New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton says he'll be ready for Opening Day, according to Bryan Hoch of

Stanton has been dealing with a calf strain since February and was originally slated to miss the start of the 2020 season before the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the campaign.

Stanton is entering his third full season with the Yankees after being shipped from the Miami Marlins in a blockbuster trade. In his tenure with New York, Stanton has slashed .268/.349/.507 with 41 home runs in 176 games.

The Yankees begin their condensed 2020 schedule on July 23 against the defending World Series champion Washington Nationals.
