Giancarlo Stanton may miss start of season with calf strain
Just as it has in years past, the injury bug is biting the New York Yankees early.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone revealed Wednesday that Giancarlo Stanton suffered a calf strain during defensive workouts Tuesday, and could miss the start of the season as a result.
Giancarlo Stanton has a Grade 1 strain in his right calf, Aaron Boone says. He'll be down for a bit, and may not be built back up in time for Opening Day.

Stanton will really be hoping this is not a sign of more trouble to come. He was limited to just 18 regular season games last season due to various injuries, including a quad issue that bothered him in the postseason. Stanton was surely hoping for an injury-free season this year, but it looks like that goal is already off the table before we even hit March.
