The New York Yankees will be without one of their hottest hitters after the club announced outfielder Giancarlo Stanton was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left quad strain Monday.

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.

Stanton joins a growing list of Yankees position players already on the IL. New York was already without starters Aaron Hicks (wrist), Gleyber Torres (COVID-19), and Rougned Odor (knee).

Right-hander Albert Abreu will be recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Stanton's spot on the active roster.
