Originally written September 09, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Miami Marlins gave outfielder Giancarlo Stanton yesterday's weekend finale off to rest his ailing ankle. Miami hopes that the day off will allow Stanton to rejoin the team's lineup as they kick off their series against the Atlanta Braves, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com. Stanton has been nursing a sore right ankle since the beginning of the month. He suffered the injury when he rolled the ankle during a contest against the Braves, but he's played through the pain. The discomfort intensified during Saturday's contest, prompting manager Mike Redmond to remove Stanton from the game. The skipper considers the slugger day to day, but he's hopeful that the time off allows him to return for the Atlanta series. "After that last at-bat, I saw him hopping around on it," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. "We got him out of there. He was about the same today. He's day to day. We'll see how it goes." Stanton underwent an X-ray Saturday after his early exit, but the results came back negative. For that reason, the Marlins are confident Stanton won't be sidelined for an extended stretch. Still, it sounds like the outfielder could be required to play through pain for the remainder of the season. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
