Yankees: Giancarlo Stanton will be out until August

Bad news for the New York Yankees

Giancarlo Stanton, who was placed on the disabled list on Wednesday and will miss the Series in London over the weekend, is likely to miss the entire month of July, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said on Thursday.

Cashman said it would "take some time" for Stanton to return to action and said he would most likely do so in August. If he's able to do it before, it would be an extra for the Yankees.

Stanton, who left the New York game against the Blue Jays on Tuesday, has a strained ligament in his right knee. Yankees manager Aaron Boone said at the time that Stanton will be evaluated again in 10 days.

After playing in just six games after spending more than two months disabled, he has been replaced on the roster by Mike Tauchman. In addition, the Venezuelan Thairo Estrada will be the 26th player of the Yankees on the roster for the special series in England.

Stanton hurt himself on Tuesday when he slipped into third base.
