Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he's "confident" that Stanton will be available to start in the outfield during the club's two-game set in Miami that begins Tuesday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton has been dealing with hamstring tightness for a little over a week, resulting in the Yankees deploying him exclusively at designated hitter for the club's past 11 games. It sounds like the injury is still affecting Stanton on some level, but the Yankees seem optimistic that he'll be able to play the field without major limitations during the interleague matchup.

Stanton went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a pair of runs in Saturday's victory over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton launched his 32nd bomb of the year with a fourth-inning shot off Sean Reid-Foley. He has seven homers in his last 12 games. He also singled and scored on Miguel Andujar's third-inning double.

Stanton went 2-for-4 with two doubles and one RBI in the 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees were held to seven hits and Stanton provided the only RBI against a strong Rays pitching performance. The 6-foot-6 slugger has knocked four doubles over his last three games, giving him 57 extra-base hits and an .880 OPS in 532 plate appearances. However, he did strike out again, giving him a whopping 158 on the season.

Stanton went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a walk and a pair of runs in Saturday's victory over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The homer, Stanton's 29th of the year, opened the scoring in the first inning off Drew Hutchison. He also singled and scored in the seventh. Stanton is very unlikely to get anywhere close to the 59 homers he hit last season, but he only needs nine more the rest of the way to post the second-highest total of his career. A second straight season with at least 40 home runs is very much within reach.

Manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Stanton's hamstring tightness has not subsided since he began feeling it a week ago, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

This issue has forced Boone to play Stanton primarily in the DH spot, which is where he's spent five of the past seven games. Unsurprisingly, he's listed as the Yankees designated hitter for Saturday's game against Texas as well. Though he's clearly fighting off the discomfort, it hasn't impacted Stanton's play, as he's gone 8-for-29 (.276 average) with three home runs and eight RBI over those past seven games.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton broke open the game with his sixth career grand slam, turning a tie game into a 6-2 Yankees lead in the eventual four-run win. The reigning NL MVP has gone deep in consecutive contests to give him 27 homers on the year, and he ranks fifth in the American League with 73 RBI.

Stanton went 2-for-6 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's extra-innings win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton's two-run homer -- his 26th of the year -- came in the 10th inning off Tyler Danish in a tie game. This was Stanton's fourth multi-hit game in his last six contests, and his slash line now sits at .279/.343/.513 on the year. Stanton has the third-most strikeouts (147) in the majors, but he nonetheless ranks within the top 10 in home runs, runs (70) and RBI (69) among MLB outfielders.

Stanton has been limited to designated-hitter duties for the Yankees' last three games due to a tight left hamstring, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton was spotted with ice wrapped around the hamstring after contests Friday, Saturday and Sunday, suggesting that the leg issue might still limit his mobility heading into Monday's series opener against the White Sox. Fortunately for the Yankees, having the DH spot available has allowed the team to keep Stanton's powerful bat in the lineup while he works through the discomfort. The injury hasn't seemed to provide any complications at the plate, with Stanton going 4-for-12 with a pair of doubles over the past three games.

Stanton went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Game 1 of Saturday's twin bill against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton cut the deficit to four in the fifth inning, but the Royals would ultimately roll to a 10-5 victory. The 28-year-old has gone 6-for-18 with a double, a home run and six RBI over his previous five games. Stanton is slashing .280/.347/.515 through 102 games during his first season in the Bronx.

Stanton will man right field and bat second against Kansas City on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton will move up in the order after Aaron Judge (wrist) was placed on the 10-day DL prior to Friday's contest. Judge had been a fixture in the two-hole all year, starting 97 of 101 games for the Yankees in that spot of the order. This likely won't impact Stanton too heavily as the 28-year-old has been occupying the cleanup position recently, but this should give him a couple extra at-bats over the next few weeks.
