This isn’t good. The Yankees lifted Giancarlo Stanton in favor of Mike Ford in the top of the sixth inning against Rays’ lefty Jalen Beeks. It’s not clear if Stanton is hurt, but it’s a fair assumption at the moment until we hear differently. Giancarlo did run the bases in the fourth inning, which may be the culprit.

Giancarlo Stanton left tonight’s game with a tight left hamstring #yankees— Meredith Marakovits (@M_Marakovits) August 9, 2020
Update, 8:32 p.m. EDT:
In his postgame press conference, Aaron Boone told the media that Giancarlo will undergo an MRI and is likely headed to the injured list. Ugh.
