Yankees place Stanton on IL with quad strain
The move is retroactive to May 14.
Stanton sat out the Yankees' weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles with quad tightness.
The 31-year-old has been terrific for the Yankees following a slow start, hitting .282/.347/.534 with nine home runs and 24 RBIs since April 23.
Right-hander Albert Abreu will be recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Stanton's spot on the active roster.
