At some point during Wednesday's win (NYY 8, TOR 7), everything changed.
He hit his first homer Monday and is 9-for-31 (.290) with seven RBIs in nine games this season. Boone announced Stanton would indeed be placed on the injured list following the game, and will not accompany the team to London.
Giancarlo Stanton has spent almost the entire 2019 season on the shelf. It was the first home run since April 20 for Judge, who returned Friday from an oblique injury that sidelined him for two months.
The four-time All-Star had rejoined NY on June 18 following a lengthy stint on the injured list due to a left biceps tear, a left shoulder strain, and a left calf strain. I've always loved pitching here even though I haven't necessarily pitched well here. I think it kind of explains the pain he was in when he came in, so [I'm] frustrated for him, knowing how much he's worked to get back, and the couple of setbacks he's had along the way getting back. Felt like he was starting to get in a groove with us a little bit.

As the Yankees left for London, Giancarlo Stanton was off to a familiar place.
"Obviously when he's going well (he's) one of those are guys that can impact a game in a profound way and carry a club when he's rolling hot", Boone said.
With Stanton once again headed to the shelf for a yet-unspecified period of time, the Yankees will likely lean on Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks and Aaron Judge as the primary outfielders with newly acquired Edwin Encarnacion lining up as the primary designated hitter. He led off the top of the ninth inning with a single and eventually came around to score, as the Blue Jays rallied against Aroldis Chapman but ultimately fell short. On Tuesday, New York set the Major League Baseball record for consecutive games with a homer (28) in a 4-3 win. Still, the sooner they get Stanton back and keep him healthy, the more risky they will be.
