Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports that New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is expected to begin a rehab assignment on Saturday. Stanton will report to Double-A Somerset and will likely get reps as a DH. Stanton has been on the injured list since July 23 with an Achilles injury. The Yankees could use Stanton back as they have been on a downward spiral during his absence. The slugger was a big part of their lineup, hitting 24 home runs and driving in 61 runs in his All-Star first half.New York Yankees Betting Odds
