Yankees welcome back injured slugger Giancarlo Stanton

Masahiro Tanaka

New York Yankees designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion turned his first hit with the Yankees into his 402nd career home run.

"I was so close".

Stanton has been out of the Yankees' lineup due to various injuries since the beginning of April.

"As long as I'm here and as long as I get an opportunity to step on the field with a group of guys who I feel like are my brothers, I'm going to continue to go out and play hard each and every day and leave it all out there", Maybin said. He had appeared in only three games, batting.250 (2-for-8) with one run scored, and no homers and no RBI. He then sustained a left shoulder strain while rehabbing the initial injury.

"It's been a long time". The Rays lost for the fifth time in seven games and are 6-17 in the Bronx since the start of the 2017 season. The biceps connects to the shoulder in two places.

Then, almost a month later, in an extended spring training session at the Yankees' complex in Tampa, Florida, he was hit by a pitch in his left knee.

"We're just going to listen to the body", Stanton said.

Says a source, "Aditya Chopra was clear that nothing about the film should get out before the first official asset comes out". Super 30's box office collection is perhaps an indicator of how the movie is likely to perform in the coming days.

Stanton finally was fully healthy a few weeks ago, and he looked it homering five times in six recent rehab games with high-A Tampa and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

"It's just having the quickness, me getting the barrel there", Stanton said about his minor league production instilling confidence. "So we had to shut it down, get a cortisone shot, let that ease for a little bit". "So obviously the homers are the ultimate goal, but if I just squared up a couple of balls that's what I'm looking for".

The 29-year-old Stanton had 97 total home runs the previous two seasons.

NY shipped second baseman Starlin Castro and a pair of minor leaguers to Miami in exchange for the 6-foot-6 Stanton in December 2017, following an MVP season in which he hit a major league-leading 59 homers.

"The wind was swirling out there, so I just thought I'd get to the wall and maybe it'd come back", Stanton said. So no matter how physically ready (you are), once you get out there and start playing games you don't know how it's going to bounce back.

"We've got a lot of dynamic players and hitters, and certainly Giancarlo is one of those", Boone said. "So ease in the first week or two and go from there".

Acquired from Seattle on Saturday, Encarnación's first hit in pinstripes came in grand fashion, clubbing his AL-leading 22nd homer off Andrew Kittredge in the eighth.
