The Miami Marlins activated outfielder Giancarlo Stanton from the 15 day disabled list. Stanton underwent knee surgery in early July and was expected to miss 4 to 6 weeks.
Stanton was 5-16 with two home runs in a four-game rehab assignment at Class A Jupiter.
Before his injury, Stanton compiled an impressive batting line of .284/.364/.554 with 19 home runs, 50 RBI and a .919 OPS in 80 games played this season.
Stanton will return to a Marlins team that only scarcely looks like the team he left when he was injured.
Miami Marlins News – Emilio Bonifacio‘s thumb injury isn’t as bad as initially feared and could be back in the lineup for the Marlins in 2 to 3 weeks. The team placed INF Donnie Murphy on the 15-day disabled list.
