9 Comments

Great news, Angels fans! Kendrys Morales had surgery on his left ankle today and, according to the team, the surgery was deemed a success.

Indeed, this is the best news Angels fans have heard since last year, when Kenrdys Morales had surgery on his left ankle and it was deemed a success!

It’s gonna be hard to top all of this success with future surgeries on Morales’ left ankle, but given their track record so far, I’m sure they can at least maintain this level of success indefinitely!

The New York Yankees have activated Giancarlo Stanton. He’ll be in the lineup in tonight’s game against the Rays.

Stanton has been on the injured list since April 1 due to a left biceps strain and a left shoulder strain sustained in what Aaron Boone called a “funky swing” at the time. He began a rehab assignment in late May, had it halted due to injury, and resumed it recently. He’s been swinging the bat well during his most recent stint, socking four homers in ten games.

That pop will be welcome. The Yankees have weathered Stanton’s injury — and injuries to Aaron Judge and scads of other players — but a team can’t defy gravity forever. At some point you need your established threats back. With Stanton coming back tonight, Judge coming back later this week and with the addition of Edwin Encarnación in that trade with Seattle, the Bombers should continue to hit bombs throughout the summer.
