Mike Stanton out “at least two weeks” with strained quad

Mike Stanton left yesterday’s game with a strained right quadriceps muscle and told reporters this afternoon that he expects to miss “at least two weeks.”

Manager Edwin Rodriguez told Joe Frisaro of MLB.com that the Marlins’ training staff is “going to wait two or three more days” before re-evaluating Stanton’s status, with Frisaro writing that “the team is being extra cautious.”

Expectations are extremely high for Stanton after he bashed 43 homers between the minors and majors last season, including 22 homers in 100 games for the Marlins as a 20-year-old rookie who skipped Triple-A.
