On Monday the New York Yankees announced that Giancarlo Stanton has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a left biceps strain. Clint Frazier has been summoned from Triple-A as his replacement.
Currently Stanton is 2 for 8 (.250) with an MLB-leading seven walks in the early going this season. Stanton is already the eighth Yankee to land on the injured list in 2019, joining Dellin Betances (shoulder inflammation), Jacoby Ellsbury (hip surgery), Didi Gregorius (Tommy John surgery), Ben Heller (Tommy John surgery), Aaron Hicks (back), Jordan Montgomery (Tommy John surgery) and Luis Severino (shoulder inflammation)
In addition, CC Sabathia will be placed on the injured list Wednesday after he finishes serving a five-game suspension. He is working his way back following offseason knee and heart surgery.
