Players: Giancarlo Stanton

NEW YORK (AP) New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton returned from the injured list and was in the lineup for Tuesday night's scheduled game against division rival Tampa Bay.

The 2017 National League MVP was to bat fifth and play right field. Stanton last appeared in a big league game on March 31, landing on the injured list a day later with a strained left biceps that later led to shoulder complications.

The 29-year-old star began a short-lived rehab assignment in mid-May before a sore left calf landed him right back on the shelf.

Stanton was 5 for 18 with four home runs and seven RBIs in five games for Tampa and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in his most recent rehab stint, which began a week ago and wrapped up on Sunday.
