New York - Another one bites the dust for the New York Yankees. A rough start to the 2019 season for the Yankees has only gotten worse after the team announced that Giancarlo Stanton has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a left biceps strain.
The outfielder was placed on the injured list one day after going 0-for-2 with three walks and two strikeouts against the Orioles on Sunday. Manager Aaron Boone tells reporters that Stanton initially felt discomfort following a swing in Sundays game. A post game MRI revealed a Grade 1 strain.
In his place, the Yankees called up outfielder Clint Frazier, who missed most of last season with a concussion, from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
