Giancarlo Stanton has another setback in Yankees rehab

First it was the biceps, then shoulder. Now, Giancarlo Stanton has had a calf setback.

The Yankees announced the star outfielder has been shut down from his rehab assignment with left calf tightness and will sit for seven-to-10 days, Aaron Boone said Wednesday. He then will be reevaluated.

Stanton was hit in the leg a few days ago and was held out of the High-A Tampa lineup Tuesday as a precaution. He was expected to play Wednesday before the Yankees announced the pause.

Stanton has played just three games this season and none since March 31. Originally he was placed on the injured list with a biceps problem, and later had a shoulder issue that required a cortisone shot.
