The New York Yankees are in need of their sluggers to propel the offense forward, despite smashing the Tampa Bay Rays 13-5 to regain the lead in the division on Sunday afternoon.
The New York Yankees will hopefully get one slugger back soon:
Star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is inching closer to a return as he’s preparing to endure his first rehab game since injuring his left bicep. The injury led to a shoulder ailment that has kept him out for even longer, but he will give it a go with the Single-A Tampa Tarpoon on Monday night.
“I’m playing catch-up from the biceps injury, so I took a little step back,” Stanton told MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch on May 6. “[The diagnosis was] just give it some extra time. The biceps blowing out, the whole arm had to get strength to build with each other. Just give it more time.”

The return of Stanton and Aaron Judge in the lineup will hopefully take the team to another level, but they will have to continue forward without third-baseman Miguel Andujar who opted for season-ending surgery last week.
