Stanton was forced from Saturday’s 8-4 victory over Philadelphia after tumbling near first base while attempting to leg out a fifth-inning infield hit. He walked off the field under his own power, but the 21-year-old outfielder was sporting a noticeable limp.
The Marlins are hoping Stanton will feel fine after just one day of rest. He is available to pinch hit Sunday and should be back in the heart of Florida’s lineup for the start of a three-game set Monday with the Mets.
Stanton is batting .261/.351/.543 with 32 home runs and 81 RBI in 538 plate appearances this season.
