Joe Frisaro of MLB.com passes along word that the Marlins have scratched Mike Stanton from Saturday’s lineup due to a right eye infection.

Stanton was scheduled to serve as Florida’s designated hitter on Saturday night against the Rays but was lifted a few hours before first pitch. Jose Lopez, who inked a minor league contract with the Marlins just nine days ago, will play DH instead.

Stanton has 16 home runs and 41 RBI in 67 games this season. He first showed the world his immense power potential last year with 22 homers in 100 games. The hope is he’ll be back after a day of rest.

The Marlins are in last place in the National League East with a 32-38 record, 11 1/2 games out of first.

    Well now, the Feesh seem to be swimming against a tide of undisclosed ailments, don’t they? Hanley can’t tie his shoes and the Iron Giant can’t see.

    Well, it’s father’s day. I’m going over to the pond to congratulate the bullfrog. My four can’t hold a candle to his twenty million or so.
