Thu Oct 519:02Giancarlo Stanton To Alter Stance In 2024?
New York Yankees hitting coach Sean Casey said outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton "is just a little careful" with his swing and should consider trying his old batting stance. The former MVP looked all kinds of lost during a dismal 2023 campaign that saw him slash a career-low .191/.275/.420 with 24 home runs, 13 doubles, and 60 RBI covering 371 at-bats (101 games). Stanton's albatross of a contract has him on the books for at least four more seasons with a full no-trade clause, so the Yankees will search for whatever answers they can find to help the five-time All-Star rediscover his form. Stanton is a way-too-early 2024 fantasy rebound candidate by default while bound to be carrying his lowest ADP in recent memory, but he's still likely to be a liability in the batting average and stolen bases categories.

Sun Oct 113:17Giancarlo Stanton Taking A Seat For The Season Finale
New York Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton is not in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Kansas City Royals. Unless he steps in as a pinch-hitter on Sunday, the 33-year-old will finish a wildly disappointing 2023 season with a .191/.275/.420 batting line to go along with 24 home runs and 60 RBI over 371 at-bats in 101 games. Kyle Higashioka is filling in as the Yankees designated hitter against Zack Greinke as the Royals on Sunday.
Fri Sep 2918:35Giancarlo Stanton To Sit Out On Friday
New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Kansas City Royals. This appears to be a routine rest day for the veteran slugger. Stanton has struggled this season, he's slashing .191/.275/.420 with 24 home runs and 60 RBI in 101 games. The expectation is that Stanton will play in the final two games of the regular season. In the meantime, Oswaldo Cabrera will cover right field and bat eighth versus right-hander Jordan Lyles on Friday.
Mon Sep 2512:58Giancarlo Stanton Not Playing Monday
New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton is getting the day off on Monday with the Arizona Diamondbacks in town. Aaron Judge is serving as the designated hitter and batting in the two-hole, while rookie Everson Pereira (hamstring) returns to left field and the nine-hole against Diamondbacks right-hander Merrill Kelly. Stanton is in a funk at the plate in the month of September, going 6-for-55 (.109) with four home runs, seven RBI, 25 strikeouts and seven runs scored in 15 starts. He has just two hits (one homer) and 13 strikeouts in his last eight starts since Sept. 12, so he's been out of the lineup three times in the last four games.
Tue Sep 1218:47Giancarlo Stanton To Sit Out For Nightcap
New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton is out of the starting lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Boston Red Sox. The veteran slugger went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts during the first game of the day. After that, the Yankees decided to give me a breather and let him have the night off. Aaron Judge will serve as the designated hitter, while Oswaldo Cabrera starts in right field versus right-hander Kutter Crawford on Tuesday.
Mon Sep 1114:36Giancarlo Stanton Hits Big Home Run Sunday
New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton hit a game-tying home run in the bottom of the 12th inning on Sunday in an eventual 4-3 win over the visiting Milwaukee Brewers in 13 innings. Stanton finished the day going 1-for-3 with the home run, two RBI, a run scored, two walks and a strikeout. The 33-year-old veteran slugger now has 23 home runs, 57 RBI and 42 runs scored on the year to go along with a .200/.282/.442 slash line. Fantasy managers can't count on Stanton to hit for average at this point of his career, and he's gone just 4-for-25 (.160) with three home runs, six RBI, 12 strikeouts and six runs scored in seven starts so far in the month of September.
Wed Sep 600:15Giancarlo Stanton Joins 400-Homer Club Tuesday
New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton made history in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Tigers. Stanton went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and three strikeouts. The 33-year-old now has 400 career HR and became the fourth-fastest player by games in Major League history to achieve that mark. This is his second consecutive season with a dip in average, but Stanton has still hit for plenty of power, slashing .205/.281/.448 with 22 HR and 55 RBI in 352 plate appearances. He should continue to offer fantasy value as long as he can hit the ball out of the park.

