Yanks’ Stanton on 10-day injured list with strained biceps

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

While the threat of surgery remains, Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar says he does not believe he'll need to go under the knife, as Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Andujar injured his right shoulder diving back into third base on a back-pick attempt by the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday.

The team announced today that Giancarlo Stanton was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained bicep, and they would be calling up Clint Frazier in the meantime.

The Yankees have a quality replacement third baseman in DJ LeMahieu, which means Wade will get playing time whenever Troy Tulowitzki rests.




We do know that Stanton has started the season 2-for-8 with no extra base hits and four strikeouts in his first three games.

This is obviously terrible news for the Yankees. If that doesn't work, he could require surgery that would "compromise his season", Boone acknowledged Monday night. NY recalled outfielder Clint Frazier from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to replace Stanton on the major league roster. When CC Sabathia completes his five-game suspension, he will make it 10.

New York's injured list already included pitchers Luis Severino, Dellin Betances, Jordan Montgomery and Ben Heller, shortstop Didi Gregorius, center fielder Aaron Hicks and oft-injured outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who last played in 2017. He hit.276/.321/.428 with a career-high 15 home runs in 128 games for the Colorado Rockies last season. Boone had told him near the end of the exhibition season not to push it.

Tyler Wade had a strong Spring Training for the Yankees, but hasn't played any Minor League baseball yet, as Scranton begins play on Thursday (4/4). Be sure to tune in Tuesday at 6:35 p.m. ET for another game against Detroit.
