The New York Yankees decided to not to put outfielder Giancarlo Stanton in the lineup this past Monday against the Houston Astros.

Giancarlo Stanton has not stopped struggling to try to awaken his offense at the Yankee Stadium in the series against the reigning World Series champions.


The decision to scratch him out of the lineup was not due to the player hitting .202 at home, as explained by George King III of the New York Post.

No, not at all.But there is always the adjustment phase. While he goes through that, I know he has had his ups and downs already, he has been wildly productive. Over time and continuing to work at it and continue to get more comfortable and there will be that period I am confident he will take off.


Stanton's other problem would be against the right-handed hitters against whom he accumulates a .199 percentage, aggravating this percentage against Justin Verlander, Monday's rival, with .125 against him.

Stanton's hopeful numbers come on the other side against the left-handed pitchers with an average of .370 with 7 home runs and 15 runs produced in 54 at-bats.
