Giancarlo Stanton was able to play Sunday after tweaking his right side during an at-bat Saturday, going 1-for-3 with two walks, but the Marlins right fielder is still sore enough that he’s out of the lineup tonight.

Stanton told Joe Frisaro of that he expects to be back in the lineup tomorrow, but Frisaro speculates that the Marlins will hold him out again as a precaution.

It’ll be the 31st game Stanton has missed this season because of injuries, yet he still ranks second among NL hitters with 32 homers.

    This explains why he looked so bad at the plate in last night’s loss to the Reds. I would hate to think he walked twice because it hurt to swing, rather than having learned not to chase those low outside sliders at which he can’t seem to resist lunging. Earlier, he had struck out with two men on base and the Feesh trailing by a run.
