‘It seems to be part of his game’

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is grappling with how to handle the future of outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who has been plagued with recurring injuries. Cashman is realistic about Stanton’s injury woes, expressing that it is almost a certainty that the slugger will be sidelined at some point next season due to injuries. This is not a new phenomenon for Stanton, who experienced a career-low .191 batting average last season after playing in just 101 games due to a hamstring injury.

The former NL MVP has struggled with various lower body injuries since his MVP season in 2017. In recent years, Stanton has missed significant playing time due to a bicep strain, MCL injury, and hamstring injuries. Not only does Cashman express concern about Stanton’s historical injuries, but he also raises alarms about the outfielder’s speed and agility, particularly after observing a lack of effort in base running during a game against the Houston Astros. Stanton has also been deemed slow on the bases and in the outfield, which has further fueled concern within the Yankees’ camp.

Cashman has acknowledged that the team has been tirelessly working with Stanton to address these issues with no significant improvements. Even though Stanton had a rough season at the plate, both he and Cashman are hopeful that he can rectify his performance woes during the upcoming offseason. Despite the certainty of Stanton encountering injury troubles, Cashman is confident that if their batting issues can be resolved, the Yankees will still have a formidable player in Stanton.
