Giancarlo Stanton is out of the Marlins’ lineup today for the third straight game because of a knee injury and told Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald that he’s unlikely to return before Friday, putting his status for the All-Star game in some doubt.

Stanton indicated that he’ll skip the All-Star game and the Home Run Derby if he’s not able to return for this weekend’s series versus the Cardinals. For now the Marlins are waiting on the results of an MRI exam.

According to Stanton the injury occurred Monday when he was standing in the outfield: “I was getting my legs and arms ready, just to throw somebody out, anticipating it, and bending my legs it kind of just locked up on me.”

That’s a new one, certainly.

    It is probably bad I just traded for him in my fantasy baseball league

      No one cares about your nerdy fantasy team.

    Mike Stanton would have played despite the injury.

    Anyone else not care at all about the all star game?

    I haven’t cared about the game since I found out that Bud Light did care about it. However, I was unapologetically looking forward to the home run derby because the Iron Giant was in it. I just hope this is nothing serious. I had pretty much kissed this season goodbye anyway, but I’ll have to buy it flowers and wave goodbye from the pier if he’s going to be out for any extended period of time.
