Giancarlo Stanton News
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.
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.
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.
It was a familiar story for Giancarlo Stanton in 2022. He missed time with achilles and calf problems, playing just 110 games and since playing 158 games in 2018 (his first season with the Yankees), Stanton has now played in a total of 290 games out of a possible 546 (53%). He has played in 77% of games over the last two seasons, so there is reason to believe he may still be able to contribute enough to be a fantasy asset and when you consider he had 31 homers, 78 RBI, 53 runs and no stolen bases with a .211/.297/.462 slash line last year. Stanton didn't appear to be healthy during the final weeks of the season and after returning in August from achilles tendonitis, he hit .165/.266/.367 over 30 games, yet still homered seven times. Stanton hit .237/.319/.516 with 24 homers in 76 games during the first half of 2022, which should act as a reminder of what he can do when healthy. But he's not been able to stay healthy long enough to provide fantasy value since 2018. Stanton will start the season eligible as an outfielder and with an ADP of ~148, there is value to be had in 2023. If he can remain healthy, Stanton should provide significantly more value than at his ADP. But that's a massive 'if' right now.
