Yankees reveal restrictions for Giancarlo Stanton, who won’t start season as everyday player

April 05, 2021 09:27AM
No, nothing is wrong. Stanton isn’t hurt again. After playing just 41 of 220 regular-season games from 2019-20 due to injuries, Stanton has been healthy since last October when he Marty McFly’d back to his 59-homer, NL MVP form mashing six homers in seven Yankees playoff games.

“I’m not going to probably play (Stanton) five days in a row. That is kind of what I told him. So I figured this was the best day to do that. Nothing more than that.”

That statement floored Flaherty.

“That got my attention because as a player I would hate to have limitations on how many games I’m going to play,” the one-time Yankees catcher said. “If Giancarlo Stanton is a hot hitter like he was in the postseason last year, you would hate to think that he’s not going to play five in a row when he’s swinging the bat well. I didn’t like that comment from Aaron Boone.”

Fellow YES Network analyst Jack Curry agreed … until getting a clarification that Stanton’s restrictions are temporary.

“I did a little digging,” Curry said during the Yanks’ pre-game show. “That’s to start the season. That is the way that they’re going to go initially, and that makes sense. Stanton coming out of spring training, they want to make sure a player that has had the injury history that he’s had has some built-in days off. But if he gets on a roll, the Yankees are going to want to have him in there.”
