Giancarlo Stanton Adds to Already Impressive Yankees Injury List
The start of the MLB season hasn't begun yet but the New York Yankees seem to be picking up right where they left off injury wise. Only about a week into spring training and there are some big names for the Yankees that have been hit by the injury bug.
Starting pitcher James Paxton, underwent back surgery earlier this month and is expected to be out for three to four months. Pitcher Luis Severino has decided to undergo Tommy John Surgery to repair his partially torn ulnar collateral ligament. Two big blows to this Yankees rotation.
Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who I almost forgot was still on the Yankees, has been diagnosed with a grade 1 strain in his right calf. Since the start of 2019 Stanton has missed time with a strained bicep, strained shoulder, strained left calf, strained right PCL, and a strained right quad. Someone please teach him how to stretch. Please.
As for Aaron Judge, his injury seems to be the least scary as it seems as though he just has a sore shoulder and is gonna take time to make sure he is healthy before the season begins.
