New York Yankees Star Inching Closer To Return

Giancarlo Stanton is another step closer to returning for the New York Yankees. The veteran outfielder is set to begin a rehab assignment on Saturday.

The Yankees have missed having Stanton's power in their lineup, so they have to be hoping that his rehab assignment goes swimmingly. If it does, he should be able to return to the lineup soon, and that will give the Bronx Bombers a big boost.
