Giancarlo Stanton held out of lineup with sore right shoulder

The Miami Marlins will be opening up their series against the Philadelphia Phillies without their best — and arguably only — slugger as Giancarlo Stanton will be sitting out due to a sore right shoulder, according to Joe Frisaro.

Stanton has had a slow start to the season, as he is hitting just .167 with two extra-base hits, both doubles.

Placido Polanco will bat third and Greg Dobbs will hit cleanup. If it were possible for a team to score negative runs in a game, this is one way.
