Found June 10, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Fans of the Miami Marlins have had very little to cheer about so far in 2013. Since slugging right fielder Giancarlo Stanton went on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain on April 30, they have had even less reason to cheer. Now, fans will get to see their favorite Marlin launch balls far into the stands once again. FOX Sports Florida's Charlie McCarthy reports that the Marlins have activated Stanton on Monday afternoon, and the slugger should be in the lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday night. To make room for him on the roster, the Marlins placed Casey Kotchman on the 15-day disabled list.'s  Marlins beat writer Christina De Nicola confirmed the news: #Marlins moves: Giancarlo Stanton recalled from rehab & reinstated from DL; Casey Kotchman to 15day DL w/left oblique strain, retro 6/9 — Christina De Nicola (@CDeNicola13) June 10, 2013 Now that Stanton is healthy, questions may resurface about whether or not he will remain a Marlin after the season. As MLB Injury News's Blanie Blontz reported on June 9, the emergence of rookie outfield prospect Marcell Ozuna could make it tough for the Marlins to keep Stanton long term. De Nicola explains that Ozuna is slated to play center field for now with Stanton back in right. What team would not want Giancarlo Stanton in its lineup? He is known for slamming home runs so hard and far that they break long distance records as well as scoreboards. He hit 93 home runs in his first three full years with a career-high 37 in 2012, all with a .268 career average and .349 OBA. He also drove in 232 runs in his first three years. This year, Stanton is hitting .227 with 3 HR and 9 RBI. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
