BOSTON – Back again in the Bronx, Giancarlo Stanton expended the weekend ramping up his baseball action.
Monday is scheduled to be a full training working day for the injured Yankees slugger, who could possibly commence a slight league rehab assignment as early as Tuesday.
By this weekend at Yankee Stadium, Stanton could be in the lineup in opposition to the second-spot Toronto Blue Jays.
And that would be a helpful growth for a crew in need to have of a jolt.
At minimum, it’ll deliver a tougher lineup for opposing pitchers to navigate.
Sunday evening at Fenway Park, Michael Wacha toyed with the Yankees by 7 innings of two-strike pitching in a 3- triumph by the last-location Crimson Sox.
So ended a rough, 2-7 street vacation by the AL East-top Yankees (72-43), who were being shut out three situations more than people nine online games – at the time every single at St. Louis, Seattle and in the Back again Bay.
Stanton has been on the IL retroactive to July 24, owing to a left Achilles strain. And considering the fact that that time, the Yanks have a 7-12 history, compounding the truth that Aaron Decide just can’t do it by yourself.
Yankees starter Jameson Taillon was mainly efficient against the Sox, lasting seven innings and yielding a few runs – two coming on a sixth-inning homer by Rafael Devers.
And when Josh Donaldson grounded out in the ninth, the video game ended in ridiculously limited two several hours and 15 minutes.
