "I just wanted to cover all my bases. I tried to figure out what was the best way for me to stay on the field. What's the best way to for me to progress? I thought I'd give this a try and be closer to the weight of my younger years." The drop hasn't affected Stanton from a power perspective -- he has already hit two home runs and two doubles in 25 at-bats after compiling three of each in 59 at-bats last season. Most importantly, Stanton has remained healthy in the early part of the campaign after playing in only 18 games in 2019.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Could remain at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton is healthy enough to play the outfield, but manager Aaron Boone prefers to keep him in the lineup as the designated hitter, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Stanton's DH duties were originally necessitated by his recovery from a calf injury, but his hot start at the plate and the team's considerable outfield depth have given Boone reason to consider keeping Stanton in the role permanently. Through six games, the slugger has racked up two home runs and six RBI while slashing .421/.542/.842.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Tallies three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, a run and an RBI against Baltimore on Thursday.

The slugger drove in the first run of the game with a single to left field in the first inning and subsequently came around to score on a Luke Voit grand slam. Stanton is off to a fast start this season, slashing .500/.600/1.000 with a pair of homers and six RBI through five games. He has also walked as many times as he has struck out (four).

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Clubs mammoth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double and a walk in Saturday's loss to Washington.

New York's offense couldn't get much going Saturday, but Stanton supplied a highlight-reel homer with a 483-foot blast to left field in the fourth inning. The slugger has gotten off to a fine start with home runs in each of his first two games of the campaign after going deep only three times in 18 contests last season.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Goes deep in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and an additional RBI in Thursday's win over Washington.

Stanton got his season started with a bang in the first inning, crushing a 459-foot homer to deep center off Max Scherzer. He got to Scherzer again in the fifth, driving in another run with a single to right field. After playing in only 18 games during an injury-riddled 2019 season, Stanton is looking to bounce back in the abbreviated 2020 campaign.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Participates in baserunning drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton took part in baserunning drills with the Yankees on Tuesday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Stanton battled a calf injury in spring training but reportedly feels back to full health. Per Kuty, the slugger was able to move from second base to home plate without incident Tuesday, further suggesting that the calf is no longer an issue. Still, Stanton is slated to open the season in a DH-only role as the team looks to play it safe following an injury-riddled 2019 campaign.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Feels 100 percent healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton, who is starting at designated hitter and batting cleanup in Monday's intrasquad game, said his calf feels 100 percent healthy, Marly Rivera of ESPN reports.

He said he only recently started feeling 100 percent healthy and that the Yankees have a good formula to get it right, with him starting at designated hitter for the foreseeable future. Even Aaron Judge (ribs), who is thought to be less healthy than Stanton, is starting in the field in this contest, so Stanton's spot at DH seems very secure.

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.
