Dexter Fowler robbed Adrian Gonzalez of a homer

Adrian Gonzalez hit a homer in the first inning of last night’s Dodgers-Rockies game. He had what should have been a homer in the third inning too, but Dexter Fowler decided one was enough:

The game was long and blah and most of the crowd left before it was over, but that is one nice stab.

Giancarlo Stanton will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with High-A Tampa. That according to the team’s Tweet to that effect.

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. Figure he’ll need a week or so of minor league games to get back to playing speed.

At the time Stanton’s injury seemed to be a catastrophic thing for the team’s chances, but after a sluggish start the Yankees have been on fire for weeks and now sit in first place in the American League East.

Still, getting Stanton back will be a big boost for the New York lineup. He’s hit a few homers in his time, I hear.
