Marlins give Stanton another day off
MIAMI – Still being cautious, the Marlins on Tuesday are giving Giancarlo Stanton another day of rest.
Stanton has a sore left intercostal muscle, and he was off on Monday. The Marlins slugger wasn’t available to pinch-hit.
Manager Ozzie Guillen said on Monday that he likely would give Stanton at least two days off. The Marlins wrap up their series with the Braves on Wednesday, and the team is off Thursday.
So there is a chance, Stanton could be held out until the weekend, when the Marlins begin a three-game set at the Mets on Friday.
