MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports that Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is scheduled to begin a rehab stint with Single-A Jupiter on Tuesday, weather-permitting. If the weather cooperates and Stanton doesn’t suffer any setbacks, he could return to the Marlins from the disabled list on Friday to face the Mets.
Stanton has been on the disabled list since June 27, the day after he broke the hamate bone in his right hand. He had surgery on the 28th. The slugger hit the disabled list batting .265/.346/.606 with 27 home runs and 67 RBI in 318 plate appearances.
