Tauchman 30th Yankee on IL; Stanton HRs in simulated game

DETROIT (AP) — Outfielder Mike Tauchman became the New York Yankees’ 30th player on the injured list this year, the most in the major leagues in at least 15 years.

The 28-year-old strained his left calf Sunday and is expected to miss the rest of the season. New York made the roster move retroactive to Monday

Acquired from Colorado on March 23, Tauchman hit .277 with 13 homers in 260 at-bats over 87 games. He is New York’s 15th player currently on the IL.

Major League Baseball said the Yankees’ total on the injured/disabled list is the most since at least 2004, topping the 28 for the Los Angeles Dodgers in both 2016 and 2017. Boston had 27 in 2012.

So, how do they keep winning with so many players with the consistency of Waterford crystal?

Stanton to increase batting practice ahead of return

NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton will head to the team’s minor league complex in Tampa, Florida, this week for batting practice, among the final steps before returning for the final weeks of an injury-wrecked season.

“I feel like he’s really starting to build some momentum and doing pretty well,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said before Wednesday’s homestand finale against Texas. “He’ll start getting regular at-bats this weekend and, hopefully, really starting to ramp him up.”

The 29-year-old slugger has been limited to nine games with the Yankees this year. He strained his left biceps on March 31 in his third game, strained a shoulder and calf during his rehabilitation and did not return until June 18. Just a week later, he strained the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during an awkward headfirst slide into third base.

Stanton is hitting .290 with one home run and seven RBIs. He took batting practice on Tuesday against reliever Dellin Betances, who hopes to return this month from a lat injury that has sidelined him since spring training.

Given that they got him in the sort of sweetheart deal that would have people banned from the game if the Commissioner had teeth, it seems churlish to now dump him in the middle of a hurricane….

Yankees are having a tough time explaining Giancarlo Stanton’s latest injury

Giancarlo Stanton’s return to the New York Yankees lineup has been delayed once again.

On Wednesday, the team announced its slugging designated hitter has been diagnosed with a mild left calf strain while on a rehab assignment with the Tampa Tarpons, the Yankees’ high A-Ball affiliate.

The new injury — Stanton’s third already this season — will extend his absence until mid-June. So far, Stanton has been limited to three MLB games this season. He’s gone 2-for-8 with seven walks, but has yet to hit an extra-base hit.

The Yankees were hoping to have Stanton back as early as this weekend. Now they’re dealing with a new injury that is proving difficult to explain.

I don’t know- “Giancarlo Stanton appears to be made of Waterford crystal, and 2017 and 2018 were fluke years in terms of his overall durability” seems to be a good-enough explanation to me.

Yankees’ bad luck continues as new injury delays Giancarlo Stanton’s return

For every piece of good news the New York Yankees have received on the injury front this season, it seems they’ve been hit with at least two tough breaks in response.

That was the case again on Wednesday. Shortly after catcher Gary Sanchez was activated from the injured list, manager Aaron Boone revealed that Giancarlo Stanton’s return will be delayed by a new injury.

The Yankees designated hitter has fully healed from the biceps strain that sent him to the injured list on April 1. While that’s encouraging, the bad news is that Stanton’s left shoulder is now sore. The new ailment required a cortisone shot, which guarantees he won’t return on the team’s current road trip.

To make matters worse, there’s a clump of dirt waiting outside Stanton’s house- it claims to be from Pittsburgh….

Derek Jeter on trading Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich: ‘We’re fixing something that wasn’t working’

Miami Marlins owner Derek Jeter has turned the team over quite a bit since taking over. When Jeter’s group first assumed control, the Marlins were blessed with talented youngsters like Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna. A few months later, those players were gone.

Why did Jeter feel it was necessary to make those moves? Because that core wasn’t winning.

Jeter sat down with Harold Reynolds of MLB Network to discuss those initial moves. Jeter tells Reynolds the team was struggling with those players, and that the ownership group was “fixing something that wasn’t working.”

One gets the feeling he spoke with Harold Reynolds because no one else would let him get away with that bulljive and bunkum….
