It makes sense for the Yankees to give Giancarlo Stanton some outfield time

Photo by Thomas A. Ferrara/Newsday RM via The Bombers are built to avoid playing Stanton too much in the field, but he should still do it every once in a while Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton has suffered a rash of injuries in the last couple of years that have robbed him of some valuable playing time. The slugger was limited to 18 games in 2019 and while 2020 was shortened for everyone, he still only made 23 appearances. Since coming to the Yankees from the Miami Marlins, Stanton has suffered a left biceps strain, a right knee sprain, a strained right quad, a Grade...

With a deadened ball, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton are more important than ever

With a deadened ball, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton are more important than ever

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Even if others see a power reduction in 2021, the team’s two best power hitters probably won’t. Earlier this week, MLB admitted what we knew all along — they had the power to control the “juice” of the ball, to a certain extent at least, and were going to take steps to deaden it ahead of the 2021 season.
