Giancarlo Stanton’s 2020 season is not off to a great start.
After missing most of the 2019 season due to a litany of injuries, we learned today that Stanton may not be ready for Opening Day. He has a Grade 1 strain of his right calf that he sustained at the end of his workout yesterday while performing defensive drills.
Giancarlo Stanton has a Grade 1 strain of his right calf. Aaron Boone said he will be “up against it” to be ready for Opening Day.
With Stanton’s setback, the Yankees are now down 2 starting outfielders to start the season. Aaron Hicks is recovering from Tommy John surgery and is not expected to return until August. Aaron Judge has also been dealing with right shoulder soreness, although he could start playing in games next week.
Will we see Clint Frazier on the Opening Day roster?
