New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says slugger Giancarlo Stanton is more likely to return in August than July after straining his right knee. Stanton went on the 10-day injured list with a strained posterior cruciate ligament Wednesday, barely a week after returning from a series of setbacks that sidelined him for almost three months. Stanton was hurt this time on a headfirst slide against Toronto on Tuesday night.
Stanton has played only nine games this season; he has been out with torn biceps and strains in his shoulder and calf. He is hitting .290 with one home run and seven RBIs.
