A trio of Yankees, Giancarlo Stanton, Josh Donaldson and Tommy Kahnle are rehabbing in Somerset on Tuesday with hopes of getting back to the Big Show with the Bronx Bombers as soon as this week.

“If all goes well today, I think I might be flying out to LA in the next day or so,” Josh Donaldson told reporters before the Yankees Double-A affiliate, Somerset Patriots took on the Portland SeaDogs on Tuesday.

The Yankees are in Seattle this week, and will be in Los Angeles to face the Dodgers on the weekend.

Donaldson is coming off a setback in a hamstring injury he suffered earlier in the year. On April 21 he was diagnosed with a Grade-1 strain, resulting in more time missed with the Big League club.

Meanwhile, Stanton is taking his return from a hamstring injury one day at a time.

“We’ll get through today and go from today,” Stanton said after BP.

Kahnle is a very interesting story. He has missed a better part of the last two years with arm issues. In his first stint with the Yankees, his 2020 season was cut short due to Tommy John Surgery.

After signing with the Dodgers in the off-season, Kahnle would miss the entire 2021 season, and wouldn’t pitch in a Major League game until the 2022 season.

This year, after returning to New York, Kahnle has been out all year with biceps tendonitis, and has been making a slow return to the hill with stints at Low-A Tampa and Triple-A Scranton. The hope is that Kahnle can make his MLB season debut this weekend when the Yankees visit the Dodgers.

“Tonight it’s just one inning clean,” Kahnle said on his hopes for his Double-A rehab assignment. “It will be awesome to contribute and help the team win.”

Kahnle added he is working on a new pitch that takes a little off his fastball.

“Command is one of my bigger things now, so I can get out there and throw strikes against the best hitters in the world.”

10 Photos To Celebrate Michael Phelps

Michael Phelps will celebrate his 38th birthday on June 30 and we have no choice but to honor the most decorated Olympian of all time.

Phelps was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1985 as a prodigy of his sport. Fast forward to the year 2000, he was the youngest man in the USA team for an Olympic Games at the age of 15.

Throughout his career as an Olympic swimmer, Phelps won 28 medals in total. He is now retired and spends some much deserved time with his wife and three sons.
