Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton (calf) could miss start of season
New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is in danger of missing the beginning of the 2020 season, according to manager Aaron Boone.
"He will be down a bit," Boone said of Stanton. The 2017 National League MVP is coming off a 2019 in which he played just 18 regular season games, and while his Grade 1 calf strain doesn't seem to severe at the moment, it's still a worrisome sign nonetheless. If he is to miss time, Clint Frazier could be in line for more at-bats to start the year.
In 1,162 career games, Stanton has hit to a .268/.358/.547 slash line with 308 home runs and 785 RBI.
