Watch as Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton drives an 0-1 pitch from Rockies starter Jordan Lyles into the right-field home-team bullpen on Wednesday night in Miami …
It’s rare to see a hitter go oppo at Marlins Park, a power-sapping stadium. Only Giancarlo.
Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports that Orioles third baseman Tim Beckham underwent core muscle surgery in Philadelphia on Thursday and is expected to miss the next six to seven weeks.
Beckham, 28, was originally diagnosed with a strained left groin. He sustained the injury during spring training and reaggravated it on Monday against the Indians.
Beckham was off to a slow start, batting .179/.247/.262 in 93 plate appearances. Danny Valencia and Jace Peterson should handle the hot corner while Beckham is out.
