Since coming off the IL, Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Choose haven’t developed considerably. Stanton served as the DH and went hitless and is in a one-for-16 slide with eight strikeouts. Choose entered as a pinch hitter and went -for-two to fall him to five-for-25, with no further-base hits in 6 games.“That was the initial video game he wasn’t managing the strike zone,’’ Boone said. “In a ton of means, he’s in advance of where I considered he’d be. I’m pleased with how he and Choose have bounced back physically.” … Clint Frazier, devoid of the mask he’s worn since spring training two. started, broke an -for-14 slide with a leadoff single in the seventh. … Gio Urshela extended his hitting streak to thirteen games with a second-inning double.

Boone said Stanton had seemed good at the plate until Wednesday’s decline.
