Finally, a timetable for Giancarlo Stanton.

The outfielder/designated hitter has been on the injured list with left Achilles tendinitis since July 26, retroactive to July 24, and had been spoken of mostly in generalities during his rehab.

Before Friday night’s game against the Blue Jays, however, Aaron Boone said Stanton is scheduled to start a rehab assignment Saturday with Double-A Somerset, which is playing this weekend in Bowie, Maryland.

Stanton will DH on Saturday and Sunday, then return to New York and face Luis Severino during a live batting-practice session Tuesday at the Stadium. If there are no setbacks, Boone indicated Stanton could be activated as soon as Wednesday.

But don’t expect him to be in the outfield anytime soon.

“Not yet,” Boone said. “He’ll DH those two games [Saturday and Sunday] and then come back and face Sevy in his live [on Tuesday]. Then we’ll kind of eventually get to that point and get him in the outfield, but first things first.

“We want to get him in that DH spot, just get him back in, and then we’ll kind of do what we did last year, where we kind of built him [up] on the run with the outfield reps [after Stanton returned from the IL in late May 2021 from a calf strain], and hopefully make that a part at some point. But not immediately.”

The Yankees’ offensive inconsistencies began before Stanton went on the IL, but his injury certainly hasn’t helped in that department. Entering Friday, the club was 8-15 since he last played.

Stanton is batting only .228 in 80 games but has hit 24 homers — third most on the team behind Aaron Judge’s 46 and Anthony Rizzo’s 28 entering Friday. He also has an .839 OPS.

Speaking of Sevy . . .

Severino, who has a right lat strain and was put on the 60-day IL against his wishes on Aug. 1, came through a 30-pitch bullpen session just fine. He said he’ll throw another bullpen session Saturday before his live BP session Tuesday.

“Bullpen was great,” he said. “I think I touched 92 [mph] . . . that’s really good for a bullpen . . . I feel normal. No soreness.”

Does Severino believe he could get big-league hitters out right now? “Oh yes,” he replied without hesitation.

Take a seat

Boone didn’t make it sound as if Aaron Hicks will be back in the starting lineup anytime soon.

The outfielder was hitting .217 with six homers and a .642 OPS in 103 games. He hasn’t started since Monday night against the Rays, when he went 0-for-3 and badly misplayed a ball in center.

“We’ll see,” Boone said Friday of the plans for Hicks’ playing time going forward. “He’ll get in there again at some point. Right now [it’s] off the bench. Each and every day’s a little bit different. We’re trying to do all we can right now to win ballgames and he needs to find a way to be a part of that too.”
