Stanton Headed To 10 Day IL
To say the New York Yankees' season has not started according to plan might be one of the biggest understatements so far this MLB season. Not only is CC Sabathia, Luis Severino, Aaron Hicks and Delin Betances currently missing time due to injury but now Outfielder and DH Giancarlo Stanton is being added to the 10 day Injury List. Stanton has a "strained Bicep" I can hear Goz pretending he has also strained his bicep doing 1,000 curls in my head.
I'll skip my rant about the DL vs the IL for now but this is either a blessing in disguise or a sign of what could be a very long year in the Bronx. On the positive side, calling up Clint Frazier could be huge for the team. The young outfielder has the tools to be great but hasn't been able to put it all together in the big leagues so far. There are reasons like concussions and a log jam in the outfield but maybe he can get it rolling now. The negative angle is "how many injuries can this team withstand?"
