Giancarlo Stanton (knee) could rejoin Yankees next week

Yankees manager Aaron Boone says Giancarlo Stanton (knee) could rejoin the Yankees during their home stand next week.

Fantasy Impact

Stanton has been limited to just nine game this season due to injuries. This report is certainly good news, however. If Stanton returned at the start of New York's home stand he would have at most 11 games to get ready for the playoffs.

Giancarlo Stanton expected back in September

Giancarlo Stanton (knee) is expected to be able to return in September.

Fantasy Impact

Stanton is eligible to return from the 60-day injured list Aug. 25, but will likely miss some extra time before returning to the major-league roster. Stanton has resumed light baseball activities and is running up to 75-to-85 percent on the anti-gravity treadmill, but could require a rehab assignment prior to his return. The Yankees have a sizable lead in the AL East and will most likely ease Stanton back into big-league action.
