Injuries have inflicted some of MLB’s best Black Knights early in the 2021 season. MLBbro.com’s Mark Gray updates us on baseball’s Blackout.
Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge haven’t been able to stay healthy enough to remain in the lineup together and be the force that the Yankees expected when they paired Stanton (fresh off an MVP and 59-homer season in Miami) with Judge, a phenom who hit 52 bombs to break the MLB rookie record.
2018 was supposed to be the return of Mantle and Maris at Yankee Stadium.
Fast forward three seasons later and Stanton has just seven homers since 2019 and Judge has just 3 homers. There hasn’t been much reason to #ALLRISE. This season, both Black Knights are healthy and looking forward to seeing what type of OD damage they can do together for an extended stretch.
Brandon Carr says Stanton is the man the Yankees can least afford to lose if one of these elite sluggers were to fall out of the loop again.
