Stanton to sit a game or two
MIAMI — Giancarlo Stanton felt a tweak to his left side during an at-bat Saturday night against the Reds.
As precaution, the Marlins slugger was out of the lineup on Monday for the series opener against the Braves at Marlins Park.
Stanton, who has 34 homers and 81 RBIs, took it easy on Monday. He didn’t take batting practice.
Stanton said he should be ready for Tuesday night. But manager Ozzie Guillen may be cautious and sit Stanton again on Tuesday.
