Giancarlo Stanton back in Yankees lineup

Associated Press

Giancarlo Stanton has been activated from the 10-day IL and will return to the Yankees starting lineup Saturday.

Stanton has been sidelined for almost two weeks with a right calf strain, but he’s returning to face the Detroit Tigers this afternoon.

The 32-year-old is slashing .285/.339/.523 in 2022 with 11 home runs, 35 RBI, and 15 runs.

Both season-long and daily fantasy managers won’t hesitate at all to insert Stanton back in the lineup today, especially facing pitcher Beau Brieske who carries an 0-4 record and 5.25 ERA.

Teammate DJ LeMahieu is not in the starting lineup for Saturday’s matchup.
