New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton has played just three games this season. While he was put on the 10-day Injured List on April 1, there’s been little to no news regarding his status.
The situation got even stranger Tuesday when Bryan Hoch of MLB.com tried to get clarification on Stanton’s injury. Manager Aaron Boone revealed Stanton has been dealing with a shoulder issue, but didn’t go into detail regarding the injury.
I tried to ask Aaron Boone about what is going on with Giancarlo Stanton. He was vague: pic.twitter.com/t6fLSGclae— Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) May 14, 2019
Initially, Boone said Stanton was dealing with a shoulder injury “now.” Stanton was originally placed on the IL with a biceps injury. After Hoch asked for specifics, Boone said he doesn’t know the exact diagnosis, but that there’s some “lingering shoulder stuff that [Stanton’s] trying to get knocked out.”
When asked whether Stanton is dealing with a shoulder tear, Boone gives his most confusing answer.
