CHICAGO – Despite reports that Giancarlo Stanton may be ready to face big shots after four league games on the way back from the injured list, the Yankees will not be seduced to activate it.
"Trying to be disciplined enough with the plan, making sure we feel now that it feels good, that's a good thing," manager Aaron Boone said. of Stanton, who played 0-to-4 and played on the right court for Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre on Saturday night after a 1-on-3 with a homestay on Friday against Durham. In five re-education posting matches, including three at Single-A Tampa, Stanton hit 352 (6 of 17) with five homers and eight RBIs. "Now it's about building it up and withstanding the rigors back-to-back and the way the body reacts to that. He was obviously coming back from soft tissue, making sure he was running a lot and doing a different kind of defense work. No real temptation knowing [a return] is around the corner. "
Stanton played on the right court Friday night and was left Saturday night. On April 1, he injured his left bicep on the left tendon and developed a shoulder problem that was followed by a calf problem.
If nothing happens, Stanton should be activated on Tuesday.
Aaron Judge was also in training and scored a goal against 4 for SWB on Saturday night as DH and led the way in his second rehab match after a 0-in-4 scoring with three strikeouts. The plan calls for the judge to play the outside field on Sunday.
Luis Severino was lugged 75 feet on Saturday and could be headed to a mound session here a week.
"If things are going well, maybe next week," said pitcher Larry Rothschild coach before the Yankees' 8-4 win over the White Sox.
Severino opened the season in IL with an inflammation of the right rotator cuff and later developed a muscle along the dorsal.

CC Sabathia's pursuit for his 250th career victory will continue Wednesday against the Rays at Yankee Stadium, with the possibility of a first place in the AL East.
Since she defeated the Orioles on May 22nd and was on the injured list the next day with a fiery knee, Sabathia, 38, made three starts and lost them all.
On May 22, the future Hall of Fame was 3-1 with a 3.48 ERA and supported a rotation that has not yet seen Severino's old game this season. But in the following three starts, Sabathia is 0-3 with a 6.89 ERA and his hitters hit a very good .375 against him.
On June 2, against the Red Sox, Sabathia allowed three runs in six sets, setting a record for the season, and absorbed defeat in a quality start.
But in the last two outings, including Friday night's game against the White Sox at the Guaranteed Rate Field, Sabathia has paid the price so that his fastball does not show up.
"It just was not there. It did not change much, 'Sabathia said his leading pitch played a big role in his transformation from power pit specialist to finesse specialist and his career. "I have to find something [before] Wednesday & # 39;. & # 39;
"I feel like I have to play with the ball in my hand," said Sabathia, who allowed six points, five earned, 10 hits in 4 ½ / ₃ of earnings, which is the shortest of his 11 starts. "When my embrace comes off, everything goes off. I will work from the beginning to make sure that's where it needs to be. "
When Luis Cessa was introduced in the spring to train in the spring, he was either going to force the Yankees to take a prolonged succession, or probably leave for another organization, the 27-year-old right-hander running out of time. 39; options. He stuck and was very good from March 31st to May 28th, when he appeared in 15 games, posted a points average of 3.16, caught 30 and walked 11.
Since 2 June, however, Cessa has been hit hard. In five games, he worked five innings and allowed 12 earned runs (20.25) with batting hitters averaging .483 against him.
"He fought a bit with the first knock. It's hard to start from behind, "said Boone. "Too often lately, this is the first ball and try to get back into the count. Advancing in the countdown is essential for any pitcher and for Luis, too. "
Having started with the Gleyber Torres circuit in the sixth inning of an 8-7 loss to Kansas City, the Yankees have now dominated in 18 straight games. This is the second place in the history of the club with the Yankees of 1961. The franchise record of 25 consecutive games with a circuit was established in 1941.
