Stantons value takes a (tiny) hit with the addition of Edwin E. You have to think that Encarnacion will be the everyday DH while Stanton plays the outfield on most nights. Knowing this, you would also have to think that when the Yankees are winning games late in the game he would be taken out for the likes of Brett Gardner as a defensive replacement. This may cost him at least an at bat every night the yanks have a decent lead. Not a crushing blow to his value, but it could def get annoying for Stanton owners.

Kinda shocked to see him batting 5th since he's been a staple in the 3rd spot since he's but on the pinstripes. I also have Voit so it's looking like he's sticking at the top of the lineup even with the return of Judge.

Box score was ugly. How did he look?
To me he seems to take some time to get going, so kinda considering sitting him against Snell.
2 for 10 career with 1 HR. Snell big reverse lefty/righty split.

There's a chance in an uptick in off days and him being replaced for defense, but besides that his value should be pretty unchanged. It's difficult to predict that type of stuff anyway so I wouldn't factor it in his value ROS.

Too much working out. Too much muscle. Too tight. Not flexible. 

He looks like a walking DL stint even when hitting. Just doesn't look very flexible.

 

I mean, some of that may be true, but I don't know what it has to do with someone stepping on his hand today.
