TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton homered twice in a minor league rehab game with Class A Tampa on Wednesday night.

Stanton hasn't played for the Yankees since March 31. He originally went on the injured list with a strained left biceps but strained his left shoulder while rehabbing and then had a rehab assignment with Tampa stopped after one game on May 20 due to left calf tightness.

Stanton went 2 for 3, striking out in the first, hitting a solo shot off the batters' eye in center during the third and added a fifth-inning two-run homer to right.

He also homered as the designated hitter on Tuesday night.

Stanton played seven innings in right field and was pinch-hit for in the bottom of the seventh.

Barring any issues, Stanton is expected to join Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre this weekend and could be back in the big leagues next week.