Sun Sep 316:50Giancarlo Stanton Taking A Seat Sunday Night
New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton is not in the starting lineup Sunday night versus the Houston Astros and right-hander Cristian Javier. Stanton went 1-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts and a run scored in Saturday's victory over Houston but will take a seat for the series finale while slugger Aaron Judge will handle DH duties for the Bombers on Sunday in Houston. It's been a disappointing season for the former NL MVP as Stanton is hitting just .204 with 21 home runs and a .723 OPS across 85 appearances, production that grades out 5% below the league average, as per his 95 wRC+.
Thu Aug 2418:00Giancarlo Stanton Tallies Four Hits In Loss To The Nationals
New York Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton went 4-for-5 with a double, a home run, and two RBI in a 6-5 loss to the Washington Nationals on Thursday. Stanton had himself a day at the dish, notching his first four-hit contest of the season. The 33-year-old made things interesting in the bottom of the eighth inning when he took reliever Jordan Weems deep for his 19th home run of the season to pull the Yankees within one run. The Nationals tacked on a run in the top of the ninth before Stanton notched an RBI single to score Oswald Peraza in the bottom of the frame. Unfortunately, for the Yankees, that would be as close as they got as they would go on to lose for the ninth time in the last 10 games. Stanton, who's been limited to just 77 games this year due to injury, is now slashing .204/.285/.444 with 19 home runs and 47 RBI over 279 at-bats. The Yankees now find themselves 10 games back of the third and final Wild Card spot in the American League.
Thu Aug 2418:00Giancarlo Stanton Breaks Out With Four Hits In Loss
New York Yankees designated hitter/outfielder Giancarlo Stanton went 4-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Washington Nationals. The 33-year-old needed a shot in the arm in a huge way on the heels of a dreadful 6-for-52 (.115) slump with just two extra-base hits in his previous 15 games. Stanton crushed an eighth-inning solo bomb to make it a one-run ballgame late. After Washington got an insurance run across, Stanton drove in one more during the ninth. It was his first outing of the year recording at least three knocks. The five-time All-Star remains a fringe hold in shallow leagues for his power prospects, but a woeful average and lack of speed significantly hinder the fantasy appeal. Stanton is now slashing .204/.285/.444 with 19 homers, 10 doubles, and 47 RBI in 312 trips to the dish this year.

Tue Aug 116:00Giancarlo Stanton Sitting Tuesday
New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is not in the team's starting lineup on Tuesday against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays. Aaron Judge is still serving as the designated hitter and batting second, while Jake Bauers is in right field and hitting leadoff against Rays right-hander Zach Eflin. Stanton has started the last 18 games, so it's a good time for him to take a little break after hitting under .200 over that stretch. The 33-year-old slugger continues to sacrifice contact for power. Stanton is currently hitting just .198 with a .274 on-base percentage, 14 home runs and 35 RBI on the season in 207 at-bats. In the month of July, he hit .198 (17-for-86) with seven homers, two doubles, 16 RBI and 12 runs scored in 23 games.
Sat Jul 1500:14Giancarlo Stanton Blasts A Two-Run Homer In Yankees Loss
New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton made a notable impact on Friday's game against the Rockies, going 2-for-4 at the plate. In the first inning, Stanton ignited the scoring at Coors Field by launching a powerful two-run home run off Austin Gomber. Later in the game, he started the sixth inning with a double. Unfortunately, despite his efforts, the Yankees lost 7-2. The 33-year-old power hitter is slashing .211/.281/.454. In 2023 he's smacked 10 home runs and logged 25 RBI in 167 plate appearances.
Sat Jul 816:30Giancarlo Stanton Blasts Two Homers
New York Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton put together a show during Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs. The 33-year-old blasted a 447-foot homer into the third deck during the opening frame. After that, Stanton took reliever Michael Rucker deep for a two-run shot in the fifth inning. This marked Stanton's first multi-homer game since May 12, 2022. The veteran slugger is now up to nine home runs on the year as he continues to struggle with the bat. Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come for Stanton.
Thu Jul 617:59Giancarlo Stanton Out Of Thursday’s Lineup
New York Yankees designated hitter/outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is missing from Thursday's lineup versus the Baltimore Orioles. It appears to be a routine day off for the 32-year-old. Billy McKinney (foot) returns to the lineup just in time to man right field and bat sixth vs. Kyle Bradish in Stanton's stead. Since coming off the injured list with a hamstring strain on June 1, Stanton is hitting a pitiful .161 (14-for-87) with just three home runs and nine RBI. The five-time All-Star next gets a weekend set with the Chicago Cubs, who Stanton went 3-for-10 with one homer, four RBI, and four walks across three games against them last year.

