Giancarlo Stanton out of ALCS Game 2 lineup with quad issue

Giancarlo Stanton

After an injury-riddled season, Giancarlo Stanton’s issues are extending into the postseason.

Stanton is out of the starting lineup for Game 2 of the ALCS on Sunday against the Houston Astros. Manager Aaron Boone cited a quad issue, but could not offer many details.

Obviously, this throws the rest of the ALCS into doubt for Stanton. It comes after a series of injuries that limited the outfielder to just 18 regular season games. This is simply going to be dependent on how the injured quad responds. He’ll have two days off before Game 3 in New York, and the Yankees should know more by then.
