Giancarlo Stanton activated by Yankees after missing 32 games with strained hamstring

NEW YORK -- Giancarlo Stanton was activated by the New York Yankees on Tuesday after the designated hitter missed 32 games because of a strained left hamstring.

New York made the move before a series opener against Toronto. The Yankees also activated third baseman Gio Urshela, who has recovered from a bone spur in his right elbow, and right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga, who was sidelined with a medical condition the team did not specify.


Stanton hit cleanup against Toronto, ending Clint Frazier's 16 straight games as New York's No. 4 hitter, and Urshela hit fifth.

Right fielder Aaron Judge, limited to one game since Aug. 11 because of a strained right calf, is expected to be activated later this week.


Stanton hit .293 with three homers and seven RBIs in 14 games before he got hurt.
