That being said, Marcus Stroman hyped up Giancarlo Stanton following his blazing start to affirm that the slugger is looking scary on the plate. Juan Soto also joined in to heap praise on Stanton’s grind. “To see him in the cage. He’s taking really serious swings and everything, I think. And now he’s getting payoff,” said Soto. Besides, Yankees manager Aaron Boone credited the slugger’s spring and off-season work. He revealed how Stanton has been having good at-bats since the start of the year, and to see him finally reap the rewards of his handwork is a fulfilling sight. Overall, Giancarlo Stanton finally succeeded in getting his old rhythm back. From now on, it’s just about capitalizing on the momentum and, most importantly, prioritizing health. Health is Stanton’s biggest asset as he moves forward into the season.
