Giancarlo Stanton emphasized the significance of staying physically fit, “Just being able to stay in my legs, stay moving around better and just contributing,” Stanton said. “[The season] has been solid so far.

This season, Giancarlo Stanton has managed to stay healthy, a significant change from previous years when early injuries hampered his performance. By mid-May, his statistics reflect this improvement: a batting average of .236, nine home runs, and a 113 OPS-plus. Particularly impressive is his performance with runners in scoring position, where he’s hitting .323 with an OPS of 1.045.

Manager Aaron Boone commended Stanton’s consistent presence in the lineup, saying, “He’s been good. He’s been consistent. He’s given us that presence in the middle of the order, whether it’s in that four or five hole, depending on who we’re facing.” Boone attributed Stanton’s enhanced performance to his improved physical condition, which has kept him off the injured list and allowed him to contribute significantly. Stanton’s ability to stay fresh with occasional rest days, combined with his impressive bat speed—the highest in the majors at 80.6 mph—makes him a formidable player for the Yankees.

Teammate Carlos Rodon also praised Stanton’s impact, noting, “The guy’s a heck of a player. When he hits the ball and he makes contact, he does damage as you saw [Tuesday]. A guy like that in our lineup is obviously great to have. But as a pitcher facing a guy like that, it’s tough.”

With Stanton’s health holding up and his performance proving vital, the Yankees are optimistic about his contributions throughout the season.
