Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton was reinstated from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday, and he’ll bat fifth and play in right field against the Rays.
The 29-year-old slugger had been out since April 1 with a left biceps strain, then suffered a left shoulder strain while rehabbing from his biceps

During his six-game rehab that ended on Sunday, Stanton homered in his first four games, going deep four times with Class A Advanced Tampa and once with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
The Yankees have gone 34-17 without Stanton and Aaron Judge, who is out with a left oblique strain, in the lineup, and while several players have stepped up in their absence, New York will certainly welcome the boost from Stanton’s return.
