Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton stepping up rehab assignments
The New York Yankees are closing in on the return of their two star sluggers.
The team announced Friday that Giancarlo Stanton is stepping up his rehab and being transferred to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, while Aaron Judge will begin his own rehab assignment with the team as well.
Earlier today, the Yankees transferred the rehab assignment for OF Giancarlo Stanton from Single-A Tampa to Triple-A @swbrailriders. Additionally, OF Aaron Judge will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A @swbrailriders tonight.

The Yankees had been talking about a potential return for Judge in time for their trip to London. That’s still two weeks away, giving them plenty of time to make that a reality. Barring any setbacks, it seems likely that they’ll be able to make that target date.
Judge hasn’t played since April 20 with an oblique injury. Stanton is working his way back from a shoulder injury, and has only played three regular season games in 2019.
