Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton could be activated from the disabled list on Monday according to manager Mike Redmond, reports Joe Capozzi. Redmond says Stanton is “moving around great in the outfield”. The slugger has been sidelined since the end of April due to a strained right hamstring. The injury had sapped some of his power prior to that, as the right-hander had only three home runs in 88 trips to the plate. The 29 PA per home run rate is nearly twice his career average (16 PA per HR).
The Marlins could certainly use a healthy Stanton. At 16-44, they are on pace to win only 43 games over a full season, which would just barely put them ahead of the 1962 Mets, who went 40-120. The team is also averaging a meager 2.95 runs per game.
