It’s not quite a fair tradeoff, but the Marlins lost an outfielder to the disabled list and gained an outfielder from the DL. And it might be the best combination of never ever linked in the same transaction.
Giancarlo Stanton was placed on the DL after undergoing knee surgery that will sideline him for 4-6 weeks and Emilio Bonifacio returns from the DL after missing the past two months with a thumb injury that required surgery.
Bonifacio showed almost zero power before the injury, but got on base at a .351 clip and went 20-for-21 stealing bases as Miami’s everyday center fielder. Stanton underwent surgery on July 8, so today’s move simply made his DL stint official. He’ll be out for 4-6 weeks.