Sat Jun 2413:14Giancarlo Stanton Dropped To Fifth In The Lineup
New York Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton has been dropped to fifth in the batting order for Saturday's contest against the Texas Rangers. Stanton is mired in a horrible slump for pretty much the entire season but his last 15 games are particularly bad. He's slashing just .096/.190/.231 with two home runs over that span. The Yankees are rolling with Jake Bauers, Gleyber Torres, Harrison Bader, and Anthony Rizzo as their top four batters against Jon Gray and the Rangers.
Wed Jun 2116:12Yankees Resting Giancarlo Stanton Against Mariners
New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton will not start on Wednesday against the visiting Seattle Mariners. It's a good time for Stanton to take a day off, as he's gone hitless with seven strikeouts in 11 at-bats in his last three games. The 33-year-old All-Star slugger has six home runs in only 26 games this year because of missed time due to injury, but he's batting a lackluster .196 (19-for-97) with six walks and 28 punchouts in 105 trips to the plate for the Yanks. With Stanton getting a rest day, Willie Calhoun will serve as the team's designated hitter while batting in the three-hole against Mariners right-hander Luis Castillo.

Thu Jun 116:00Yankees Return Giancarlo Stanton From Injured List
The New York Yankees reinstated outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list on Thursday. The Yankees also reinstated right-hander Tommy Kahnle (biceps) from the 60-day injured list and moved left-hander Carlos Rodon (back) to the 60-day IL. Stanton is expected to return as the DH for the first game of a three-game set against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the road on Friday for the first time in seven weeks due to a left-hamstring strain. The 33-year-old slugger only played one minor-league rehab game, so fantasy managers may want to expect a little rust from Stanton upon his return. However, when he's on, he has the ability to carry fantasy teams with his elite power stroke.

Wed May 3119:58Giancarlo Stanton, Josh Donaldson To Rejoin Team Friday
New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) and third baseman Josh Donaldson (hamstring) will both fly to Los Angeles to join the team on Friday for the start of their three-game series against the Dodgers. Both players, as well as reliever Tommy Kahnle (biceps) are expected to be activated from the injured list. Stanton has been out almost seven weeks but will return as the DH after playing in just one minor-league rehab games, so fantasy managers may want to expect some rust. Eventually, the 33-year-old slugger will be mixed back into the outfield. When healthy, Stanton remains an elite source of power. The 37-year-old Donaldson has been out since early April and was looking washed up at the plate when he hit the IL, but he's expected to see regular playing time at the hot corner.

Wed May 3100:13Giancarlo Stanton Begins Rehab Assignment Tuesday
New York Yankees designated hitter/outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) began a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Somerset Tuesday, going 0-for-3 with a walk. The 33-year-old has been out since mid-April with a left hamstring strain, but he could potentially return to the Yankees as soon as this weekend at the Dodgers. Stanton was off to a decent start to the season before landing on the injured list, slashing .269/.296/.558 with four home runs and 11 RBI in 54 plate appearances. He has remained a solid source of power throughout his career when healthy, so fantasy managers will be pleased to see him return.
