Giancarlo Stanton News
New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton went deep again Thursday night, hitting a two-run homer as part of a 3-for-4 day at the plate. Stanton has largely struggled in September, with a .692 OPS in 64 plate appearances, but he's now hit home runs in two of his last three games. That gives Stanton 28 homers, 49 runs scored, and 75 RBI to go with his .763 OPS this year. It hasn't been the campaign many hoped for from the slugger, but he still has time to contribute for the Yankees and fantasy managers alike.
New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton made his one hit count in Tuesday's 9-8 win over the Pirates, going 1-for-4 with a walk-off grand slam, a walk, and three strikeouts. Stanton lined a ninth-inning Wil Crowe offering just over the left-field wall with the bases loaded to give the Yankees the win. The veteran has had an up-and-down season, slashing .210/.295/.453 with 27 home runs and 73 RBI. Hopefully, he can get things going and finish the regular season strong for the Yankees and fantasy managers.
New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (foot) and third baseman Josh Donaldson are back in the starting lineup on Saturday against Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Corey Kluber. Stanton is serving as the designated hitter and is batting second after missing the last four games after he fouled a ball off his foot on Monday. Fantasy managers will want to get the power-hitting right-hander back into their lineups immediately. Donaldson was reinstated from the paternity list and will return to the lineup after missing the last three games following the birth of his child. He's starting at third base and hitting cleanup for the struggling Bombers. Hopefully for the Yankees, the return of both Stanton and Donaldson can get them going offensively.
New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton bounced back strong in 2021 after two injury-riddled seasons in the Bronx. Many fans and fantasy managers were skeptical that he could get back to his 2017 NL MVP form but he nearly did so, finishing fourth in AL MVP voting last year. He produced 35 homers and 97 RBI, second on the team behind only Aaron Judge, with a .273 batting average. His 64 runs scored might be disappointing and one can't help but think his R+RBI totals could have been higher if the Yanks' deadline acquisitions on offense had panned out better in the second half. As it stands, Stanton is back to his typical slugging excellence and still ranks among the very best in hard-hit rate and exit velocity. The only question with him on draft day is the ability to sustain good health, which doesn't currently seem to be an issue. He can't be completely trusted to put in full season which is why his ADP hovers just inside the top-100. Fantasy managers could get a first-round value at great discount, a massive headache rife with IL stints, or something in between, making Stanton a huge risk/reward pick.
