The New York Yankees have been hit hard by the injuries over the first half of the Major League Baseball season.

Nearly every All-Star on the roster has missed time this season with an injury. Perhaps the two biggest names that have missed time are outfielders Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton.

Both missed significant time with their respective injuries, but returned in the past two weeks.

Now, one could be going back on the Injured List.

On Tuesday night, Stanton left the Yankees' game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The team announced he suffered a knee contusion.

"Giancarlo Stanton left tonight's game with a right knee contusion. He will undergo an MRI tonight," the Yankees announced on Twitter.

Stanton missed the majority of the first half of the season with several injuries, but returned with a moonshot of a home run earlier this week.

The star outfielder left the game against Toronto after an awkward slide into third base. His hand appeared to be stepped on - which fans thought was the injury.

Instead, the Yankees announced he suffered a right knee contusion and will undergo an MRI.

New York is scheduled to take on the Boston Red Sox in London later this week.
