Giancarlo Stanton rejoins Marlins lineup after foot injury

2 Comments

X-rays were negative, so Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins’ lineup tonight after sitting out Sunday and Monday with a foot injury.

Stanton initially suffered the injury on September 1 and then aggravated it again Saturday.

He has 16 homers and a solid .838 OPS in 76 games since missing all of May and part of June with a hamstring injury, although Stanton’s overall production is down 130 points of OPS from 2012 and he’s slugging below .500 for the first time.
