The Yankees got good news on Wednesday when it was revelaed that Giancarlo Stanton's strained biceps had healed. But that good news was canceled out by the bad news that Stanton was dealing with a new shoulder injury.
According to SNY's Andy Martino, the new shoulder injury is only expected to cost Stanton an additional week.
Stanton, who received a cortisone shot in his shoulder and is resting for a few days, said on Wednesday that his return would be delayed due to feeling some "residual stuff" in his left shoulder, according to the New York Times' James Wagner.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone later noted that Stanton has dealt with shoulder "stuff" in the past.
Stanton has missed the past 20 games with the biceps strain, having last played in the opening series of the season against the Orioles on March 31. He collected two hits in eight at-bats as well as seven walks during that span.
The Yankees could certainly use some outfield help soon, especially after Aaron Judge was the latest star player to hit the IL with a left oblique strain. Aaron Hicks is also still out.
Injuries have plagued this Yankees team early, and it showed last night with the outfield lineup of Mike Tauchman, Brett Gardner, and Tyler Wade filling in for Clint Frazier, who was sent for an MRI after tweaking his ankle two games ago.
