MLB Injury News:
Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton has been
diagnosed with a bruised left shoulder. While the injury has kept Stanton out of the Marlins’ lineup this weekend, it won’t require a trip to the disabled
list, according to The Associated Press.
Stanton underwent an MRI on the ailing shoulder on Saturday
morning after discomfort kept him from playing Friday night against the
Philadelphia Phillies. The evaluation revealed no structural damage and he’s
considered day-to-day by Miami.
Marlins manager Mike Redmond told reporters that the MRI
revealed the “best news possible.”
"It's the best possible news," Miami manager Mike
Redmond said. "Obviously, you have someone like him out and it's tough.
The other guys just have to step up."
Stanton has gotten off to a rough start to the season. Some
of this can likely be attributed to the mass exodus – including Jose Reyes,
Emilio Bonifacio and Hanley Ramirez – over the last year removing some of his
protection in the lineup. His drop off in production early may also have
something to do with his shoulder issue.
