NEW YORK – The blows to the outfield depth of the New York Yankees continue.
One day, after losing their season-opening series to Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees announced Monday that they are out-teaming Giancarlo Stanton on the court with a 10-day list of injured left biceps.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Stanton will be completely closed for the next 10 days. Afterwards he is allowed to start his rehab.
"Hopefully we'll get him back sometime this month," Boone said.
Stanton is the third Yankees outfielder to be on the injured list this season. together with Aaron Hicks (lower back) and Jacoby Ellsbury (hip / plantar fasciitis).
The Yankees also placed infielder Miguel Andujar, runner-up of AL Rookie of the Year last season, on Monday's 1
Yankees outfielder just wanted peace and quiet. However, his doctor had a very different idea: turn it to 11.
Outfielder Clint Frazier will also be recalled from Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre and will replace Stanton in the active squad. New York opens a series in the Bronx against the Detroit Tigers on Monday.
Frazier was out of the starting lineup for the Yankees for Monday's game, but Boone said the 24-year-old would play "a lot" as long as Stanton plays out.
"This was the opportunity I wanted last year," said Frazier, who moved back and forth between Triple-A and the big leagues last season while battling concussion in the spring.
Stanton played on Sunday at 7-5 loss, making three walks and painting twice. Stanton felt the discomfort during his third strike in a 3-1 draw. Boone described the swing as "funky".
Despite the inconvenience Stanton continued playing and ended the game.
"I was not sure if it was a spasm or something more important," he said. [19659002ApostgameMRIshowedasortofvariety1
"I do not like it at all," Stanton said, being hurt. "I worked for six weeks [in spring training] to get here, plus the off-season, so this would have been much more likely to spring training, but here we have it."
The former National League MVP beats. 250 with seven walks in three games this season. Last year Stanton appeared in 158 games for the first time in pinstripes. He struggled through a thigh injury during the year as the Yankees went through another season of wear in the field.
This is the first time since August 2016 that Stanton is listed in an Injury Report.
Boone told Hicks that he received two cortisone shots in his back during late spring training and continues to provide consistently positive updates from his rehab. The infielder has increased his core and rotation activities, but he has not started any baseball activities yet. They could start this week.
If Hicks can continue his baseball work, he will have to do a "spring training" because he has received so few thugs before he was kicked in the back on March 1 due to bottlenecks. Hicks played in only four games this spring and made 10 record appearances. It is unclear how long his version of an extended spring training will last when he starts.
Although Ellsbury came to the Yankees at his facility in Tampa, Florida in the spring of spring, he was slowly released back into baseball activities after missing out on all sorts of injuries last season. The Yankees have not said how long they think it will be until they get back into the big league club. Like Hicks, he recovered in Tampa.
In Frazier, the Yankees add a cornerstone that suffered its own injuries in 2018. During a spring training game, Frazier hit his head as he tried to catch an opponent's ball on the wall. He was diagnosed with a concussion and had recurrent symptoms throughout the season before being closed in August.
Frazier was released during the offseason to return to full activity, and he participated in spring training. In 18 games in the Grapefruit League he fought 0.43 with an OPS of 473, three doubles and eight RBIs.
Having been left behind in the spring training of the miniliga in the last two weeks, his offense has arrived. Last week, Frazier had a 5-5 game that turned heads throughout the organization.
"He tears the blanket off the ball," Boone said.
Frazier attributes his recent improvements to a simpler approach to plate.
"Just kept my mind clear and tried to play as much baseball as I could and not play any brain games with myself," Frazier said. "I made some mechanical adjustments that seemed to me simplified on the plate, and I had a really good, strong performance towards the end of the camp."
The Yankees Front Office has never been criticized in the offseason Despite the recent depth problems, Bryce Harper was a real player in Bryce Harper's release. The team felt comfortable going into the season with the players. Last week, when the Yankees broke camp, they traded with the Rockies against outfielder Mike Tauchman, a mostly unknown but versatile defender with only 52 MLB experience.
Tauchman starts on Monday instead of Stanton in the left field
