Two of the Miami Marlins' biggest bats were out of the starting lineup Tuesday.

Right fielder Giancarlo Stanton and third baseman Hanley Ramirez both were late scratches because of sore right knees. Neither ailment is considered serious, and both players were hoping to return to the starting lineup Wednesday.

Stanton said he felt overall fatigue and soreness in his right knee Tuesday morning, a day after he took a special batting practice session to prepare for the All-Star Home Run Derby.

Manager Ozzie Guillen said he didn't think Stanton's 10-minute batting practice was the reason for the knee soreness.

But Stanton said he felt "fatigued" Monday because his body was "kind of overworked and it shut down a little bit."

Stanton said he still expects to participate in both Monday's Home Run Derby and Tuesday's All-Star game.

About 30 minutes after Stanton was scratched, Ramirez complained about discomfort in his knee.

"He's been sore for the last couple of days," Guillen said of Ramirez, who made two errors Monday in Miami's 6-5 loss.

Greg Dobbs started in right field and Donovan Solano started at third base.
