Giancarlo Stanton has been doing baseball activities and started running up to about 80 percent, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reported. According to Boone, “Giancarlo has had a really good several days. Think he ran some bases (Friday). Kind of half-speed running. He’s up to about 80 percent running. He’s been doing a lot of baseball activities as far as hitting off the high-velocity machine, throwing. So he’s probably, possibly a little head of Judgey.”

Stanton has been on the injured list since August 9th with an injured left hamstring.
Aaron Judge was placed back on the Injured List with a calf injury on August 28th. Recently, he’s begun ramping up baseball activities and appears to be progressing well. Boone spoke on this saying, “He’s had a couple of good days and started to ramp up a little bit. I think Monday we’ll start the real progression as far as a lot of baseball activities, more aggressive with some of the running and the buildup.”
While the Yankees are preparing for two games at Camden Yards, there’s a positive sign at Yankee Stadium. Aaron Judge is working out on the field right now. #Yankees

Both Stanton and Judge seem to be progressing well which is some of the better news the New York Yankees have had recently. After dropping three out of four games to the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees have hit a low spot of the season. They need to figure things out soon and having these two sluggers back in the lineup will obviously be huge for the team. Fingers crossed both Stanton and Judge will be back soon and healthy.
