TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who has been sidelined since March 31, got nine plate appearances in a simulated game and went through running drills Tuesday at the team's minor league complex in Tampa.

Stanton originally strained his left biceps, then his left shoulder. He played in one game for Class A Tampa on May 20, then was told to rest because of left calf tightness.

Danny Farquhar, who collapsed in the Chicago White Sox dugout last year because of a ruptured aneurysm and brain hemorrhage and signed a minor league deal with the Yankees in the offseason, and Ben Heller (Tommy John surgery) pitched to Stanton.

Stanton also did agility drills and ran the arc behind the infield on the grass, which is normally one of the final steps before starting a minor league rehab assignment.

Stanton played catch and fielded grounders in right field with Aaron Judge, who has been sidelined since April 21 by a strained left oblique.

Judge did straight line running afterward.
