Major League Baseball (MLB) New York Yankees giant Giancarlo Stanton (34) was placed on the injured list.
ESPN of the United States reported on the 17th (Korean time), “Stanton is showing symptoms of hamstring tension메이저놀이터. He may miss at least 4 weeks and up to 6 weeks.”
Stanton hit a two-run double in the seventh inning against the Minnesota Twins on the 16th and felt something wrong with his left hamstring while running base. Stanton, who entered second base, was immediately replaced by a large runner and left the ground, eventually being placed on the 10-day injured list that day.
Stanton is an MLB representative who hit 382 home runs in the big leagues. Although he possesses formidable strength, he has been plagued by injuries at every turn. He only played 110 games last season because of an injury, but he played only 13 games this season and was out of power. This injury is all the more disappointing because he has been showing off his good sense by recording hits and RBIs in two consecutive games.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said: “Obviously, Stanton has a great physique and works very hard to avoid injury. But unfortunately, another injury has happened to him. If we knew the answer, we would do it, but it’s frustrating that we don’t.” .
The departure of Stanton, who is leading the team in RBIs (11 RBIs) along with Franchi Cordero, is painful.
“Obviously the timing wasn’t good, and I know Stanton is frustrated,” Boone said. “But it could be an opportunity for other players. We can get through the crisis.”
The Yankees called up Oswald Peraza in place of Stanton. Ferraza is considered the future of the Yankees along with Anthony Volpi, the team’s top prospect. Boone said Feraza would be an option at shortstop and second base.
