MLB Yankees reinstate Giancarlo Stanton from IL

The New York Yankees reinstated designated hitter/outfielder Giancarlo Stanton from the 10-day injured list on Saturday.

Stanton, 32, had been on the injured list since May 25. The Yankees originally said Stanton was out with a calf strain but later changed it to ankle inflammation.

Stanton is batting .285 with 11 homers and 35 RBIs in 40 games this season.

The Yankees, who have a six-game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League East, posted a 7-2 record in his absence.

The move to activate Stanton comes one day after outfielder Miguel Andujar was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. According to multiple outlets Saturday, that move prompted Andujar to request a trade.

Andujar, 27, was batting .268 with two doubles and three RBIs in 12 games with the Yankees this season. He is a career .277 hitter in 244 games over parts of six seasons with the Yankees and has 34 home runs with 117 RBIs.
