Giancarlo Stanton was finally starting to come around with the bat over the past few days, but he could now be looking at an extended absence.
According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, Stanton left tonight’s game against the Mets with a strained right hamstring. The young slugger suffered the injury when he tried to beat out a tapper in front of the plate in the bottom of the tenth inning. After he crossed the bag and was called out, he quickly grabbed at the back of his right leg and fell down in a heap. Not a pretty sight.
The Marlins were dead-last in the majors in runs, batting average, slugging percentage, OPS and home runs coming into play tonight and things don’t figure to get any better without the only legitimate threat in their lineup.
